Heavy Legs / Under A Hollow Moon

Mysterious U.S. production crew Image Club land at Peaking Lights' Two Flowers Records for a two tracker of percussion heavy club freakers. Seconds into the conga meets acid meets autoharp of "Heavy Legs" and the idea that this may have more than a little to do with Aaron Coyes appears fully formed in your brain box. The synthetic soundscape coupled with the odd touch of dub are right in line with those psychedelic dancers Aaron dropped as APC and Leisure Connection. It's heady stuff from the start, but once the staccatto bleep-rest emerges from the general swirl you'll be totally tripped in your club-space of choice. Meanwhile on the flip, "Under A Hollow Moon" is a muscular shoulder roller with tightly wound toms, rubberized bass sounds and chiming keys a plenty. Imagine stepping into a Detroit warehouse only to find yourself on some tropical sands, that's the feeling here; confusion, but not disappointment.

Patrick says: Image Club deliver exactly what you'd expect from a Peaking Lights associated dance 12", namely a totally trippy, semi tropical, and solely synthetic voyage into the unknown. Belting stuff.

It's the return of Piccadilly's favourite tropical-psychedelic-house-reggae-disco-don (phew!) : PEAKING LIGHTS! There ain't much ol' Aaron Coyes can't do - maybe slamming gabba and country? - but I'm not ruling them out either yet. Anyway, there's a lot of excitement around this release due to two reasons. 1) It features American actress Chloë Sevigny and 2) The instrumental was personally requested by DJ Harvey's crew for the DJ overlord's extended use. The vocal version features Chloë Sevigny with a beautiful melancholic yet powerful chant to Saint Therese, an alchemical figure who’s words 'What matters in life is not great deeds but great love' ring true through time. Peaking Lights' production is a playfully psychedelic mid tempo love jam with a lot of groove. On the flip is "Conga Blue" (again with instrumental). An upbeat weirdo disco cut laying it down at 120bpm with some dreamy vocals with a catchy line 'through dark and doom can flowers bloom?'. As the solid rhythm section holds it together and melodies float by, the clav and synths ride the groove with aplomb. Sure to soundtrack many a feel-good moment of the sunnier months of the year, grab some early glow now and get those vitamin D levels up well in advance.
