Boomkat Product Review:
As the year draws to a close it becomes time for those beloved lists and compilations to start appearing in a heady deluge. The Tirk label are now on their 65th release, and as usual collect the yearly goings on with an annual (remember anuals? Those were great) for the lazier music fans out there. A collection of disco, psych-rock and funk from the past and present, this should appeal to anyone with a nose for retro futurism. Highlights come in the shape of Son of Sound’s gorgeously melancholic almost Roule-esque ‘Life Under Bridges’ and Time and Space Machine’s echoing psych jam ‘Set Phazers To Stun’. It’s hard to place which tracks are old and which are new, such is the attention to detail on the newer productions - making this a valuable, hugely enjoyable set.
