Review: Occasional Rong Music types and Smash Hit Music Co mainstays 40 Thieves transfer to Claremont 56's dancefloor offshoot Leng for a touch of heady Balearic chugginess. "Backward Love" is arguably their best single for some time, coming on like a twisted Balearic disco trip through San Francisco's party underground with only copious amounts of LSD for company. It features backwards guitar solos, a killer groove and the sort of tight, dubwise disco bass that used to mark out Mudd releases. Flipside "Crystal Mountain Thunder Fuck" (really!) continues in the same vein, sounding not unlike an 80s alt rock B-Side. Well and truly baked - we love it.

Review: San Francisco trio 40 Thieves have never been particularly productive, dropping a handful of impressive releases over the course of the last decade. It's something of a pleasant surprise, then, to discover that this long-awaited debut album encompasses an impressive 20 tracks. It's exciting to report, too, that The Sky Is Yours is also rather good. Sitting somewhere between low-slung punk-funk, misty-eyed Balearica, slacker dub-rock, stargazing disco, wonky jazz, stripped Italo and bubbly nu-disco, the 20 tracks bristle with sassy alternative attitude and intoxicating underground flavour. It takes a little time to soak it all in, but it's worth the effort; The Sky Is Yours is full of weird and wonderful highlights.

Review: Balearica exponents 40 Thieves are back on Leng for this cheeky little treat. "In Your Space" is five minutes of slow motion cosmic pleasure, holding a soft and fluffy linear 70s groove that's in no rush to go anywhere...and with the chilled mood it'll put you in, that's a very good thing indeed.

Review: 40 Thieves long awaited debut album, The Sky Is Yours, was something of an epic; 10 years in the making, it stretched out across two CDs and four slabs of vinyl. Here, two tracks from the album get the remix treatment, with crate diggers-turned-party animals Psychemagik and Phil Mison's Cantoma outfit at the controls. Psychemagik's version of "The Sandpiper" is particularly good, delivering a heady, Arabic-influenced slice of chugging, eyes-wide-shut Balearica that benefits greatly from a rubbery groove and woozy chords. Mison takes a different approach on his rework of "The Sky Is Yours", laying down a version that sounds like T-Coy making late '80s Italian house. It is, all told, the epitome of Balearic house.
