Mastering Primetime “Going Places” on La Vida Es Un Mus.

“Primetime return with their second EP ‘Going Places’ on La Vida Es un Mus. A four track EP of juvenile Joie de vivre. Each of the four tracks ooze sass, nonchalance and that special ingredient – songs that demand repeat listens. Standout track is ‘Pervert’ which is one minute and 56 seconds of post punk perfection which would happily sit on Rough Trade’s seminal 1980 compilation ‘Wanna Buy a Bridge’ in between Kleenex, Swell Maps and The Raincoats. You will not find something as instant and essential in 2016.'”

Quango

First World Problems recordings has just proudly put out its first record – The Quango Fatality 7″ e.p., mastered here.

3-song single from this short-lived London band and it sounds like a long-lost relic from 1978. The a-side is an absolute stunner, a jittery post-punk song with an insanely catchy lead guitar line and menacing, spoken vocals recounting a tube accident. The two songs on the b-side are a little more rocked-out with a distinct Sex Pistols inluence, sounding like the legions of provincial bands that started after the Pistols’ rise to fame. The off-the-cuff genius on display here immediately brings to mind the classic singles on labels like Rough Trade, Fast Product, and Step Forward.”
