Scheduled for February 24th via Moot Records / Rough Trade is "Another Round Please", the newest long play release by the duo Rendezvous better known as Itai Simon and Hagai Itzenberg to their parents. Five years in the making and the production / studio skills of David Bascombe who already worked for big names like Tears For Fears, Depeche Mode and Kylie Minogue took Rendezvous further down their very own musical road which is plastered with epic synth lines, live sounding BigBeat-structures and other instruments. And all this stuff is not only live sounding but partly even played live, bringing the good old days of so-called KrautRock / KrautWave / Cosmic to mind - check: "Blues In Space" - as well as early The Crystal Method productions and classic crime / spy movie scores. And that's the reason why "Another Round Please" will appeal to a broad mass of followers and fans - it holds a bit of everything, loads of elements people can relate to without becoming arbitrary at any point, a fact that is well proved by 20+k fans on facebook and 1+ million hits on youtube for their "album in the making" documentary series alone. If you love electronic music of any kind you are well recommended to check this out.
