SLOW CLUB – COMPLETE SURRENDER (Pop – UK)

Slow Club
Slow Club is Sheffield boy-girl duo Charles Watson (guitar, vocals, piano) and Rebecca Taylor (drums, vocals, guitar). Created in 2005, the band signed with Moshi Moshi Records and released their debut album Yeah So in 2009.

In 2014 they produced their most ambitious and complete record yet, Complete Surrender, touching on everything from Motown to the immaculately produced pop of the 1970s. Equally influenced by Frankie Valli and David Bowie the album sounded like an instant classic, something so familiar and timeless it’s difficult to believe it wasn’t recorded 30 years ago.

HOLY GHOST! – CRIME CUTZ (Electro/Funk – US)

Holy Ghost!

Three years ago, Brooklyn disco duo Holy Ghost! released their sophomore album Dynamics and they are finally back with a new EP, Crime Cutz, to be released on April 29 via DFA. You have to give it to Nick Millhiser and Alex Frankel for bringing back the unadulterated beats of the 80s with ambition and undeniable mastery.

The title track to the upcoming EP, which was premiered on Zane Lowe’s Beats1 show, is a seven-minute super funky jam featuring retro synths and incredibly fresh hooks. It gradually builds up to an electrifying crescendo before winding down to a blissful close. A real pop tour de force!

The band is currently touring Australia and will be back in NYC for a live performance at MoMA’s Armory Party in March. More info on their website or Facebook. Buy the music on
