Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday Love

Chaz Bundick's electro-funk Toro Y Moi project picks a strange choice for a cover tune, Saturday Love was originally recorded by Alexander O'Neal & Cherrelle in 1985. 

Following the critically acclaimed Underneath The Pine album from earlier this year he's back again with a new EP titled Freaking Out - due September 13th. Saturday Love is the first track to surface from the new EP, being that I love the original eighties soul classic and know it word for word it's an interesting song to hear remade. Chaz changes it from a duet to a solo performance and adds the unique Toro Y Moi lush synth sound, refreshing it for a new generation. Hear the original below…

It's been a long time, I didn't think I was ever going to see you again, I see you haven't changed, it's good to see you anyway...

I've not played this for a while, as Cherelle says at the beginning, it's good to see you anyway. I was prompted to check this out again due to Toro Y Moi covering this tune on the forthcoming Freaking Out EP (Hear above). 

Saturday Love, written by the prolific writing and producing partnership of Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis was a top ten UK hit duetted by American R&B singers Cherrelle and Alexander O'Neal and released as a single back in 1985. The song appeared on Cherrelle's 1985 gold album High Priority on Tabu Records and included an extended spoken dialogue introduction skit set in a bar.

Sound Clash!

As if Gang Gang Dance were not mad enough already, here they are remixed by the world maddest genius Lee Stratch Perry. Gang Gang Dance’s excellent Eye Contact album is still getting regular airings here at Neoloop and will undoubtably make it into many albums of the year charts come December. Perry retains the much of the original album version but adds a reggae drum and bass and skanking piano riff for him to ramble his eccentric ad-libs over. It's nuts and it's been around a while, but I love it.

Remastered releases for The Jesus and Mary Chain

Since Psychocandy was first released in November 1985, The Jesus And Mary Chain's seminal debut album has received a massive amount of critical acclaim and is now widely regarded as a classic. Influenced by the likes of The Velvet Underground, The Stooges, and The Shangri-Las, brothers Jim and William Reid's milestone LP went on to influence further generations of bands, the LP also includes a young Bobby Gillespie on drums. Psychocandy is a wash with feedback distortion, fuzz and a gothic undertone, the Mary Chain's wall of noise is immense. In particular Just Like Honey, a single from the LP still sounds amazing today and nowadays it's better know for being included on the soundtrack to Sofia Coppola's Lost In Translation.

The whole JAMC catalogue - six studio albums, are to be reissued as double CD's plus DVD, including B-sides, live recordings, BBC sessions and more later this year.

Tales of the Unexpected

I used to love Tales of the Unexpected when I was a kid, specially the theme tune. The Bullitts and Passion Pit have come together and laid a vocal over there iconic instrumental theme. Makes me smile listening to this. The Bullitts have done quite a few film theme make-overs, including Taxi Theme (Bullitts main man Jeymes Samuel), The persuaders (with Roisin Murphy) and Magnum Force (with Wretch 32). Check there Facebook page for more, free to download, click here.

Balearic beauty

Love the cool breezy vibe of this new tune from Swedish Balearic pop outfit Air France, subtle steel drums weave in and out the sunshine beats. Almost sounds like a Jamie xx remix with the steal pans thrown in there, starts with a bit of Kool and the Gang in the background and ramps up to a the perfect Balearic pop. Mixed by Star Slinger.

Pascal superbe!

Another French pop tune from Pascal Parisot, I'm listening to a lot of French radio of late. Pascal (born 1963) has a definite Serge Gainsbourg sound to his voice and here it's ever apparent as he duets with his partner Fredda. Taken from the 2000 album Rumba. Love the bossa nova beats and sunshine melody.

Magnifique Monsieur

Just heard this great pop tune on French radio, not one that I've heard before but at first I thought it was Neoloop favourite Bertrand Burgalat as Chanson singer-songwriter Albin De La Simone has a very similar voice and sound. Recorded and released back in 2003 from his self-titled LP, which also turns old to be very good and has matured very well. Albin, born 1970 in Picardie, France has also worked with Vanessa Paradis, Arthur H, Pascal Parisot and Alain Souchon to name a few.

Balearic-pop to soak up the rays!

I first heard this at the end of last year, but it doesn't quite have the right vibe for a winters night. But in the hight of summer it make perfect sense. Swedish Balearic-pop duo Korallreven team up with Taken by Trees' Victoria Bergsman for this sunshine pop-sizzling groove. 

Korallreven have also just remixed Britney Spears' Till The World Ends, and it sounds good!

Here's another track from the tribute to the late-‘60s Brazilian Tropicália movement Red Hot + Rio 2 featuring various artists covering Brazilian classics. This is one of the standout tracks from the Cults collaborating with Superhuman Happiness on a cover of Um Canto De Afoxé Para O Bloco Do Ilê originally by the legendary Brazilian singer-songwriter and activist Caetano Veloso. It's a great version with a killer melody, enjoy!

The title track to I Break Horses debut LP - Hearts (on Bella Union) is a very atmospheric in a warm and fuzzy kinda way. Like a soundtrack that ebbs and flows effortlessly through your mind throwing up psychedelic colours and shapes. Fans of My Bloody Valentine and Jesus & Mary Chain et al will undoubtably love this. I certainly do.

I Break Horses Press release...

Allow us to introduce you to the world of I Break Horses, the nom de plume of Maria Lindén and her musical partner Fredrik Balck. Residing in the Swedish capital of Stockholm, the duo have quietly been crafting the nine tracks that make up debut album Hearts throughout stolen moments gathered up over the past three years.

Jay Electronica teams up with British collective The Bullitts  (AKA  Jeymes Samuel) in this French noir set short film titled, Run & Hide. ELISA LASOWSKI IN: FUIR ET SE CACHER (RUN & HIDE)

This comes off The Bullitts’ free EP, Mos Eisley. I'm loving everything the Bullitts are doing and this tune samples David Bowie to great effect. Love his old style film poster too...

The Summer has found it's soundtrack

Memory Tapes new LP - Player Piano is gonna cause a bit of a stir I think, it's a cracking follow-up from debut album, the brilliant Seeking Magic. Dayve Hawke, who is Memory Tapes finds his mojo right where he left off and creates an uplifting and beautifully constructed sound. Single, Today is Our Life is a wonderful mellow tune that springs into a bouncy upbeat sing-a-long number. The whole record has a perfect summer vibe and will soundtrack long hot sunny days effortlessly. The toe-tapping Wait in the Dark, the whirling Yes I Know, the tambourine-shaking of Sun Hits and the tabla beats of Offers all contribute to the happy feel-good soundtrack. Highly Recommended.

Retro-futurist electro-pop!

John Maus new album We Must Become The Pitiless Censors Of Ourselves is an interesting record. Heavy synth-led songs of retro-futurist electro-pop intwine a wealth of influences from The Doors, Kratfwerk and  Joy Division to Daft Punk, Jan Hammer and Giorgio Moroder. Over these freak-beat workouts and soaring synth's is Maus deep and brooding voice telling strange stories. Head For The Country is a great track, also Hey Moon and Matter of Fact are highlights. Recommened.

OK Pop music let's go!

Enjoying the new LP from Little Dragon, Shuffle A Dream is a big fat slice of electro-pop. It cuts and chops, blips and pops. Yukimi Nagano voice sounds as sweet as it ever did. After a few guest slots with Gorillaz and SBTRKT she has broadened her appeal. The album is an eclectic affair that sometimes goes beyond experimental but you can't knock them for trying out different sounds. Well worth checking out it's called Ritual Union and it out now!
