CABBAGE

Joe Cleen fires off his second EP in quick succession following a very well received twelve for SlothBoogie. He's back with more zany disco-house flavours, kicking off with the manic, cue-point looping madness of "Show Me Your Dimension" which sounds like Theo Parrish recording with DJ Falcon on bucket loads of amphetamines. "And This Is" deploys a rich, soulful deep house gem; littered with spoken word snips and decorated beautifully with horns, guitar and keys and would go down a storm at the infamous Body & Soul sessions.

"We Need" skillfully pairs exotic synth textures with a bass heavy beat, adding jarring piano chords later on in the mix and constructing an addictive yet slightly melancholic electronic house masterpiece in the process.

Ultimately, it's down to dance maverick Glenn Astro to close proceedings. The current hot property adds a touch of playful deepness and strung out grit, transforming "We Need" into a late night, acidic burner that should smolder away quite nicely in any function space. Sterling stuff!


Cabbage have finally released their highly anticipated debut album, following on from a trio of EP's, released under the delightfully tactful 'Young, Dumb & Full Of...' (Rum, I assume.) 

We start off with the thrashing garage rock of 'Preach To The Converted' with twanging distorted guitar and the sort of snarling vocals you could imagine being venemously spat from the edge of the stage before launching into the fuzzy off-kilter rock of Arms of Pleonexia, reminiscent of a younger Ty Segall swagging around the stage before a baying croud after one too many bottles of corner-shop white lightning. Things continue at this frenetic pace with 'Molotov Alcopop' providing a bit of nuanced rhythm before the gothic rock of 'Disinfect Us' suggests a more mature suite of influences, from the militant march and languid blues overtones of early White Stripes. 

Further on, we get syncopated guitars over a meandering drum machine on the brilliantly swaying 'Pendurabo' and jangling hazy indie, topped with a curiously (but effectively) distorted vocal affectation over the top. 

Brilliantly varied, but held together with a persistent narrative thread, 'Nihilistic Glamour Shots' lives up to the hype of the earlier 3 EP's, with a willingnes to experiment but a knowing nod to all of their numerous influences. 

STAFF COMMENTS

Barry says: Thrashing garage rock, thudding post-punk and jagged riffage all round, Cabbage manage to surpass their excellent musical form with a well-heeled and cleverly written debut.

The wonderfully titled Jazz Cabbage return with a brand new recruit - Daisuku Kondo from Okayama in Japan. After spending his teenage years playing bass in local psychedelic bands, Daisuke found his calling through Detroit's soulful house sound, and delivers here a well rounded and punchy, deep house EP with distinctive jazzy harmonies & intricate percussion nuances. The three OGs across the record tip their hat to pioneers like Andres and Theo with warmth, texture and emotion taking centre stage through three mid-tempo house burners.

On the flip is French broken beat Don Kaffe Crème doing what he does best - a pump and jerk refix with pitch mangled vox, mangled beats and piercing keys - not a million miles away from the Money $ex blueprint and loosing none of that outdoor, carnival flavour. Excellent stuff here. 


Cabbage’s Record Store Day release, a double vinyl compilation of their first 3 EPs entitled 'Young, Dumb & Full Of…’, was one of the days most in-demand releases, with all 1000 copies selling out in hours. 'The Extended Play of Cruelty' is the latest offering from the bro-punk outfit. The band recently signed to Infectious Music (Alt-J, Drenge, Albert Hammond Jr, Leftfield, DMA'S).
