Brooklyn trio Archie Pelago has always been one of Mister Saturday Night's more intriguing acts, with a sound that expertly blends live playing (trumpet, cello, sax), with analogue and digital electronics. While it would be incorrect to say that their tunes - think jazz, disco, Latin, soul, funk and house melded together - ape the work of Arthur Russell and Dinosaur L, but they're certainly in a similar ballpark. This latest single for Harkin and Carter's lauded imprint is another impressive outing. Choose between the Konk-meets-Floating Points-in-Brazil warmth of "Clammy Customer", and "Madame Suede Nightshade", a choppier and chunkier house excursion that makes great use of heavily edited samples, flowery chords and darting chords. Excellent stuff, as always.
