The Scottish nu-disco trio Park Planet are still working towards the release of the LP Rebel Rebel.
Given the history of my relationship with Park Planet since 2012, I can safely say they keep a diary as poorly as I. The most recent email to which I responded, just a few moments ago was one from April 2015. But none of that matters as creating music is what they are good at doing and most recently to surface was the track We Can’t Stop You.
In theory the LP Rebel Rebel will be released this year, however even they are doubtful of this idea and although this is stated as the second track track to be revealed from the LP, which may well have changed its name by the time of its arrival, do bear in mind this is in principal the third track from the album I have featured that reference to it – with the first indication of the new LP and the track – Dropping It – having been introduced back in 2015. Which makes their conundrums all the more a pleasure.
My advice however is to always enjoy new tracks as they arise, as they are always worth holding close the the chest.
To rewrite that introductory paragraph again – We Can’t Stop You – which may on may not be an on LP, that may not ever be released, that may or may not end up being called Rebel Rebel. Turn down all other noises and immerse yourself in the just over three and a half minutes of hip snaking music.
Music is often about timing and the US nu-disco duo The News with the track Young, released within the past four hours, hits the sweet-spot.
Warm enough to begin a Friday dusk with gentle flow, without already closing down Monday morning dawn – Young evokes of a coming forty eight hours of stress free promise, whilst not getting ahead of itself and over assuring.
Subtle brushes of synthetics sweep the room in gentle embrace whilst layered vocals caution of impulsive reaction, without overbearing the listener, as within the hush of the just under three minutes composition is a temptation of tenderness and connection, tempering any remaining solipsism in the audience whilst ascribing of mutual respect and consideration.
As you know music you like is never a science rather a purely moment in time concept and I can think of far more reasons of why I don’t like nu-disco than why I do – however as regular readers know I am drawn like a magnet to the style and Sexy Levels – in what is an atypical move jettison their more usual sequenced guitars to deliver an electronic number in #SUICIDESAUCE.
The English nu-disco duo King Catcher have surfaced with a new track.
Golden Planchette features their signature pivoting electronica which gives the material its sense of joint articulation and pulls the listener closer to the speakers.
With a growing list of stand alone singles behind them, I am hoping King Catcher will soon reveal a collection of songs in one release as this is music which is best enjoyed whilst snaking hips under strobed lights in extended play.
The Scottish nu-disco trio Park Planet are finalising details for the LP Rebel Rebel.
Park Planet – Rebel Rebel – artwork
A band who have featured on the site from time to time since their introduction in 2012. Over the years their style has evolved and the newest track – Collisions – finds them delivering a piece which will have a natural home at an after-party.
A while in gestation, the album Rebel Rebel was signposted over a year ago, with Collisions being the first composition to come from the LP. On the basis of the latest song -I reconfirm what I said in September 2015 – I look forward to hearing the full release.
