Picked this one up as the sleeve is fully vibing and I get the impression they’ll be blissful Cyndi Lauper-esque ‘80s pop gems nestled comfortably in the grooves. I might be wrong but here goes...
Yeah, I was a bit wrong about that but this is sounding cool. Super lo-fi poppy oddness is definitely the order of the day. It kinda reminds me of Sam Mehran’s Outer Limits Recordings project was it more on an electronic tip. There’s a healthy dose of Ariel Pink in here too but it has loads more in common with the ghetto end of pop production ala Greatest Hits and such. Paula is the work of TOPS (you remember the excellent ‘Tender Opposites’ LP right?) man David Carriere btw. He knows his shit.
‘Relaxed Fit’ sounds both contemporary and ultra retro in equal measure so if you want super upbeat and outgoing pop that sounds like it was recorded at home for about a quid then you should definitely give this a spin. As Grimes proudly proclaims in the press release...“David taught me to love pop music. I make pop music because of David”.
