Planetary Peace

In 1980, the husband/wife duo of Will and Kalima Sawyer built a mail order Serge synthesizer together at their home in London, and then recorded an album of quirky, devotional, cosmic new age in their living room on a Teac tape machine.  The end result was "Synthesis," which the pair released on a very limited run of cassettes (mostly to friends and family) under the moniker of Planetary Peace.  Unearthed a couple of years ago at a yard sale in New Mexico, the album recently got a reissue from Love All Day...which unfortunately is now sold out in all physical formats.  But, you can still download the whole album here for a dollar.  And you should do that because it's wonderful.  Listen to "Silence of Night" below.
