Fawns of Love – Someday

Someday is the first single to be lifted from the new Fawns of Love album Permanent that will be released next year on Test Pattern Records. Somewhat remarkably Someday fuses New Order and the Cocteau Twins to great effect and the husband and wife duo of Jenny & Joseph Andreotti create an excellent tune that is ideal for the indie dance floor. I reckon it’s ripe for a remix too and Test Pattern Records have previous form in that department so lets hope something is in the offering! Homepage Continue reading Fawns of Love – Someday

Soft Science – Sooner/Paris

Soft Science follow up their recent Undone single with another fine effort in the shape of Sooner. It’s very Lush (pun intended) as it sounds pretty similar to that band’s output circa 1990-1991.

The single is due for release next month via Test Pattern Records on 7″ vinyl and digital formats. Facebook Continue reading Soft Science – Undone/I Don’t Know Why I Love You

The Luxembourg Signal – Dying Star (Cirrus)

Dying Star was one of my favourite tracks from last years self titled debut album by The Luxembourg Signal. Here it gets the remix treatment from Robert Hampson (Loop/Main) who adds drone and psychedelic shimmering guitars into the mix that further emphasise the ethereal vocals. Most excellent. It’s out now on a split 7″ vinyl (with Soft Science ex Holiday Flyer/California Oranges) and digital formats via Test Pattern Records. Buy it from here. And here is the original: Homepgage Facebook Continue reading The Luxembourg Signal – Dying Star (Cirrus)
