Faux Pas - Rose's Lament/Renfield's Dream
Fucking hell! Where did this come from? All I know about Faux Pas is that he/she/they are from Melbourne and have a nifty website that sells everything from CDs to t-shirts and that they've only gone and released the best stone-cold balearic tune in eons. There is something incredibly enticing and sophisticated about the melodies and arrangements in these tracks, elements that would make these absolute anthems if Manchester's legendary Sunday session Aficionado was still on - although these aren't out on vinyl so you'd have to break a few rules to play it there but for tunes this good I'd gladly wear a record sleeve on my head all night long. Absolute quality and I do believe that the beards have found someone new to fawn over.
