Soccer96 return with new single ‘I Was Gonna Fight Fascism’ featuring Alabaster dePlume: smarturl.it/Soccer96. Having recently signed to Moshi Moshi Records, the track is accompanied by the announcement of the band’s forthcoming EP ‘Tactics’, which is due out 26th June.
Soccer96, is the revered synth and drums duo of Danalogue [Dan Leavers] and Betamax [Max Hallett], who are most known as being two thirds of Mercury nominated band The Comet Is Coming (Impulse! Universal), and also producing and mixing the group's records.
‘Tactics’ sees Soccer96 expand on their duo template as they are joined by the entirely original Alabaster DePlume on vocals and Total Refreshment Centre’s head engineer Kristian Craig Robinson AKA ‘Capitol K’ on bass, who also engineered the recordings.
All things considered, this is, by far, my favourite collection of "Yuletide chimeras" I stumbled over the last years! I thought I was done with acquiring seasonal alternatives for this year, but after discovering these "oriental jazz" versions, I simply couldn't resist ;-)
I like everything here, but have to point out Idris Rahman's clarinet playing that I'm really, really relishing! Carsten Pieper
These experimental electronic songs, half of which stretch past the 10-minute mark, evolve slowly and with purpose, building incrementally to climaxes as intuitive as they are thrilling. Bandcamp Album of the Day Jan 13, 2020
