Hits The Spot: Loves Eternal Odyssey

We first shone a light on Abe a while ago, and today the torch burns in their direction again with this remix of How To Dress Well's Can't See My Own Face.

As influenced-admirers of Tom Krell's softly-softly approach, Abe delicately re-direct his bedroom R 'n' B deeper into late night Benzo oblivion; opting not to alter the arrangement dramatically, they simply stretch the original out, introducing extended and re-worked 'tro's and a little of the warped 90's soul sound they're quickly establishing as their own.

Lifting an already fragile vocal, it's re-laid loosely over loops old and new with a second-hand stickiness that leaves it sounding barely there, curled up at the edges, close to losing it's grip on a residual reality...

What the fuck am I talking about? What does that even mean? I'll tell you: nothing. You can make your own minds up, you don't need me chatting sixth-form shit @ U.

In Motion: A Broken Bow

Evryone - Flamingos (dir. Entrepreneurs)

So then 2011, let's be having you. My first proper post of the year and it's a veritable IT love-in.

After introducing the wonderfully eccentric Evryone to the blog world back in August of last year, it seems fair that we offer the exclusive drop of the video for their début single Flamingos.

Such news would bring a smile to my face even at the worst of times, but that smile quickly turned to a grin once I heard that the video is directed by the ever multi-faceted Entrepreneurs, of whom I'm expecting a big year ahead.
