The Life Parochial by Automatic Tasty

Bouncy Irish-origin funky electronic action here from Automatic Tasty, who lashes his grooves with generous quantities of acid, baby. Lots of attention has been paid to the melodies and the texture here, as well as to the groove. The Life Parochial is pressed to 12” of wax and released by the Central Processing Unit label.

Automatic Tasty is presumably a reference to the synthesised, hot sizzling funky house things that are contained within Irish producer Jonny Dillon’s music. Jazzy chords are played by electro synths while chopped grooves strut at an even pace, mimicking your best badass walk, but doing so better than you ever could. They’re not overblown in their funkiness, nothing is making a huge irritating statement, just little nudges of acid bass on the edge of 303 screech. It sort of reminds me of Galaxians just a little more straight-up, with the cheese not nearly as pongy. Medium electrofunk cheese?

Sort of has crossovers with the nu-disco of Todd Terje and Lindstrom etc. There isn’t a whole lot of variation across the disc but there doesn’t need to be when the only mode is DANCE. MOVE. BOOGIE. ‘The Parish Hotline’ is a highlight; that repeated high synth 7th chord thing got Joan moving mid-pack, and she usually only moshes to the heaviest black metal. Oh also the last track is a big shoutout to Benn Jordan and the Chicago acid crew.
