Track Of The Day #218: STRFKR – Atlantis

Incoming on the much admired around these here parts polyvinyl imprint – the same label that brought you various ear candy from the likes of Saturday looks good to me, Of Montreal, Joan of Arc, owen and Asobi Seksu to name just a small select few is the latest platter from STRFKR entitled ‘Atlantis’. Ripped from a forthcoming double disc set ’miracle mile’, ’Atlantis’ is sugar dipped in an amorphous west coast haze all glittered in wistfully willowy honey glazes and kissed with sumptuous lazy eyed reclines that twinkle with purring effervescence as though tailored in the same handcrafted woodshed as a shyly eyed Avi Buffalo, inscribed in soft lysergic showers, draped in a distractive retro 70’s discofied funkiness all steeled in sky parting sirens and equipped with the kind of sultry undertow that you’d imagine perfectly sound tracking sun scarred festival nights. The sound of summer has arrived.
