Boomkat Product Review:
Emotional Rescue do us another big favour with this compilation/reissue of rare and sought-after New Wave aces. Plus Instruments (a.k.a. + Instruments) was an early vehicle for Sonic Youth's Lee Ranaldo, who was joined by a gang of '80s downtown New Yorkers including their vocal locus, Truus De Groot to forge a virulent sort of wave disco sound over a handful of singles and compilation appearances between 1981-1984. These are their best songs, including the hypnotic walking bass and alluring lyrics of 'Bodies', also included in a really trippy unreleased mix, beside the disco-not-disco punk-funk brilliance of 'Special' and the killller bass lick of 'Deutsche Frau'. TIP!
