Rene Beer – Leaving Memories
It's a three-track affair. Leaving Memories itself is a lively little pulser in its original form: it's the kind of dark, sinuous groove you associate with Steve Lawler, only without going OTT on the drums. The Kephee Remix of the same brings a little more light, boasting some cool sounds that say "vintage NY/NJ style" to me without descending into mere pastiche, while finally bonus cut Broken Heart is a notch more techno-fied perhaps but just as groovy.
I'll be brutally honest, sometimes Zipped – much as I appreciate their support for TIWWD, which has been unflagging! – can go a little too experimental/abstract for me. But when they get it right, they get it oh-so-right and this time out, I'm happy to say, they get it very right indeed.
Out: This week
