About this item

After freaking us out with that body working Ruski-rap cut on Very Soviet Cut Outs last year, Schmoltz drops by the Bahnsteig bunker with a pair of leftfield grooves for the dopers and dancers. "Ze Sky Iz Blu" saunters out the speakers with unbuttoned shirt, louche as you like and totally unfazed. A dubby post punk bassline and steady drum programming make the perfect foundation for stoned coastal guitars, sultry vocals and breathy harmonica, as we're taken on the kind of saucer eyed trip you'd enjoy after too much San Pedro cactus. When I remake Natural Born Killers, this one's going on the soundtrack. Flip the disc and keep on dancing, Schmoltz treats us to a totally unknown groove assault that's quirkier than Matt Ward's dress sense. Dancing footloose and fancy free to disco-not-disco drums, white funk guitars and soulful piano chords, "Die Mne Piau" is some E-bloc meets 80s New York madness and I cannot get enough of it. Tanz tanz tanz!
