DELTA FLORA is the third album by Hughscore (previously called Caveman Shoestore). The band pairs British bassist Hugh Hopper (Soft Machine) with the Seattle-based trio of bassist/guitarist Fred Chalenor, keyboardist/singer Elaine di Falco, and drummer Tucker Martine. The tandem and contrasting basses are used to shimmering effect, with Hopper's characteristic fuzztones sounding as lush as ever.
The band again revisits an old Soft Machine number. "Was a Friend" opens the set, and di Falco retains every bit of the mystery and allure of Robert Wyatt's lyrics. She also sings on four other vocal numbers with equally compelling results. Hopper wrote the bulk of the material, and these are some of the most gorgeous songs he's penned in 25 years. Instrumental delights abound, with "Spacelift" displaying Hopper's hypnotic way with layered and repeated melodies. Guest musicians include pedal-steel player Jon Hyde and a handful of horn players, among them another Soft Machine alumnus, alto saxophonist Elton Dean.
