8/10 Laurie Staff review, 19 August 2014

This one just oozes German cool. A duo of classic krauty electropop from what appear to be 2 new bands on London's Deep Distance recordings, this little orange disc's sides are nicely matched. Traversing a forgotten world of stripped-down synth lines and 808 groove, Berlin's Hinterhof kicks this 7" off with a driving 4/4 beat almost throughout with a droney bleep accompaniment. Keeping it simple allow the rhythms to take centre stage, until Lollie Barr krafts a robotic vocal which shakily falls apart every now and then thanks to some tasteful choppy edits.

On the flip, we return to England with Play For Today delivering a dingier slice of electronica. A slightly more broken groove sits behind a small orchestra of detuned analog warmth, occasionally bringing to mind the textures of Ceephax or Luke Abbott but with a more subtle foreboding tone. The larger approach to synth arrangement and darker sound provides a good counterpoint to the more energetic A side, all combined into a lovely technicolour sleeve, forming a well-rounded single package.
