Even arriving at their 82nd release, PPU continue to conjure up weird, wonderful and wonky grooves, this time round from everyone's favourite femme fatale, Maryn E. Coote. After sharing the spotlight with her son Uku on PPU-061, Maryn takes center stage here with a ten track set of previously unreleased studio recordings, out-takes, demos and new material. Switching between funk, RnB, synth-pop, minimal wave and tape worn boogie (that's just on opening cut "Dreamboy - Reserva"), the set is as far from the predictable plod of the mainstream as you could possibly get. For instance, the blissed out Balearic jazz of "I Don't Have To Cry" sees the Estonian-Swedish singer/songwriter welcoming us into her boudoir with whistle-wetting cocktail before the Paisley power of "Emotion" dominates the dark-room in proper S&M fashion. Maryn has dedicated this album to her son Uku, who has been living with A.L.S. for several years now. The sale of this album will directy support his care, and support further research on the disease.
STAFF COMMENTSPatrick says: Fully batshit boogie/funk/synth-pop weirdness from the wonderful Maryn E. Coote - who leaves us in no doubt where her son Uku got his groove from! Curio of the week!
