Timeless, brilliant and romantic in a classic way, this surprising little record comes around. If it knocks on your door - let it in. Its a good one. A really good one. Moody cinematic moments with 'Paranoia', reminds on old crime movie soundtracks and 'Departure Lounge' would have been perfect on a sixties space-romance hippie movie. One track more delicious than the other.

An ode to old charming library music records.
More than highly recommended.

A clean example has got to be worth £30 pounds its just so 60s but evades cheesyness quirky and different far away from warps usual releases.

Harmonic 33 takes film library music and brings it firmly into the future with _Music For Film, Television and Radio, Volume 1_. And while Pritchard and Brinkworth have included -- cheekily -- a short description of each track in the liner notes, those in no way convey the actual content. From the swinging outer space groove of "Optigan" to the whirling funhouse of "Carousel," Harmonic 33 knows how to pack the maximum mood in a short space. The easy listening flows slick with "Bossa Nova Supernova" and "Departure Lounge." If some out-and-out weirdness is the craving, then heads towards "Funky Duck;" if you prefer spy dramas, then "Paranoia" and "Long Shadow" are there for you. Even the shorter pieces, like the archaic and creepy "Marionette" carries its weight well. The album closes with the thoughtful and melancholy "Planet 54" -- it's better that you don't hear these tracks playing behind an image from your television, because they're best heard playing directly into your head.

This is one of those releases that could just pass you by on the first listen, but you'd be well advised to try it again. The LP doesn't contain all the segue tracks that are on the CD version, which is actually a good thing, it means a far more consistent listen. Bubbley and fun, this has more depth each time you hear it.
Even my girlfriend likes it.
Sound out tracks; 'Departure Lounge', 'Optigan' and the fantastic 'Long Shadow'.

A truly excellent album in the classic Warp records style. Harmonic 33 is what Warp used to be. Music For Film, Television And Radio Volume 1 is one of the finest albums to come out on Warp since Prefuse 73’s One Word Extinguisher. There’s a world of difference between Extraordinary People and MFTR Vol. 1. Mark Pritchard’s more ambient style presides over Dave Brinkworth ‘s Hip-Hop styling. The entire album flows flawlessly with short piano Marionettes and Space Intervals that sew each together. Opens beautifully with Optigan and ends on an even better note with Planet 54 a 60’s Sci-Fi soundscape. I hope the title means possible future installments because I can’t wait.
