Momentarily decloaking, I give you something that might take a couple of listens but will be very, very rewarding and actively make you cooler. Latvia’s Bandmaster are very much on the rise in 2017, doing Eurosonic Noorderslag at the start of the year and covering themselves with Baltic festival circuit glory.
Here’s the EP. For me the absolute standout tracks are Just Paddle (an excellent, spacey duet with EZERI) and Paper, Rock and Scissors which sounds like two songs playing simultaneously in the absolute best way possible. She Will starts off as a 90’s dancefloor banger and then gleefully wrongfoots you just when you’re expecting the drop. Hiding finishes the EP off with all sorts of difficult noises, squelchy noises and a synth solo line that begs to be played on keytar.
I like this, it’s good. You can definitely dance to it, but it’s like a 4/5 difficulty rating.
