Like its predecessors, the latest volume in Play Pal Music's Pals series offers up a wide-range of tantalising treats from up-and-coming and hot underground artists based in all four corners of the globe. The label says it amounts to "a collection to soundtrack these strange days", and there's certainly some paranoid and off-kilter moments to be found throughout (for proof, check the hard-wired, intoxicating Italo-disco chug of M Love's 'Oboda' and Aural Trace's ultra-hazy 'Melange'). Theplentiful highlights dotted across the set include the fuzzy, low-slung brilliance of Mufti's 'Fascinato', the throbbing space disco goodness of Leo Af Ekenstam's 'Stress' and the deep, slow and effortlessly emotive warmth of 'The Unknown' by Manner of Speaking.
