Lewis Idle – “The Night We Almost Fell In Love” (Audio)

March 11, 2014 § Leave a comment

“He loves you with that everlasting love. True love.” – Donna Hayward, Fire Walk With Me. 

COLOR FACE

Though Valentine’s Day is consigned once more to its annual past, love’s lamentations have not yet been lost this year. Yes, courtesy of Trashmouth Records we have this hard-edged innocence by Lewis Idle, New Malden’s mysterious and felt tip pen-wielding balladeer who, 13-seconds in, had me lit up like it was the first day of Summer. As the title suggests, The Night We Almost Fell In Love is nostalgic, but in both senses; a tale of missed opportunity with ‘50s-era sensibilities and sonic style updated by thundering guitar punctuations. Sounds like: The Jesus And Mary Chain crooned a $5 shake for my ears. And so, 2014 may very well not see romantic regret pitched in such authentic derivation again, but that’s something we can lament next year, along with this year’s lost loves.

Two Fingers – “Razorback”/ “Magoo” (Big Dada)

October 15, 2012 § Leave a comment

If you imagine Mantronix as a Kenworth K100 truck, Two Fingers is what happens when the truck turns into Optimus Prime.

And there could be no more applicable audio accompaniment to that quote from Big Dada than today’s release from the double A-side single, Razorback. Alongside Sweden and from their just-released Stunt RhythmsRazorback is a glitchy frontrunner on an album that has seen 3 years pass since bi-collaborators Two Fingers’ last release. Fitting Amon Tobin’s departure from his celebrated A/V soundscapes, Stunt Rhythms is a gluttonously-heavy audio-caterer.

Razorback:

And from the same album, Magoo booms like robotic West Coast:

Special Request – “Lolita (Warehouse Mix)”

October 7, 2012 § Leave a comment

Earlier this year, prolific UK producer and DJ Paul Woolford unleashed a fresh nom de guerre onto the music scene. Though his better-known alias may still be Bobby Peru, Special Request’s March vinyl-only release, Lolita (Warehouse Mix), has done sufficient damage to render this limitless and energetic new moniker bound to the consciousness. As the title suggests, this is warehouse-appropriate party-fodder, but with a bassline so playful it’s addictive, it comes with mood-enhancement guaranteed.

Available from Phonica Records.

Shed – “I Come By Night” (50 Weapons)

July 27, 2012 § Leave a comment

Released today and marking the artist’s debut on Berlin’s 50 Weapons, Shed’s confidently-titled third album, The Killer, looks set to capitalise on its audio-murderous intent. Stalking you like a stealthy techno assassin, I Come By Night is the third track on this consistent release and my pick for its delicious darkness, weight, and haunting synth floatation. Absolutely merciless.

Available to download at 50 Weapons.

Bixio, Frizzi & Tampera – “Nucleo Antirapina”

It’s hot in the city, and I have an urge to go on a stakeout, spaghetti-style. Relevant theme music does not come better than Nucleo Antirapina, I find.
