Doused in reverb and echo, great sweeping guitars open "Mellow Down" with a truly gravelly resonance. A fluttering harmonica then displaces you somewhere in the US's deep south while more twanging guitar notes ping about with all the rawness of contemporary cult blues hero Seasick Steve. "Refried 86" is similar in its gauzy guitar density and sluggish nu-disco tempo, but this time you could imagine the track fitting into an unreleased version of Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon for its lead solos, gaunt vocals and proggy undercurrent.
"Tell Me" is much lighter, rumbling along on ramshackle lines of drums, guitars, horns and no doubt many other indecipherable instruments. Not so Daniele Baldelli's remix of "Mellow…" The Italian disco king punctures his version with a spaceship's lasers beams, brings the kick drum to the fore and strips the soul of the original vocal away to leave something much sleazier in its wake. Fans of Timothy J Fairplay, Andrew Weatherall or Trentemoller will certainly enjoy this one.
