As has previously been noted, on opening the wrapping it always comes as something of a dip in to a box of Bassetts Liquorice allsorts as to what will emerge and their latest track takes the duo on to yet another different trajectory to material previously featured.

Iin keeping with what, as I type, is an overcast, gloomy day, Fear And Loathing compliments the brooding half-light outside.

There is a drifting cloud of electronica which slowly fills the room with a portent of claps of thunder and sparks of lightning to follow, accompanying the contrasting expanding and contracting synthesised vocal which measures, one moment up beat melodic flows the next ominous monotone menace.

Fear and Loathing – Single – King Catcher is available on iTunes.*

On each occasion I become aware of new material by King Catcher the feeling is similar to turning out the light to dress while randomly plucking items of clothing from the rails of a fancy-dress shop and on each occasion being delighted by the wacky wardrobe, which may be bright and spangly, tight and dayglo or smooth and muted.

This time around – the attire is of flared trousers, tailored suit-coat and neon baseball boots as Do You Like It? stretches through the room in wave of sartorial elegance prior to dissolving in to a number inviting the listener to step on to the under-lighting of the dance-floor and groove away the day.

Yourself, what about you, Do You Like It?.

Do You Like It? – Single – King Catcher is available on iTunes.*

King Catcher – Down Down Down – Single Review

The latest song to be released by the English duo King Catcher, which was revealed on the 25th, is the glitch-wave Down Down Down.

There is a retrospective air to Down Down Down which draws sap from the rootstock of ’70s hiphop whilst winding down the pace to give the song a distinctive spot, not only in their own catalogue, but also in the current lexicon of the rise of reformation disco, which is their more usual specific gravity.

No matter how many times you play the song each run through will catch you discombobulated by the variation of expansion and compression at the end of each of the bars which gives the track a slightly unsettling tempo, that draws the audience to just – check again.

Down Down Down is available on Amazon.*

CEEM – I Can’t Get Enough – Single Review

CEEM is a nu-disco creator from the USA.

The audience, on hitting play, on the latest release I Can’t Get Enough, which is available on bandcamp, is immediately minded of King Catcher with its introspective coiling that only reluctantly emerges from the speakers, prior to slithering across the floor in ever greater impressive soundscape which invites the audience to accompany the fluid flow of the music.

I am always drawn, in my imagination to a hungry boa-constrictor on hearing nu-disco, as from its timidness and fragility in surfacing from the shadows develops a munificence of enticing beauty which finally resolves to satiate its needs and recedes as a stocky well fed brute, disporting, of immense strength.

King Catcher – 15 Miles From Nowhere – Audio

The English nu-disco duo King Catcher revealed their newest single – 15 Miles From Nowhere – less than a couple of hours ago.

King Catcher - Fifteen Miles From Nowhere

King Catcher

15 Miles From Nowhere finds King Catcher moving back to their more regular territory of nu-disco as opposed to the down-tempo last track featured The One Who Makes It Real, though, perhaps due to that interjection have, in the newest song, infused a greater layering of texture and tempo variation than earlier material, which affords the natural instrumentation particularly drum, to catch greater sunlight.

15 Miles from Nowhere – Single – King Catcher is available on iTunes.*
