Hotflush Recordings / Released November 2011
What does it sound like?
Hotflush duo Sepalcure remind us all how surprising it is that they’re only just releasing a debut album, despite having seemed to be everywhere for more than a little while, by offering a taster of the forthcoming LP. The title track boasts new-school “it’s fast, but it’s slow” stylings abound, complete with filtered vocal cries and an early rave-house sounding analogue hook, all set to a neat shuffle beat tempo. Flip it to find I’m Alright, a lighter, more soulful number made up of warm organ melodies flying off into synth stabs, occasional padded kicks, and garage-y lyrical arrangements. A fresh double-header to say the least.
Where would I dance to it?
Nights wherein people don’t crave four fours.
What highlights can I expect to hear?
It might be the darker nights and impending duvet mornings, but the summery vibes on I’m Alright do the do for us.
Why should I pay for it?
Where can I buy it?
