Velvet Season & The Hearts Of Gold / Love Coma / Magic Wand Steel Band

Velvet Season & The Heart of Gold, Love Coma, Test Pressing, Review

This one arrived in the inbox a while back but its taken me a minute to get to it. I blame going to see the rather brilliant William Basinski show at the Union Chapel and also a superb Yorkston/Thorne/Khan show in Islington (thanks Scott & Karen). Should really review these shows but its hard to find a minute. Anyway, we digress.

Velvet Season & THOG have a firm place in our hearts at Test Pressing as they are people that keep the fire burning exactly where it should be. Who knows what is samples and what is played as their collections run super deep but this one comes with some looped and twisted sleaze Disco in ‘Love Coma’ on the A side (Gerry Rooney of Velvet Seasons described it as “A bit of German fisting Disco, it works. We were in Berlin with the leather boys & Teutonic temptresses! Amazing fun party.” Pretty apt. ‘Magic Wand’ is a calypso disco groove looped and bumping. Its quality. You can’t go wrong. Check it.

You can listen to clips here on the Phonica website.
