THE ALLERGIES feat. ANDY COOPER: ‘I Just Got That Feeling’ video

THE ALLERGIES feat. ANDY COOPER: 'I Just Got That Feeling' videoJust out, it’s the new video for Andy Cooper-featuring track, I Just Got That Feeling, off latest Allergies album – the excellent Say The Word.¬† Probably the most serious track of the set, said cut provides a mid-LP moment of introspection and reflection amid the bubblegum breakbeat thrills, recalling material from Audacity-era Ugly Duckling. “Sometimes I stand in front of the mirror

THE ALLERGIES: Let Them Know (feat. THE CUBAN BROTHERS) b/w Lightning In A Bottle (feat. ANDY C)(Vinyl 7″)

THE ALLERGIES:  Let Them Know (feat. THE CUBAN BROTHERS)Say hello to The Allergies ‘lil friend’ – new dancefloor weapon and single, Let Them Know,¬†featuring Los Hermanos Cubanos a.k.a. a certain now-legendary Scots outfit. Could this be the record that sees our boys crash the mainstream party? It’s got to be on the cards, what with five years of Radio 6 and then 2 plaudits, all manner of TV-tie-in syncs and praise

SMOOVE & TURRELL: It Ain’t Working + Live video

SMOOVE & TURRELL: It Ain't Working + Live videoIt Ain’t Working is the third single to be lifted from Smoove & Turrell’s forthcoming new LP with the 80s after-shave referencing title of Stratos Bleu. What ain’t working though? Porter’s new parka? The new 80s-influenced boogie/ analogue electronica direction? Smoove’s maracas? Wash your mouth out! The title must surely be a reference to the properties of a certain legendary

SMOOVE & TURRELL: Fade Away

SMOOVE & TURRELL: Fade AwaySmoove & Turrell look once again to the eighties for influences on Fade Away, the second single to be taken from their forthcoming Stratos Bleu album. All the signs are that the LP appears to owe its name to legendary 80s aftershave Blue Stratos – ironic in this instance really because the smell of that certainly didn’t fade away. But I digress. What you can expect this time is a

THE ALLERGIES: Felony/ Rile ‘Em Up (feat. ANDY COOPER & MARIETTA SMITH)(Vinyl 7″)

THE ALLERGIES: Felony/ Rile 'Em Up (feat. ANDY COOPER & MARIETTA SMITH)(Vinyl 7Rating: ★★★★★ New Allergies LP Say The Word drops later this year but it would be tantamount to a felony for them to leave you till then without any new material. Which is why they’re all set to rile you up with a new vinyl 45 out today entitled – er – Felony and backed with the Andy Cooper and Marietta Smith-featuring Rile ‘Em Up. The former is the result of the boys having co-opted another

DR RUBBERFUNK: My Life At 45 (Vinyl LP)

DR RUBBERFUNK:  My Life At 45 (Vinyl LP)If you’ve been awake over the last eight months, you’ll know Jalapeno stalwart, Dr Rubberfunk, has been dropping a series of hot vinyl 7s every couple of months entitled My Life At 45 – each featuring a couple of nuggets from the good Dr’s studio plus a bonus beats type cut. What better plan next than to assemble all the tracks (sans bonus beat cuts) together on vinyl LP? That means a second chance

SMOOVE & TURRELL: Do It + video

SMOOVE & TURRELL: Do It + videoHeads up everyone, it’s time for a new single from Smoove & Turrell, which goes by the catch-all double entendre title of Do It. Said cut takes the form of classic S&T 125 bpm 80s disco soul and features more slap bass than Mark King and Flea going head-to-head in a bass-slapping competition on the planet Larry Graham. Meanwhile Turrell belts out the hook, “Come on and do it (Do It!)/

IZO FITZROY: Blind Faith

IZO FITZROY: Blind FaithIzo FitzRoy’s back with new disco-soul single Blind Faith – the third to be taken from her forthcoming album How The Mighty Fall. Turns out it’s neither a commemoration of a certain late sixties supergroup nor a comment on the government’s Brexit strategy but a meditation on giving relationships another go when they haven’t been quite what they should. Helping her along on this

FLEVANS feat. LAURA VANE: Mr Right

FLEVANS feat. LAURA VANE: Mr RightTeaming up once more with soul songstress Laura Vane, it’s Flevans toting the positively Prince-channeling new single Mr Right. Is that ‘head voice’ or ‘female falsetto’ Vane’s employing? Frankly you won’t care as you’ll be sucked into the groove before you can say, ‘fat bass, slap bass, rhythm guitar and sax.’ What you going to pair that with Mr F? A pumping slice of uptempo Latin

DR RUBBERFUNK: My Life At 45 (Part 3) (Vinyl 7″)

DR RUBBERFUNK: My Life At 45 Part 3Dr Rubberfunk continues his run of My Life At 45 – er – 45s – with My Life At 45 Part 3 then. Surely he must be forty-six by now though because Part 1 came out in July 2018 didn’t it? What’s that? Oh rrrright – I’ve got you – well – I didn’t think he’d mind since he’s made his age part of the title! Erm anyway – so Dr Rubberfunk is still a very youthful 45 and this one’s lead cut is the wistful (not to
