SAPPHIRE SLOWS – RULES
If Not Not Fun was a person, they’d invite you back to their house, roll you a fat joint and proceed to delve into their obscure vinyl collection, pulling out gem after gem of, I dunno, Luxembourg’s finest avant garde castanet artist or the previously unheard Aboriginal acid house classics. And you’d enjoy every minute. Which is to say they’re somewhat eclectic. For example, ‘Rules,’ taken from Sapphire’s forthcoming Allegoria album (due date, Nov 5) which just sounds like nothing else out there. Ethereal vocals atop surging and frantic electronics which is pop, techno, electronica, industrial and coldwave all in one. It’s also incredible.
