Between 2006 and 2012, Italian restaurant Mangiana in New York's Lower East Side became an unlikely midweek hang out, with musical programmer Jason Kinkade being joined each week by all manner of local heroes and international guests. Golf Channel Recordings has decided to celebrate the spot, gathering together previously unheard cuts from those who played and partied there. The full compilation is due in a few weeks; before that, though, they've made Dedication's "Let Me Rock You" available as a single. Felix Dickinson's largely Japanese outfit is, predictably, in fine form, layering impeccably emotion-rich, jazz-inspired piano solos over a sparse, delay-laden drum machine groove, cosmic chords, analogue electronics and killer bassline. You'll either want to dance or lie down; either way, you'll be royally entertained.
