Disco 2008

I'm getting really excited by this band. Hercules and Love Affair (see yesterday's post) have had a fantastic review of their brand new eponymous album in today's Observer Music Monthly. Go and enjoy here. It's interesting to see disco revisited in 2008. H&LA's version is a more tribal clubbier affair with Andy Butler's synth pop influences of Soft Cell and Depeche Mode thrown in for good measure. Forget the cheesy side of the genre and try these two as an example of Hercules and Love Affair's rootz...

I.O.U. (12" Version) - Freeez (zShare)

Juicy Friut (12" Version) - Mtume (zShare)

And have a wander over to RetroWonderland for more of the same fab old school club shizzle.

The Observer Music Monthly
is a great mag which until now, I never knew had an online version. Clicky here for a value-packed bookmark.
