From Lo-fi To Disco! LP LP00437 4250137204376 22 Apr 16
Fifth album from Frankfurt's Woog Riots. Silvana Battisti and Marc Herbert's career in pop music began in 2004 when they compiled and curated an international tribute sampler dedicated to Manchester's indie icons The Fall. The new album brings together drum machines, guitars, electronica, and 60's analogue reverbs, to create a minimal pop album. Along the way we encounter exuberant dancefloor tracks (echoing "Penthouse and Pavement" era Heaven 17) , groovy singalong refrains, and the ever-present lo-fi vocal style of Silvana Battisti. All this is achieved at a frenetic pace that packs 13 songs into 35 minutes
