perfect kiss Disconnect (numbered 10" green vinyl mini-LP, £14.50)label: elefant
500 copies. Includes download. The Perfect Kiss is a project led by the multifaceted Joe Moore (The Yearning, Lia Pamina) but this time with a radically different register. "Disconnect" is a mini-LP of electro-pop, recorded with only a keyboard from 1985 - the Yamaha PortaSound PSS-450. His companion on this new adventure is Holly Vanags, a singer from Faringdon, Oxfordshire. Her stimulating voice, delicate and intelligent, perfectly adapts to the musical and conceptual universe of The Perfect Kiss. Using only a keyboard to record the eight songs on the album had countless consequences. Obviously, it affected the sound of the album - minimal, delicate, but agile and with a profoundly pop spirit. You may be reminded of Stephin Merritt, for his versatility, his openness and prolificacy but also of Au Revoir Simone, Lali Puna and even The Human League.
