Reliably informed


Bella Union

Released: 01.04.22








Another instalment of madness from Warmduscher, one of the best party bands around, this melting pot of songs lacks coherence but makes up for it in spades with funk-laden grooves and techno beats. Tracks like Twitchin’ In The Kitchen feel similar to John Grant, whereas Super Cool would be more at home in a dingy nightclub, and interludes like Double Vision compound the party mania of the album.

Where At The Hotspot really comes alive is on tracks like Baby Toe Joe and Wild Flowers, which augment their off-kilter lyrics with a perpetual funk soul groove that is wholly infectious. It’s a raucous ball of energy of an album with an unrelenting party vibe that leaps out from every crevice.
