Chad Valley is Hugo Manuel's (weird name for somebody who is ginger and from Oxford, I have to say) from Jonquil solo project. He says "CHAD VALLEY is a sampler, a delay pedal, lots of reverb and a stack of records". In this description he even excludes himself as part of the project giving pure protagonism to the music that comes out from experimenting with different sounds in his bedroom. In comparison to Jonquil, a rhythmic band with African / tropical influences, Chad Valley is more dreamy and introspective although those influences are still there on tracks like A Complete Diagram, but this time more sampled base rather than performing all the music live. The result is Summer music for evocative sunkissed evenings you will enjoy if you spent the last year listening to Washed Out and Toro y Moi.
