Various - From The Stars Vol 1

Another month, another compilation from the Nang stables. It's hard to keep up. This one's a bit different, though, cos while it features the usual Nang suspects – Bottin, Architeq Love Supreme, Sare Haviclek – there's a sci-fi theme throughout. The tracks are all called things like V, Space 1999 and Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy.

As you'd expect, a lot of the tracks have a slightly more filmic, soundscape-y feel than normal, but otherwise it's pretty much business as usual, and you surely know by now if Nang's particular take on nu-disco – synth-led, inspired by Krautrock and ’80s Italo, and bordering on the proggy at times – is your cuppa tea or not*. Assuming it is, though, there's plenty to keep you interested here, with Ichisan & Nakova's groovy Space 1999 being particularly worthy of mention.

Out: Now

Why do anarchists drink chai? Because proper tea is theft!
