A: Laughing Out
B1: For Vocal
Limited edition of 123 copies + WAV Download of all tracks. Composed and performed by top pop duo Dale Cornish and Phil Julian. Dale Cornish: vocals, words, electronics (B1 and B2). Phil Julian: electronics. Mastered by that Phil Julian. Cut by Jason Goz, London, February 2016. Screenprint of a legendary double-act by Lukas Julius Keijser.
Three tracks which emerged from a rehearsal session in an oddly decorated room in South Croydon.
â€śLaughing Outâ€? is the duoâ€™s sing-along summer anthem and shares some DNA with â€śLove Canâ€™t Turn Aroundâ€? as re-imagined/destroyed by a middleâ€“aged balding chap with a deep distrust of the dancefloor.
â€śFor Vocalâ€? appears to be a recording of people moving pallets of ride cymbals wrapped in tin-foil around a warehouse but itâ€™s hard to say, really. Almost certainly important.Â
â€śPalazzoâ€? = a computer minding its own academic business + some curmudgeonly American test equipment + some honeypot crooning = not a dry seat in the house.
