Winding Down

Waiting on my results for the year is not an easy time, lucky my long time buddy the shuffle button was there to lend a helping hand and pretty much nailed it this time. Tracks after your daily dose of culture in picture form!

Dug out Felix's excellently titled Devin Dazzle & The Neon Fever LP yesterday, could have sworn I'd posted all my favourites from it, imagine my surprise when I hadn't. Harking back to the diamond days of the Kittenz & Thee Glitz, this here is a sleazy slow number that dabbles a little bit in French. Real standout, and a unique vibe from Felix, if a little short.

Then straight away I got dumped into the retro-futuristic vibes from the end of Teenage Bad Girl's debut with even more french. Think electro house meets a power ballad a la Take My Breath Away and you're almost there, save for their then trademark vocoder, A lovely more darker turn than the electro vibes on tracks like Cocotte.

And finally a bit of Moderat's newest, I wasn't expecting this the first time I dove into the LP, after the minimal-meets-garage theme their self titled had. It's a pleasant surprise mind, Apparat has shown his mettle with downtempo stuff before, so to hear it taken on by both him and Modeselektor is a real treat.

That Moderat song is quite beautiful.
