Listening to…

The languid dance beats, lowkey vocal delivery and cocktail-party conversational ambience make the incursion of reggae styles, guitar riffs and other forthright effects that much more disarming. There is a new Generationals album out there, but I’m more fascinated by the Medium Rarities EP, which features remixes by Bent Black and Richard Swift. Generationals is a naturally laid-back, rough-edged band, and it’s interesting to hear how they, and outside mixers, are coming to terms with studio trickery. Shades of later projects by members of The Vaselines, or the Belle & Sebastian/Trevor Horn machinations.
