Beak> - Sex Music
Kraut-cats BEAK> are back; bringing us a first taste of new material since 2015. In case you're wondering, it tastes of gin and cigarettes, like a 2 a.m. snog down a back alley on the way to a taxi rank.
Probably the most accurately titled release of the week, "Sex Music" is exactly that; a sleazy smear of slow grinding electronica at perfect thrusting pace. Garbled electronics grip your thigh with an ON-U intensity, melancholic vocals (think Clinic) represent the inevitable bout of post-orgasmic shame, while the seductive bassline rumbles its way into all your erogenous zones.
I'm not kidding around here, this shit's hotter than a third glass of wine and an hour on Literotica... Over on the flip, Arcade Fire's Win Butler dubs things up, out and all about with a smart rerub. While it introduces a couple of exciting new positions, it lacks the choke, hair pull and flat palm which the A-side delivers with remorseless regularity...
