What will the journey be this time? "Only When I'm Dancing", transports us to the golden age of disco music, when the dance floor was full of excitement, melancholy, elegance and majestic arrangements (something that Moore notably excels at).
This time, the change of sound comes with a change in singer. The angelic voice of Maddie Dobie makes way for the elegance of Luci Ashbourne. Her mature, velvety voice is perfect for these sensual songs, many of which are aimed directly at the dance floor. When Joe began working on this new album, he imagined Karen Carpenter singing along with the music of Benny and Björn.
"Never Gonna Let You Go" begins like a tribute to Barry White. "Love Has Taken Hold Of My Heart" has echoes of ABBA. Elsewhere we hear Pet Shop Boys, Bee Gees, Tina Charles and Isaac Hayes. A new album, a new surprise, a new pleasure.

Le SuperHomard's electronic pop naturally resonates with a classic French pop references including those of spiritual fathers of the electro-pop genre, Stereolab and Medhi Zannad.
The groovy electronics, the oddly meandering vocals, the elaborately gorgeous production, the super mellow acoustic guitars and simple syncopated beats, the psychedelic feeling, it's all here: It's like feeling dappled sunlight on your face as you relax.

That’s why, among other reasons, we wanted to bring back such an incredible album as a part of our collection of reissues in honor of Elefant Records’ 25th anniversary. To be able to enjoy again the perfect pop bull’s eyes that “Probabilmente”, “Bacharach” and “L’anarchica Pugliese” are, because “Vacanze A Settembre” breathes Italy with a vitality that raises even the lowest spirits, because “Je Je Jeox” and “Quando Ho Tempo” make clear all the marvelous lounge music albums Carlos Valderrama’s crew could have made, because “Se Come Te” gave us a peak at what path the group was going to take (ah, how clearly we can see things with hindsight), and for a million reasons more, many of which are tied to scenes of your lives that these songs are part of the soundtrack of. We can think of so many.
What’s more, this is the perfect opportunity to recover the two songs that were included in the now out of print “Mondo Fitness EP”. Both the title track and the “Diego Mon Amour” are further proof of the group’s nose for pop music, on the one hand, and, on the other, the melodic richness and elegance of the arrangements that FITNESS FOREVER are capable of laying out, which have undoubtedly been an important nuance in the concept of disco music that they developed on subsequent albums.
So, we’ve got an album plus two extra tracks, released on a precious transparent red vinyl, in a 300-copy numbered, limited edition. What a delight.
Thankfully The Last Detail doesn't disappoint. Breezy yet reflective. Melancholic but never maudlin, and always resolutely upbeat. Magnificent" Harvey Williams (Field Mice, Trembling Blue Stars).

Playing with a considerable number of instruments, and the participation of the Cotsworld Voices choir on many of the songs, we find ourselves with one of those albums that needs to be listened to in semi-darkness, where the notes are bursting to the surface, giving you goose bumps hair by hair.

After the demise of Tender Trap, the duo were enticed to play in public for an event celebrating their old label, Sarah Records, at the Arnolfini Art Gallery in Bristol. They played a few Heavenly songs but also took the opportunity to try out new material. From the positive reaction, they realised that two people on stage could be a proper band, if a small, fragile one. The mini-album comprises eight evocative songs, most of which are about relationships falling apart. It starts with their first single "Intravenous" a closely sung duet which talks about the mutual dependency of love, and of resignation to a closeness so extreme that it becomes destructive.
It's an album that shows off the two most remarkable facets of the songwriter: pop melodies that intertwine melancholic and evocative shades plus ambiance of experimentation in which the music becomes a bucolic, intoxicating landscape. Fans of Trembling Blue Stars will be delighted at the new songs, but there are also echoes of Mark Hollis, Labrdford, Brian Eno, and even the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. An album for a silent and solitary night.
The album opens the accelerated techno-pop of "We Are All The Lo-Fi Kids"; the girls themselves admit that "Together In Electric Dreams" was a huge influence for this album and they show it openly on the album's title track. "Shy Girl" (could have been a hit from Bananarama), while "My Imagination" is in the spirit of The Buggles, Silicon Teens, and Yazoo. Other tracks nod towards The Human League, Dolly Mixture and The Go-Go's. The album radiates excitement and a have-fun, feel-good mood. It's impossible to resist its electricity, its marvelous melodies, its punk attitude, and unforgettable choruses. We Love You!!!
