La Fleur/ John Monkman & James Monro – Speicher 108 – Kompakt Extra

Another great record to review and tell you about this week. The artist’s names you will of course be familiar with and this combination of hot talents translates itself perfectly into these brilliant productions. La Fleur’s informed nod to 90’s rave, Tears kicks things off with tough, punctuating drums underpinning an infectious series of melodically charged stabs until the vocal: washing my dreams away with tears, introduces another meaning to it all. Moody and compelling, yet funky as you like. The wonderfully titled, Pesto Punk follows by John Monkman & James Monro and the duo unleash powerful, loud synthesisers all over the stereo creating mayhem over the course of several self-defining minutes.

Release: April 19
