MAC McCAUGHAN – A New Song For Ewe

“If you’re anything like me, the idea of New Order with a woman singing sounds like a dream combination and Martha Ladly proves it on this fantastic 80s blast. Ladly was in Martha and the Muffins but wasn’t the main Martha. This single features Peter Hook on bass, “pan pipes”, strings arranged by Simon Jeffes of Penguin Cafe Orchestra and glorious synth washes & stabs all topped with Martha’s charming vocals & an epic hook on the chorus.”

KEELEY – Song(s) For Ewe

“Wendy and Lisa I’ve learned were part of Prince’s band, and he’s arguably the greatest all-round musician EVER so they must have sensational chops as that cat wouldn’t tolerate anything less than perfection. Voice of the Beehive meanwhile were Power-Pop princesses who made one incredible album – 1988’s Let It Bee – but then seem to have suffered death by A&R and overproduction. Fancy that eh? The perils of major label life! The moral of the story? Indie artists need to be on Indie labels. Bliss-out!”

“This song on the record just takes me back to high school days, running around in a dreamy haze, imagining what the future clippings would bring. Hearing many influences on this record from Laurie Anderson, to Air, Nina Simone to even hints of Peaches and Grimes but ultimately at the end it is pure Jooj Two.”
