Review: Anoymous edit collective Delicate Wash air a second batch of freshly laundered reworks following the runaway success of their April 2018 debut. As with its' predecessor, the vibe is humid, cosmic and gently Balearic. Opener "Exotica" sees the mystery washers make merry with a jazzy, zouk-influenced '80s instrumental rich in glistening guitar solos and new age synthesizer melodies, while "Syndrome 28"is a wonderfully spacey mix of vibrant synthesizer solos and sparse machine percussion. Over on side B, "The Undertaker" is a curiously jaunty, synth-heavy library jazz-funk workout, while EP highlight "Stand By Me" sees them tinker with a spaced-out, dubbed-out electrofunk jam rich in rubbery bass, stuttering machine beats and synthesizer sax solos. Bonkers but brilliant.
Review: Brand new anonymous edit collective Delicate Wash start the spin cycle with four absolutely stunning slices of deeply dug funk soul. Laden with cosmic and Balearic nuances, from the Fleetwood Mac-esque twangs and glides of "Oh Michela" through to the playful slapbass, bluesy drama and raw uplift of the K&D recalling "Christian Does It Better" via the psychedelic subtleties and mild trippiness of "Web Objects" and the wilier jazz informed spirals of "La Salvazione Meravigliosa", these are four superbly polished and sculpted finds that will clean any floor you're faced with (delicately of course).
