Going Back Home by Black Strobe

8/10 Mike 26 June 2014
Three songs on this EP here from Black Strobe, aka Arnaud Rebotini. On side A is 'Going Back Home (Extended Mix)', a curious mix of 'Introspective'-era Pet Shop Boysish synthpop and drawn out uplifting cosmic disco-house business full of funky guitars and handclaps and cheeky drum programming and bloopy synths.   If this wasn't confusing enough, on the other side he switches into rock'n'roll heart-throb mode for 'The House Of Good Lovin'', a bluesy rock'n'roll stomper with comically drawled vocals and bold Jack White riffin' in unison with an obnoxious two-note synth octave riff that slowly digs its claws into your grey matter and refuses to let go. It's gleefully unhinged in the same way that made that recent Oren Ambarchi/ZZ Top 12" so amazing.   Closer 'Tigerman' is a similar classic rock'n'roll meets synth blaster, this time it's like Jerry Lee Lewis crossed with Billy Idol or '80s Iggy Pop, closing funkily with a super cheesy synth boogie swagger that wouldn't look out of place on a Black Bananas record. This EP is all over the place stylistically but always pretty bold and unusual.
