Funk, pop, samba masters The Orielles are firmly back in hearts and homes of their fans with their new album Disco Valador released via Heavenly Recordings. The band have come hurtling out of the starting traps with their upbeat tunes which have seen them become embraced the world over. Their second album sees a musical maturity compared to their debut. Not that Silver Dollar Moment was a blip on their back catalogue, far from it, the band are growing into educators to their elders with each release.
First single taken from the album Come Down On Jupiter sounds like Keith Mansfield is at the production controls with a mysterious library music jazz sound which slowly forms into a groove not too dissimilar to the sort of funk the JB’s were famed for. Memoirs Of Miso is a stone cold classic track. Sid’s quick action drums goes electro as an infectious beat coupled with Esme’s singing about ‘albatrosses’ before the band as a whole go into a telepathic jam, Henry leading the pack with a looping guitar solo straight out of the top draw as the track fade out is delightful. If you’re after a tune that’ll impress your crowd, this is the one.
Further sounds to pluck from the collection are Dynamic Goo, with a bass line squarely zapping you between the eyes before hypnotising your hips into a supersonic groove. Space Samba (Disco Valador) bounces and joyfully exudes youthful happiness, never mind getting down on the floor with this one, how about a street party for the nation! A euphoric release from these Halifax wonders, simply stunning, what more can I say other than buy it! Now!
