the manitou

Been a fair old while since we were visited upon by the Manitou, however the silence has been broken thankfully by an email from Joshua alerting us to new groove in the guise of ‘trans earache express’. This is so delightfully old school new musik that we can almost smell the flock wall wallpaper and hear the crackle of nylon and if I’m honest had us frantically trying to root out our copy of 90 degrees south’s ‘plans for travel’ for comparison. An impish nod to Kraftwerk aside, in title only I’ll be bound and drenched in the kind of motorik mosaics that adorned Echoboy’s quite superb ‘scene 30’ release there’s a subtle undercurrent at play here that suggests if you dig a little deeper you’ll hear the sound of Depeche Mode’s ‘new life’ reduced to a sleeping murmur and awoken to find itself in the fractured wilderness of Numan’s insular ‘telekon’. https://soundcloud.com/themanitou/trans-earache-express
