Review

Marxist Love Disco Ensemble may have chosen their name playfully, but the inspirations behind this debut album - primarily disco's rapid journey from being a musical form created by and for oppressed minorities, into a major-label backed symbol of rampant dancefloor capitalism - are surprisingly thoughtful. It's the music that matters, though, and on that score MLDE scores highly. Composed and performed by a collective of musicians who love obscure Mediterranean and Balkan disco of the late '70s and early '80s, it's gorgeous grooves, life-affirming musical movements and glassy-eyed vocals manage to bring something fresh to the table despite their vintage inspirations and presence of spacey 1970s synths. The plentiful highlights include, but are not limited to, the saucer-eyed sunshine of 'Brumaire', the piano-sporting cheeriness of 'Manifesto', the Cerrone-influenced '1905' and the energetic 'Hide & Seek'.
