Duchess Says - Ccut up

One of those albums you sit on for months for no real reason. The first time you stuck it on, abrasion was not what your ears were in the mood for. Maybe I was listening to Noah & The Whale. I needed to hold my breath and power through all the way to the end of Anthologies des 3 Perchoirs. The above track is the bastard child of Metronomy's You Could Easily Have Me as conceived in an alleyway next to Les Foufounes Electriques in Montréal.

Back track a bit further. I got handed the album last summer by the guy working in Platine, a record store in Old Quebec. I was after more Malajube but they had nothing new or old. This ticks all the boxes though. They play fucking hard which is great for blowing the hungover cobwebs away. The dealmaker is the subtlety of the electronics though, they offset the aggression teasing you with dreams of discos doused in dry ice. This lot describe themselves as moog rock. Figures. DFA79 springs to mind. Only, only because it makes me want to scream and shout and windmill as I get my groove on, surfing on a sea of white noise. I can't windmill. Last time I tried the blood went to my head and I fell down.

Duchess Says - Black Flag (The Juan Maclean Version)

The other DFA come to mind also. The vocals sent hurtling to the front of the congregation, which could reside, judging by the imagery of knees and rosaries, in a church as well as a dancefloor.

A new EP is out in the UK / Europe on 10" vinyl via Back Yard Recordings.
