Letherette - D&T

  • Share
  • A slew of singles almost always precedes a debut artist album on Ninja Tune these days. In Letherette's case, D&T will be the fourth EP leading up to the Wolverhampton duo's self-titled album, which is due for release in April. Coming off like a meeting between Discovery-era Daft Punk and the broken stabs of Jackson & His Computer Band, "D&T" is two-and-a-half minutes of fluorescent guitar solos, spliced soul vocals and off-kilter kicks. Taking the first of three remixes, Warp's Chris Clark masterfully transforms the original into an Italo-style stomper with cut-up breaks. Dorian Concept's wash of calypso-tinged nu-jazz makes less of an impact, before The Invisible deliver a goth-pop remix. "She Shines," a decent original that doesn't feature on the album, is a sultry house number of the postmillennial West London persuasion, with guest vocals from the Brooklyn neo-folk duo Jed and Lucia.
