- Impossible Love by The Chemistry Set

The new Chemistry Set single is the first release on the new Fruits de Mer offshoot label Regal Crabmophone, and it's an interesting one. Apparently these guys are old Peel faves who've recently reformed with an updated sound. The A-side is a six-minute indie-psych number called Impossible Love. I believe the style of music I'm experiencing here is what used to be known as "baggy". You know, The Farm, Happy Mondays and the like. That's very much the groove they're hitting here, and they're hitting it for a long, long time, with the A-side clocking in at six minutes. It's hugely catchy and there's a girl doing some backing vocals and it's all very radio, and if I have a complaint here it's that it sounds kind of overproduced in that slick '90s way, but for all I know that's exactly the aesthetic they're aiming for. If so, job well done. On the flip we've got a take on We Luv You by the Stones in similar baggy style. If you're nostalgic for that era, look no further.

Paul Weller's 'Sunflower' meets Primal Scream's 'Higher Than The Sun' meets The Stone Roses meets The Real People. Nice one!
