Various Soma Coma Vol. 2
- Words: Michael Byrne
- Label: Soma
- XLR8R Rating: 7/10
Scottish label Soma’s cred lies on the dancefloor, but its downbeat side has certainly been responsible for more than a few afterparty shenanigans. Collected here, for the second time, is an impressive smattering of songs from Soma–from rather hokey electronica to sublime deep-space bliss to an odd bit of straight-up reggae–showcasing its contributions to the morning after. It’s all nice enough while feeling, well, a bit retro but, all told, Slam (found frequently in banging form) and Black Dog (contributing two tracks from 1993’s Temple of Transparent Bells) run away with the comp, which should be of little surprise.
