Hit of the week: PVA “Divine Intervention”

The London trio PVA brings together musicians Ella Harris, Josh Baxter, and Louis Satchell in service of danceable art-school pop music combining bits of disco, house, synthpop, new wave, dance-punk, et al. Their latest jam, “Divine Intervention,” is arriving via super-producer Dan Carey’s ever-reliable Speedy Wunderground label (which previously brought us Black Midi, Squid, and Black Country, New Road among others) with production by Carey himself. According to label co-runner Pierre Hall, “It reminds me of Patti Smith fronting Factory Floor,” which is pretty spot-on. The wheel is not being reinvented here, but man is it spinning. Listen below.

Hit of the week: Lazarus Kane ‘Narcissus’

Lazarus Kane, the latest musical alchemist to bend the scope of genres to create a truly eclectic sound. His debut single Narcissus, the first taste of an artist signed to the Speedy Wunderground label, the people responsible for bringing us the likes of Squid, Black Midi and Black Country, New Road. The key themes between the artists being a focus on ground-breaking, unconventional and at times downright weird music.

“Narcissus” is a wonderfully disco-drenched number with the soulful cocksure vibe of Prince, but hemmed beautifully with a Primal Scream edge. There’s a wonderful magnetic intimacy from Lazarus Kane that ropes you in but somehow keeps you at arm’s length for the track’s duration.

La inquietant foscor de FEWS

El más recientemente y feliz descubrimiento del universo indie es la banda  americano-sueca FEWS, especializada en  motorikv propulsado y noise-pop. No muchas bandas se atreverían a lanzar un tema de 8 minutazos de psych kraut para su debut ill, que fue descrito por The Times como una reunión de  con The Jesus & Mary Chain.
2015 ha sido sin duda un año increíble para la banda; comenzó con una invitación para acompañar en directo a Ghostpoet, para entrar después en el  estudio al productor Dan Carey (Bat For Lashes / Sexwitch, Kate Tempest,  Toy) quien publicó su single de debut ill,  en su sello Speedy Wunderground. Consolidando aún más la relación, Carey ha producido su álbum de debut,  que se publicará en algún momento de este 2016 en Play It Again Sam. Esta noche en Razzmatazz.
