REVIEW: LUMINOCITY SANTIAGO

Miller & Felix Da Housecat bring the night flight to Chile
Solito - Jose Padilla - International Feel

As much as Wolf Muller and Bubble Club add a certain twist of modernity into ‘Solito’, it’s the unmistakeable sounds and arrangements that can only come from within a veteran and resident of the Balearic scene himself, that result in ‘Solito’s authentic appeal.  IF continue the Balearic renaissance in classic and true to its roots form.  Beautiful.

Atlas - Troy Gunner - Electro Magnetic Fields

The fifth release on Indigo’s sister label to the Mindset imprint is from friend and label mate Mr Gunner. ‘Atlas’ is a pulsing technoid beast, check ‘Pheromone’, sounding like the bastard offspring of early Big Apple stuff and Zinc’s '138 Trek', but pitched right down, and the oscillating funk of ‘Manifest’. Before terminating on ‘Backstab’ with its raggedy staccato roll. An EP that has plenty to offer.

Chimes - Hudson Mohawke - Warp

If ‘Chimes’ is anything to go by, then the full four-track EP — that we are still waiting to get our grubby little mitts on — should be a bit of a belter.

 

Dumbo Dumbo/Miracle - Standard Planets & Arthur’s Landing - Fin A Dee Six

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.
