Phil Manzanera ‘Listen Now’ (Velvet Season and the Hearts Of Gold “Unlimited Financial Resources” Remix)

Now considering my last post was LN-CC based (in fact it referred to the release party for this very record) I know it might appear as though I’m some kind of Dalston shill, hungry for fashion love and a free Yohji jacket or something (actually, I wouldn’t mind that) but nothing could be further from the truth, in this particular case. This record has sneaked out of left-field to swing into my top ten for the year. It made me feel the same way I felt when I heard Detroit Experiment’s ‘Think Twice’ for the first time: that epic groove underpinned by gorgeous keys with some solo wig-out action to make you feel woozily disorientated on t’floor. This however is a far more psychedelic beast altogether; Manzanera’s guitar work is let loose with face-chewing, over-biting gusto, and I love it. Incidently,I also featured VS&HOG’s ‘Camel Toe’ on the blog which you should definitely check if you haven’t had that particularly deep pleasure. Unequivocally another top ten shoe-in.

I’m not sure if this remix is going to be available anywhere else (and I think it’s vinyl only) so get involved, or you’ll regret it. I can’t wait to hear this badboy LOUD.
