Boomkat Product Review:
Optimo Music comes correct with four voodoo grooves by Glasgow's all-analogue battery, Golden Teacher.
Hot on the heels on their debut for the label, the Dylan Thomas-biting 'Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night' swerves deep into fourth world ethnodelia with a heady dose of Glasgow grit and swagger, sounding like "Arthur Russell's Dinosaur L, Liasons Dangereuses, mixed with a Shackleton edit of west African drumming", say the label.
We can hear those influences woven deep across the record, from the dubbed acid chug and swing of 'Like A Hawk' to the flute-fired and frothy rhythmelodic cadence of 'Dringhouses' on the A-side, and to electrifying degrees in the polyrhythmic flurries of 'Sweat Bath With Saturn' and the intricate percussive patter and chiming harmonics of 'In Stoney Sleep'.
Make sure you check this, it's brilliant.
