hercules & love affair

Forget the persistent attempts to classify Hercules & Love Affair.

From light disco to early-house from the 70s and 80s, the references keep flying in but this is definitely no banging record for you to shake away the blur.

The vintage vibe still creeps in from time to time with most of the tracks but make no mistake,
this album is too complex, too fresh and produced with too much finesse to be referred to as a shot at revival.

Most tracks border on an easy dance-able bpm and with Antony of Antony & The Johnsons gracing the album, it is a sure win.

It would be convenient to label this band with the rigid genres of today but it would be an undeserving description.

I doubt the hype for this album will be massive, (at least not in singapore) but whoever equates just hype to indisputable quality is a fool.

get this album way before its release date in june.
