Review: Comprised of Kranky regulars Mark Nelson, Robert Donne and percussionist Steven Hess, Anjou make their debut on the esteemed Kranky imprint. The trio trade in a unique kind of ethereality, where tracks like "Specimen Question" take you far away into a melodic daze and bring you back to planet earth feeling shaken. Beautiful snippets of field recordings, enchanting voices and a little bit of hardware fuzz created by analogue machinery make up the album's core, and tracks like "Inclosed" feel both sparse and rich at the same time, a characteristic of all the tracks herein.
Review: Straight back to 1987: original copies of Eric Bell's "Your Love" have been the sole preserve of collectors and classicists for many years, often fetching triple figures when they surface. Whether it's Eric's heartfelt croons on the original, or Frankie Knuckles' full coloured, super-euphoric instrumental, this genre-defining record has stood the test of time with near-matchless impeccabilty. An essential slice of history.
