LEXSOUL DANCEMACHINE:  Lazy BreezeBilled as ‘Balearic funk,’ the new single from Estonian funk beasts Lexsoul Dancemachine¬† is entitled Lazy Breeze and appears to be the sequel to April single Pigeon Pit which resurrected the ‘yacht soul’ slow-jam from the 80s. But why draw such a conclusion, when the last one was billed as being by the band’s alter-ego Lexsoul? Let’s consider the evidence. One, the PR for this says it, ‘anticipates their upcoming EP’ – and the name of said EP is, (what else?), Lex On The Beach. Two, this one comes with a retro 80s video that Level 42 would have been proud of. Three, it features a more than half a minute long ‘yacht rock’ solo. The case for the prosecution rests m’lud. Socks off, don loafers, swap that shirt for a t-shirt under your sharkskin suit jacket and let’s roll up those sleeves. Take it away LD!
