Review: As the title suggests, this four-track escapade from Romare features a quartet of straight-to-tape versions of tracks from his live show. According to Ninja Tune, the tracks were recorded using instruments from his live set up, a handful of samples (primarily from previous "studio" versions of the included tracks) and "occasional bass guitar from his brother". As you'd expect, it's a largely fluid and stripped-back affair, with opener "All Night (Live Session 1)" - a kind of warm, boogie-driven deep house shuffler - and the skewed, late night deep house shuffle of "Come Close To Me (Live Session 2)" standing out. He employs some jazzy guitars and extremely fluid keys solos on "Come Close To Me (Live Session 1)" and "Je T'aime", giving both an attractive, hybrid organic/electronic vibe.

Review: Archie 'Romare' Fairhurst is a productive chap. This sophomore album appears barely 12 months after his acclaimed debut full-length, Projections. It sees him revisiting a theme first explored on 2013's Love Songs: Part One EP on Black Acre. According to the press release, it's a musical journey through affairs of the heart, moving from the gentle sensuality of melodious beat jam "Who Do You Love", to the sexually-charged dancefloor thrills of restless house cut "New Love", via the gooey-eyed spooning electronica of "L.U.V", and the sweaty, post-punk disco blues of stand-out "All Night". As usual, it's tricky to pin down musically - Fairhurst has always had a thing for darting between sounds and styles at will - but is immaculately produced and hugely entertaining.
