The fantastic Metronomy are due to release their third LP The English Riviera on Monday (11th April) on French label Because Music (home to Moby,Faithless, Ed Banger as well Amadou and Mariam to name a few) and the general consenus is that it’s one of the records of the year. I’ll post a review I did for The Line Of Best Fit on here come next week.
It came to my attention whilst listening to the alluring ‘The Look’ that another song far removed from this continent by a Brazilian singer Rita Lee affectionely known as “Queen Of Rock” in her homeland. Her song ‘Luca Perfume’ has a similar synth groove to the organ refrain on the bands new single. Albeit at a remarkably languid pace.
Listen to the two below.
