Newcomers Pleasure Planet are an interesting proposition. Made up of Populette's Andrew Potter and muso pal Brian Hersey, they jam live with guitars, bass, synth and analogue electronics, then piece together the resultant grooves. It's a way of working that's certainly paid dividends on this debut EP for Throne of Blood, which boasts a trio of spacious, leftfield house cuts. "Animals", featuring typically stylish vocals from former Hercules & Love Affair member Kim-Ann Foxman, is arguably the highlight, thanks mainly to its early New Order-meets-deep house vibe. That said, the dreamy, low-slung and hazily atmospheric bonus cuts "AM ATM" and "Black Shades for White Nights" are also pretty tasty.
