- Turritopsis Blues by Led Er Est
I have to admit my ignorance here and say this is the first Led Er Est record I'm aware of listening to. Yeah, I know they've been going for a while but it's hard to listen to everything. The opening track's totally awesome techno-leaning electronic type stuff. There's a weird thin, scratchy melodic guitar line that sounds fucking ace over simple drifty synth melodies and a few Plaid-esque clicky microbeats. Really tasteful and cool. I really could listen to this all day.
Then there's a weird little interlude thing with some radio static and stuff, and then there's a murkier bit of echoey malevolence that sounds like it's taken some cues from early '90s Tresor-style techno which goes on for the remainder of this one-sider. It's pretty different to the first track but the hypnotic, subtle, creepy vibes and reverby beats sound fucking great to me. These two tracks are both respectable but it's that fresh-sounding opener with its crazy thin guitar fuzz which ramps this up to essential purchase status. Oh, also, with it being one-sided there's a totally mental bright yellow screenprint on the other side so it looks super rad too. What are you waiting for?

This 2 tracker is astonishing. The stunning lead track sounds at it's best pitched up to the max on 33 and resembles the dystopian electro sound of classic D' Arcangelo with one one of those wonderful wiry gothic ascending/descending guitar hooks that stick in the brain for hours afterwards. The other number has a beautiful melancholia to it also - all-in-all a moody slice of vinyl, very cerebral, very cool!
