Fuzzed-out psychedelia

The Limiñanas have put out a compilation of singles and are tracks 2009-2014. Making their impressive self-titled debut in 2010, followed by Crystal Anis 2012 and Costa Blanca 2013. Titled as I've got trouble in mind (7' and rare stuff 2009/2014), the lead track is as high quality that we’ve come to expect from The Limiñanas with their take on vintage sounds: Gainsbourg, French new wave, and the Velvet Underground etc. The French duo of Lionel and Marie Limiñana have this wonderful knack of creating retro sounds that sound fresh and exciting, this selection of covers and obscurities is just as vital as their 3 LPs.

French Disco Boogie Sounds

Fresh this month comes a new disco compilation compiled by Charles Maurice, French Disco Boogie Sounds 1975-1984. There are some belters on here, all dating back to disco’s golden era there’s a few rarities and obscure gems.

After the Brazilian Disco Boogie Sounds compilation, Favorite Recordings follows-up with the concept, this time focusing on its homeland language. Digging into the mysterious Charles Maurice’s vinyl collection, the label and the DJ extracted 10 amazing hidden dancefloor hits, all produced between 1975 and 1984 within the French music scene.

On one hand, tracks by Overdrive, Marché Noir, Didier Makaga or France-Lise, were mostly composed and produced by underground artists and labels from the French Caribbean and African community, and also filled with the raw spirit and power of this Tropical stamping. On the other hand, tracks by Beckie Bell, Kelly, Le Club, or Bernard Guyvan, were all released by major French labels such as Trëma, Carrere, Disques Vogue, or Pathé Marconi, and created by confirmed independent producers, acting not only in France, but also in Canada and the US.

Despite being called Toulouse, this Female disco trio were from Montreal, Canada. They were made up of studio backing vocalists who decided to team up as a group in 1975. C’est toujours comme ça l’amour originally came out as a single in 1981 and featured on the album Trois Dimensions.

Tropical dance

Swedish duo Cocotaxi create a unique sound with a plethora of worldly influences. Afro-Mexicana via eastern Europe electro-tropicalia. Taken from a new EP Sucre, named after Sucre, Bolivia the place rather than the french word for Sugar. With Bolivian percussion traditions it’s a joyous sound to behold.

O' I know

LA PRIEST (pronounced ‘Lah Pree-st’) is a project from reclusive electronic musician Sam Dust, aka Sam Eastgate, who we last heard fronting Late of the Pier. Having previously used the moniker for a 12" release on Erol Alkan's Phantasy label in 2007.

Oino, Dust's new single, is the first material to surface from the artist since the hiatus of Late Of The Pier and has this infectious electro-reggae vibe that loops around your head. Psychedelic guitars stab through the pulsating rhythms concocting an exciting new sound. love this.

Four years since they released Dring, French duo Nicolas Sfintescu & Ezéchiel Pailhès aka: Nôze release their fifth LP Come with us. Saint slowly builds up from acoustic strums, marching beats to haunting house with a touch of a spaghetti western soundtrack. Better go with them on this one.

I don't care about anyone

A late highlight from last year, I love the steel pans in this tune by Doss. Taken from Doss' self-titled debut EP, still getting regular plays a year older. About time we had some new material from Doss then!

Coisa Boa

Nice remix from Javelin of Moreno Veloso Em Todo Lugar Voz Boa, which appears on the Brazilian’s Coisa Boa LP. He is one of the sons of the legendary Brazilian singer Caetano Veloso and his first wife Andréa Gadelha Veloso.

Carrie & Lowell

Widely regarded as his best album to date, Carrie & Lowell is an LP that definitely earns respect with every play. Sufjan Stevens is often a required taste, here he sounds at his most intimate, stripped back to lush arrangements. Should Have Known Better is a beautiful song.

Hangin' On A String (Contemplating) is the fourth single by Loose Ends from their second studio album, So Where Are You?, and was released in February 1985 by Virgin Records. The single went to number one on the U.S. Billboard R&B chart for one week. Frankie Knuckles Club Mix was originally released in 1992 as part of a rerelease 12” and also appeared on the Loose Ends Remix project Tighten Up Volume 1

Now included in the House Masters Frankie Knuckles collection, retrospective of the legendary house DJ, still sounds great.

Do Ya!

Purple Disco Machine add their usual brand of disco suss to reinvigorate Hercules & Love Affair’s stand-out track from The Feast of the Broken Heart LP.

Turning the house into nu-disco sheen it’s a love affair of infectious grooves.
