This week’s podcast sees a welcome deviation from the house straight and techno narrow with a selection from the newly crowned Mexican Summer act Light Asylum.
It’s hard to speak about the band without starting with Sharon Funchess’ voice, a towering presence we were first made fully aware of when lending “Dancing In Slow Motion” by Teengirl Fantasy an enviable sense of fragile emotion. Dig deeper and Sharon has lent this vocal quality to a number of other bands with a stint in arch NYC punk funk act !!! to her name as well as contributing to “In Your Line”, one of the standout tracks from Telepathe’s underrated debut album Dance Mother.
Sharon sat down recently to put together this sixty minute selection that breezes through the bands contemporaries such as the aforementioned Telepathe, label mates Ford & Lopatin and Austra, as well as touching on classic electrofunk and possibly the only version of Fischerspooner’s “Emerge” that we can stomach.
