Highlight of the fruits de mer festive festooning of releases must surely be this, with a near perfect December roster to pick from that includes an essential split happening with Static Caravan, a Bowie covers set, their best release to date – that’ll be Us and Them then and a damn fine Sendelica outing, there’s been much anticipated chatter surrounding the news of unreleased gems from Moloko+. Released on Christmas day, limited to just 50 copies in two cover variations all pressed and hand cut upon lathe wax by those good folk over at 345rpm and available to members of the labels fan club, this rare sighting is sure to drive the scramble for bagging and the activity of online auction sites to fever pitch. Two cuts sit upon this scarce happening, ‘can’t wait til Sunday’ and ‘never know what you’ve got’, both prized from the Moloko+ vaults with the former a stirring upbeat radio friendly strum toned soulful jangle lovely invested with swooning lazy eyed haloes of honeyed harmonies and lolloping sun fried banjos whichj all at once sumptuously plug the gaps between the Long Ryders and the Milltown Brothers. For us though, repeat play requirements are the order of the day for the flip, a pulse racing bracing beauty powered on by a radiant panic attacking effervescence that had us here reaching for those forgotten power of dreams and early trashcan sinatras outings for adoring comparison.
