l.a. takedown

You might well remember us going a tad cock-a-hoop over these dudes a little while back, adorably fashioned in 80’s stylings rippled in hints of a 70’s vintage prog majesty, this is new groove from L A Takedown. Once fondly described by Black Dice man Bjorn Copeland as ‘baywatch krautrock’, ‘night skiing’ perfectly epitomizes their curve surfing astute artistry for seamlessly tapping in that whole big hair and big shouldered suit wearing classic MTV vibe, the sounds both smooth and cinematic veer seductively, streamlined in a pristine pop symmetry that nods to the mighty Zombi as though rephrasing and remoulding Neil Young’s ’trans’ in their own sonic image.
