So, I wasn’t going to write about out favourite synth weirdos Funerals’ new track for two reasons. Firstly because it is unmastered, and I’m sure the master will sound better and secondly because the said the unmetered stream would only be up for twenty Four hours. However, they have decided to leave the stream up due to an overwhelming positive response, and it sounds amazing even unmastered. So dive in!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; the reason I love Funerals is because they sound a lot like early Warp records/Bleep House stuff mixed with a bit of Cabaret Voltaire, two sounds that are very close to my heart. And ‘Boo Sra’ doesn’t disappoint in either department. to be released as part of a split EP with Ritualz, ‘Boo Sra’ is a deep pulsating House track with enough moody tones and otherworldly atmospheres to keep the most hardcore Bleep House nostalgia hunter happy. A deep ‘90’s House vibe permeates the track and all those synthetic, alien, bleeps would make it the perfect fodder for a dark warehouse rave in the late ‘80’s/early ‘90’s, which makes it perfect fodder for me.

Northampton one-man-band The Electroscopes is back with some new tracks for you.
We wrote about this progressive ElectronicaPop producer last year as he was gearing up for the release of his ‘Harder Each Day’ single. Well, after a bit of label shuffling, the single is finally out on 28th of this month through Red Robot Records (owned by Warp’s Lex Loofah). To commemorate the occasion The Electroscopes have send on over these two tracks, not featured on the EP, as a bonus.
‘Let Yourself Fail’ is a downtempo Sci-fi ElectroPop tune who’s atmospheric and abrasive synths serve as a counterpoint to the haunting vocals. It’s 3 and a half minutes of enveloping electronic Pop while ‘Daydream Not Believer’, is boarderline old school EBM, kinda’ like a Front 242 B-side. I haven’t heard a track like that in years!

‘Harder Each Day’ is released 28th February.

This coming week sees UK Disco-heads Mighty Mouse release their début artist album.
Titles ‘Song With No Words’ the album consists of ten ‘Movements’ ranging electronic Lounge Jazz to Cosmic Disco to pure smooth Funk. Meticulously crafted and staggeringly well produced the album is more of a journey through analog grooves, flowing from one track to the next, than ten straight songs and manages to sound almost cinematic at times.
Check out ‘Movement 5’, one of the jazzier tracks on the record, but who doesn’t like a little jazz in their lives every now and then?

‘Song With No Words’ is released 6th December on History/Disco Circus Records.
