7 May 2013, 11:06 by HealeyIsland"It combines two of my favourite things - a laconic observational lyric ("The End of history is now a shopping mall - selling hairslides and bagels to the underclass") - and a lazy irresistible groove...... squelchy synth stylings make the production instantly memorable - if this gets widely played on the radio it'll instantly become one of those tunes that transport people back to the specific time and era when they first heard it. An instant nostalgia for those good old days of Spring 2013." tom robinson bbc 6 music writing about the track The End of History from the new HealeyIsland album On Ponzi Bridge.
New HealeyIsland album On Ponzi Bridge is out now on WLM through iTunes, Amazon et al. A Bargain at £5.99. Go on, treat yourself.
"IF THERE'S one electronica album you buy this year I'd make it On Ponzi Bridge by HealeyIsland" writes Lee Trewhela from Devon and Cornwall Media.

The next HealeyIsland album is due out in early 2013 on White Label Music but in the mean time here is a taster with a video. This track The End of History features special guest appearances by georg wilhelm friedrich hegel and yoshihiro francis fukuyama and might be best described as squelchy odd pop. Look out for the album which is to be called On Ponzi Bridge.
We hope you enjoy this pre-release sample.

The server used, which is set up by someone I know, couldn't handle the size of the total content used for a 24/7 stream, it's good enough for a basic simulisten service for which it's originally set up.
it might come back in time, no idea when though. Till that time, all audio used for the stream, the podcasts and the compilation albums, are available for Free Download at these places:

"HealeyIsland is a one-man arts, a man hell bent on creating a slipstream genre located somewhere in the twilight zone between dark electronica and light muzak."
The HealeyIsland album Not Afternoon, But Evening is now available to buy on iTunes
Fully streamable here on LastFM.
