Caught The Funk In A Synthesizer

Look at all these rumours (to quote Timex Social Club) that have been circulating on the internet that Montreal duo Footprintz have gone their separate ways. If these are to be believed (and they certainly seem to be true), their debut album ‘Escape yourself’ could also be their swansong. If it is, then it's a fine way to go out. Assisted on production duties by the ever-reliable Ewan Pearson, the Canadian pair has delivered a tactile, touchy-feely collection of dream-pop (think Holy Ghost or Benoit & Sergio combined with eighties shoegaze). Woozy, warm and inviting, it should appeal to those who enjoy the early electro sound of bands like The Human League, Soft Cell and Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark. The latter, Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys, released a nice new album as well, called ‘Metroland’). There will be a new double album from Miss Kittin, 'Calling from the stars', on April 22. She's mostly known for her work with Felix da Housecat.

Enjoy the funky synthesizer sounds!
