The latest Sadistic offering from the kings of tweaked new age sensibilities Cos/Mes provides a wonderful showcase for the talents of not one but two of the Pool’s acts.
Discodromo pick up a six pack from base and go out in a disco sludge fest across the Viet Cong in their Black Voodoo rework of ‘Iron Deck’. Soft Rocks, in polar contrast, zone out in front of the shopping channel with a pack of Xanax and a C90 blaring with some lost Baldelli mixtape in a tender, cosmic and balletic reshaping of ‘Ramp’ by the Brighton boys.
Both essential listening, with the added bonus of the angular funk of Cos/Mes’s own ‘Build the Band’, yes that one from the Robert Johnson mix, backing things up.
