New spacy Balearic gear from Bubble Club on the consistently, um, spacy and Balearic International Feel records. This one kind of floats around in a lively Tood Terje / Harvey fashion and has a wonderful string drop that will work well in the sunshine. Released in March on their usual super fat 180g vinyl with deluxe packaging.
PANORAM – ACCENTS
A fine seven track EP/mini LP of abstract, leftfield, sort of jazzy electronica that is really rather fine. Bleep.com say: “6 tracks of warm, fuzzy fusion pinned down by some lead-heavy beats and idiosyncratic production nuances that recall some old school Major Force vibes.
They are right, it has a really good atmosphere, groove and feel.
GONJASUFI – MUZZLE
The eccentric Gonjasufi continues to delight and annoy in equal measure with a distorted, grimy, beautiful new EP of guitar screeches, crunchy beats and great little melodies.
Strut just keep coming up with the retro quality. Here they track some of Mighty Sparrow’s finest and funniest moments from the 60s and 70s with the descriptively titled – Sparrowmania – Wit, Wisdom and Soul from the King of Calypso 1962-1974.
It includes the end of the night classic What’s The Use Of Getting Sober (when you’ll only get drunk again). Excellent.
