Yo Yo Gi
I don't know how many times I've mentioned A Certain Ratio here recently but they seem to be popping up with a welcome regularity- the Sir Horatio v Chris Massey Music Control single from earlier this year, the recent ACR remix of Number both stand out (not to mention the still unbelievably sad death of Denise Johnson). The band are gearing up for the release of a new album in September, an ten track record called Loco, and last week put this out ahead of it...
It comes out of the speakers like an updated 2020 version of one of the highlights of 1990's ACR: MCR, Spirit Dance specifically, bassline, acid squiggles, a ton of cowbell and some serious rhythms.
If you didn't get the Sir Horatio single here's a reminder, funky as you like and a video collage to push the buttons of your memory.
