Hotel Lux – Daddy


 

1 Sir Robert Orange Peel – Ravers (2)

The man’s a fucking genius, not many tracks can capture what a rave sounds like coming out of a Croydon light industrial estate at 4 in the morning

2  Audiobooks – Friends In The Bubblebath (18)

Great tune with shades of New York old school club about it. Sort of thing BOP remember’s hearing in Red Hook back in the early 2000’s .

3  Sleeves – Out on the Dancefloor (19)

Hong Kong rockers and their Wanchai rock sound still reverberates on sweaty beery nights down by the harbour.
4  R.M.F.C – The Clue (100)

Garage will never die as long as there are cheap guitars and amps on offer and in our book these things are important for civilisation to continue.
5  Ossia – Hell Version (270)

Out of Bristol ( we think?) We suggest playing this and Sir Robert Orange Peel’s “Ravers” back to back on repeat for about two days to give you that desperately needed bass overload ! All the tracks on this new 12″ are worth checking out. Top release.

6  Faux Ferocious – Price of Progress  362)

Ok , yes this is a bit Brooklyn 2006 in a Rapture kind of way  but it still works. He sounds as though he means what he’s singing and it’s a top bass line.

7  Low Life – The Pitts  (410)

Yaaay – Sydney’s Low Life are back and still on form. Ok it’s a bit cleaner than early days but who are we to complain.  All we can hope for that it stirs Melbourne’s Cuntz back into action .. we miss them so much.Solid Mates is still one of the best things about this century

8  Tiger & Woods – Balloon (485)

More updated Italo repeato house 4 to the floor from the current masters of the form. Amalfi Motorik we shall call it

9 The Proper Ornaments  – Please Release Me (488)

And the Proper Ornaments are back too and they have just gone into the stratosphere with this one. The opening coda and chorus  just has us enthralled. Somehow all of Pet Songs  & Revolver shoved into one song but not a hint of nostalgia.  Maybe this is what the LA’s really wanted to sound like. Absolutely hooked.

10  Electric Potato – Another Brick In The Wall (857)

Current Italo cover of  late era Floyd with the silliest outfit name of the year so far. We love it and so should you.


PLANETARY (LOS ANGELES) NEED PR FOR COLLEGE RADIO
THEY ARE THE BEST & REAL PEOPLE TOO

GRAHAM DOMAIN COLD MOON HARMONICS

New artist out of Manchester with an amazing album that has a Japan and John Martyn feel about it ,all at the same time. The songs are class. Beautiful, classic leftfield British songwriting. If you like JD Meatyeard et al you’ll fall in love with this.

SIR ROBERT ORANGE PEEL
TURN THAT BLOODY RACKET DOWN

Any LP that starts off with a wonderful farting synth and proceeds to erupt into a fury of lo fi funk before going on to a sample of telephone scammers over a slow drumbeat (slow very funny and very strange) is what the world is crying out for…… insane but brilliant!

Because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know.

We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know.

But there are also unknown unknowns – the ones we don’t know we don’t know.
