Parts in the post, pt. 11

Hamburg-based label Sunday Service comes up with a new album from Jullander these days named "Phobos In Funkytown (Surfing The Impossible Stone)" which ain't that accessible to electronic folks as the pre-album 12" "Reworks & Continuations". Last mentioned featured a good bunch of cool remixes from the forthcoming album by artists like Lawrence, Jörg Theurer and others. In fact the new album is non-electronic purism, very deep, melancholic and sometimes gets a bit abstract when it comes to lyrics. Those are bilingual, german as well as english and more often mixed within one song which sometimes sounds strange at first. Not an easy one to take but if one listens closely and more than once things getting clearer and don't seem that cryptic anymore. Anyone minds the term IndiePop For Adults ?

Not long ago I mentioned the release of Lil' Love's "Litte Love" on german label Zeitgeist, which has been coming up with a second 12" last week featuring new remixes by Markus Binapfl and the australian duo Great Barrier a.k.a. Pete Paradise & Roger Bucks. Both mixes are on a more progressive but still happy tip and are going to work the crowd well.

By far the biggest tune sitting in my P.O. box last week is Damian Marley's Reggae-anthem "Welcome To Jamrock", originally released by Tuff Gong International and now licensed to Universal Germany. Word of mouth says that this tune has been destroying this years Notting Hill Carnival and I'm more than willing to believe that. "Welcome To Jamrock" is really, really huge now and is to be entitled as future classic, tearing up every floor and not only heating up a crowd inna di dance.
