One of this year’s best new labels, People In The Sky, are on a roll right now what with Friendly Fires almost certain to be one of next year’s biggest indie/dance crossover acts and the likes of Wax Stag keeping it ferociously fresh. They’re finishing the year on a high too with the signing of Plugs, one of the many projects out there involving Morgan Quaintance from the shitly named but annoyingly fun Does It Offend You, Yeah?
The EP is out in February but we’ve got an advance taste of it for you now. The lead track That Number is a surprisingly downtempo slice of nicely shambolic disco punk with a nice squelchy acid line running through it and reinforces my belief that 2008 is going to be all about the sub 120 bpms. Yuksek pops up for a mix that takes you into what should be familiar French territory by now and the whole things is finished off with the pleasantly awkaward sounding Transatlantic Air Miles.
Now seriously a gold star to whoever could have predicted so many killer records would have come out of St. Albans this year…
