A long wait since the 7" of 'Autovia', so much so that I can't quite suss out whether Arthur & Martha have re-recorded that classic slice of pulsating motorik pop genius for 'Navigation', their debut album. Former Saloon member Adam & the lovely Alice Hubley make a dynamite match, her girl-next-door vocal style totally suiting their hugely authentic Kraftwerkian electronica, swirling Factory inspired tunes & warm 80's flecked electro pop. 'Kasparov' changes tack slightly, a heartfelt tribute to the likes of The Field Mice and The Wake, Adam's lead vocal here reminding me of the Sarah glory days, the folkse-y guitars mingling beautifully with some humble electronic flecks & an effortless drum machine, that classic glacial keyboard acts like a velvet drape swooping all over the tune & a quiet scratchy guitar motors in half way whilst the bassline makes me wanna cry. A total beaut! They've constructed a really diverse album, taking in quite hardy, familiar sounds from years gone by & forging fresh, durable, feisty songs that stick in your head like audio glue, putting a smile on this man's face for ooooh, maybe the second time this week! It's a wonderful journey, spanning decades of inspiration, largely built around analogue-soaked cool European anthems whilst simultaneously offering up some sturdy, modern dancefloor friendly action with remarkable finesse. Get this, it's a total winner!
