Contact, Love, Want, Hate reminds me a lot of the sonic experiments Coldcut did back in the early 90s.
It’s a great record for putting on if you’re feeling dreamy
Its equal parts weird and bloody obvious: like looking through a fisheye lens.
There are other moments where a grander, more mainstream sound is evoked.
Quite why I keep thinking of Oliver Postgate is anyone’s guess.
I have to say that I was completely taken aback at how good the Rose Eleanor Dougall track is.
regardless of the styling, the energy and spirit bursting through this record is really something to hear.
Great stuff, could easily be one of the records of this year.
Grey Oceans is a very melancholy record indeed, though there are flashes of abandon and fun.
