Dead Rose Music Company – Four Songs EP
The meteoric rise of North Yorkshire's Dead Rose Music Company continues, this time with a much-hyped EP on Jacques Renault and co's NYC label Let's Play House. It's the hypnotic, decidedly loved-up "Faith" that's been getting most plaudits - and rightly so, it's fantastic - but there are plenty other delights to be found amongst Four Songs. Principle among these is the swirling, string-laden disco-house epic "Nutkins" (a formidable house take on Dennis Parker's end-of-night fave "Like An Eagle"), which bobs and weaves like David Haye running away from an opponent. That said, both "Shake" and "Don't Stop" are almost as unmissable. His best yet by some distance.
