Somebody doing their very best Arthur Russell impression. Someone doing their best David Byrne doing his best Arthur Russell. Kindness doing their best David Byrne. Rhye, Sinkane`s re-appropriated Highlife, Jeeper creeper, synths playing at steel drums, in wild combination. Dirty Gold`s Californian sun. A gang from Sydney with a little bit of the looseness of fellow antipodeans, No Zu, and the romance of Melbournites Andras & Oscar. “Heard You`re Doing Well” puts the Buddhist croon over an outtake from Suzanne Kraft`s “Talk From Home”, Renee shaken awake by the honk of the Pharaohs sax. “This Place” rocks The Tom Tom Club`s Downtown.
You can order Retiree`s “This Place E.P. from Rhythm Section International here.
