Anthony Mansfield - Tales From The Gulch EP

Four tracks of groovy, lo-slung and slightly leftfield nu-disco here, courtesy of Sleazy McQueen's Whiskey Disco label.

The standout is My First Mistake, a re-edit credited to V/A of an old Chi-Lites song (not that it sounds hugely like the original at all, having done away with the rather cheesy chorus). But the other three tracks – all originals – are pretty good too. Not 100% convinced by the vocal on Cosmic Annie but Most Wanted has a dark, quirky charm – think 50s girl groups by way of Blue Velvet and a fistful of noxious chemicals – while Body Fusion is sheer is a proper call to the dancefloor and no mistake, guv'nor.

If you dig that Horse Meat Disco vibe, then this will be right up your alley (and you can stop that puerile sniggering right THERE, thank you).

Out: This week

About: Actually, I say 'Sleazy McQueen's label' but before anyone comes on here to point out I've got that wrong, the hype sheet just says they're 'loosely connected to Sleazy McQueen and his assorted cohorts'. But anyway it's to Sleazy's own website I'm told you should head for more info, so there.
