Sticking Brooklyn-based duo Chordashian into a neat pigeonhole isn't particularly easy. "Don't Wait Up", the lead track from this extended EP, is a great example. Utilising traditional instruments, vintage synths and the latest soft synth plug-ins, it sounds like a curious mash-up of Hall & Oates, andBenoit & Sergio with a Buzzin' Fly-ish deep house sheen. "Sea Crest", meanwhile, could be considered to be nu-Balearic - it certainly has that blinking-at-the-sun gorgeousness - while "The Jam" is thrillingly adventurous (if a little odd). With a trio of fine remixes also included, "Don't Wait Up" is easily Mullet's best for some time.
"I don't want to be alone, so pick up the phone and call me," plead our heroes on this synth-pop fetishists' homage to the humble booty call. Self-confessed lovers of "good hair" Chordashian are the heroes in question, making their first appearance on SpaceWalker recordings. The Brooklyn duo offer up three different versions of their cheap-pop meets nu-disco cut. The radio-friendly original seems set to get a few spins at tongue-in-cheek indie discos, while the Out All Night version peppers a dark nu-disco groove with twinkling, 8-bit synths and twiddly synth-funk solos. Best of all, though, is the touchy-feely BRONX Mix, which is almost Balearic in its rush-inducing appeal.
