One of the stand-out cuts from his ‘Years Not Living’ LP, ‘With All Your Eyes Look’ is a mesmerising piece (much like the rest of the album) that draws from a smorgasbord of influences both past and present to create a rich tapestry of driven psychedelia. Fits rather nicely around the section containing Beck, Tortoise, Can, Caribou and Dan Deacon. There are rich pickings with some diverse mixes too.
After a collaborative effort with krautrock legend, Harald Grosskopf (Ashra/Cosmic Jokers), Standard Planets team up with Arthur Russell affiliates, Arthur’s Landing, for the release of this interesting, no-wave oddity. Of historical note, the preparation for ‘Dumbo Dumbo’ was completed, in parallel, during the fabled Dinosaur L sessions of 1978, but shelved until now, with Arthur’s Landing piecing together the remnants; you can clearly hear the groundwork, now given a fitting restoration. To accompany, the coiling ‘Miracle’ holds an exquisite charm that suggests the sublime synth-pop stamp of Talk Talk.
Ben Gomori of Let's Play House/Discobelle flips classics from Earth, Wind & Fire, George Michael and Marvin Gaye into three club-ready edits.
Svreca’s prolific label continues its mission to represent the underground. ‘Revoke’ is a big room pulser, while ‘Pygmalion’ sees S100 go deeper and more hypnotic. However, neither can compare to the humming bass and slamming beats that drive the title track.
