Sinking Into A Miracle

Amor are a Glasgow-based dance outfit. Their eclectic line-up bleeds eclecticism into their music, however. The band consist of avant-garde musician Richard Youngs, Turner Prize nominee Luke Fowler, Paul Thompson who played drums with Franz Ferdinand and Norwegian minimalist composer Michael Francis Duch. Their debut album, Sinking Into A Miracle, was recorded at Chem 19 in Glasgow, the place where all those Delgados and Arab Strap records were made and produced by Paul Savage and Richard McMaster of Golden Teacher. LP and CD on Night School.

Higher Moment / Amnesia

AMOR is the Glaswegian live disco group that most notably (surprisingly?) features Richard Youngs, with the rest of the outfit being made up of Luke Fowler, Paul Thomson and the double-bass-playing Michael France Duch. Higher Moment / Amnesia is fantastic stuff, with elastic double bass twisting itself around piano, Youngs’ ecstatic vocals, and a dead-on rhythm. 12” on Night School.

Paradise / In Love An Arc

AMOR’s debut release Paradise / In Love An Arc impersonates a vintage disco single, but what lies within its grooves are just a little stranger than you might expect. AMOR is the four-way team-up of Richard Youngs, Luke Fowler, Michael Francis Duch and Paul Thomson, and as with anything Youngs-related, it gets a little strange whilst also retaining a crucial playfulness. Radical group-constructed avant-disco on Night School!
