Release Date: March 11th 2011
Three new tracks to begin a trio of eps from JR Seaton on Relish this year. Each track here sets out to make the familiar a little more beautiful, and a touch more exciting. Lastly space is given to Gatto Fritto to remake one of his favourite tracks of recent times – Way Savvy – into a tense, epic slo-jam ahead of his highly anticipated album on International Feel.
In Your Mask I See a Better Person is a dancefloor reflection on new relationships. Using a Jupiter 4 and 808 to punch out a stripped House skeleton that blossoms halfway into gurgling drama. Dance Out Doubt is subtle Chicago melancholy. A fragile vocal on surviving elsewhere – ‘we can build our roads again / we’ve got the tools, we’ve got the acumen’ – and analogue dust shuts out the light, making way for the final track.
Way Savvy cuts the introspection and unfurls its wings as a soaring live cut, featuring drums (Milo Smee; Binary Chaffinch), bass (Mike Wright; Brassica), clarinet and swansong vocals. The Grey Flower is a stunning record that mixes the sumptuous with the unexpected, offering an alternate, exuberant vision of a world we know so well.
