About this item

Here's a new EP from Pender Street Steppers, Vancouver's hottest house exports and one of the poster boys for the Riviera's iconic Mood Hut label. Thankfully, they're not ready to switch up the formula juuust yet, as that natural drum kit (think Jack J's "Something On My Mind"), airy synth-flute, sweeping pads and gorgeous atmospheres all make a welcome return across five brand new tracks. There's joyfully picked guitar lines, squelchy analogue elements, and hazy, celestial washes - but the whole thing is undeniably PSS! It's nice to see the inclusion of some more experimental bits ("Mirror (Dub)") as well as them offer up some content to the recent converts of all things electro-funk and street soul related, thru the intimate and heartfelt licks of "No Need". Another Mood Hut essential? Youbetcha. The only thing you'll need to keep warm of the Winter months.... Imperative.


Matt says: Sure to get enough hype via the blogosphere and similiar information streams, but for once it's rightly deserved. Possibly their strongest release to date. And that's sayin summat.
