When it comes to artist names they are certainly no U2 in the simplicity stakes but ROBERT WYATT + BERTRAND BURGALAT are worth the mental energy. Their ‘This Summer Night’ track is a really blissful piece of New Music which has a definite French vibe about it, could imagine humming this as you cycled around the sunny, French southern coast and thinking life couldn’t get much better.
A much more violent and in your face energy about new The Kills track, ‘Cheap and Cheerful’ was showing potential when ever it reverberated between my ear drums but it’s the SEBASTIAN remix that sealed the deal. This is twisted, funky dancefloor beatage of a quality that would make Justice proud.
ELECTRICUTE’s ‘On The Beat’ probably wins my ‘most fun piece of Brand New Music’ heard this week award. Its almost onomatopoeic in that the name gives a real clear idea as to the upbeat, poppy vibe of this fab piece of Brand New Music. If The Ting Tings wrote this it would be Number One without a shadow of a doubt.
