Fairlight Myth - Alpha November

Our favorite singles club is wiaiwya-7777777.  For each of seven consecutive years (2015 is the fourth) WIAIWYA is releasing a limited run of 7" vinyl releases.  A subscription will get you the vinyl, free streaming of the releases on Bandcamp and a digital download.  You will not be surprised to learn that each release of the releases is out on the 7th of the month, with each day of the week being represented by the end of the year.

This year WIAIWYA asked artists to collaborate, resulting in rare and interesting songs.  This month's release is Alpha November by Fairlight Myth, which is a collaboration between Peter Astor and Keith Negus.  Astor's impressive career includes The Loft and, one of my all-time favorites, The Weather Prophets, as well as writing about music.  Negus is a veteran of Cane and The Coconut Dogs, and several electronic projects.  He also has written about music and works in academia.

The title track is a features a slinky rhythm underpinning an insistent melody and taut vocals.  Play this one before going out late at night.  The flip side is "Love Repeats" couples warm synths with a buoyant rhythm.  Perhaps it is a perfect lovers' soundtrack for a Sunday afternoon?  Test drive both tracks below.  Note that the single can be purchased as a digital download at the Bandcamp link.
