The legendary label is nearly a decade young, believe it or not. Dan Carey, Alexis Smith and Pierre Hall’s baby just keeps going from strength to strength, as evinced by their latest compilation.
From Lazarus Kane’s opener Narcissus, a kind of hyper- caffeinated Talking Heads meets Hot Chip groove, through to The Lounge Society’s broody post-punk Generation Game, to deep tan and the angular tamu’s yiffing refuge, which is as lower case and awkward as it looks on the page, the label remains as ambitious and dynamic as ever.
Long may the little label that could confound and inspire with their dynamic and disparate artists.
Released on July 29th.
