Hailing from the small Scottish fishing town of Oban, Colin Bailey fashions a quirksome brand of electronic pop, sounding like a slightly deranged Calvin Harris on lead track 'I Can't Dance'. Already finding favour with Mary-Anne Hobbs, Bailey's clearly onto something with his unique bedroom disco. These five tracks serve as a precursor to the forthcoming Kid Twist album, which apparently is being overseen by none other than Howie B. It sounds like Bailey's doing pretty well on his own though, with angular, slow jams like 'Calculator' tapping into the Hot Chip zeitgeist and the sheeny, Solvent-style electro of 'Canada Day' making for exceedingly likeable EP fodder. Possibly the most interesting thing here though, is final track 'Ah Oo Ee You You' an atmospheric, glitchy piece of programming that sounds ever so slightly like Air (if they were fronted by a Speak & Spell).
The Brazilian metal outfit teaches a lesson in exemplary thrash, delivering palm-mute chugging, dexterous fretwork, and infuriated-but-intelligible vocals on every song Bandcamp Album of the Day Jan 21, 2021
