Tel Aviv Downtown (Red Axes Edit)

Garzen Records
Weatherall favourites, Red Axes, indulge further into the weirder realm of the senses with a quirky spin on ‘Tel Aviv Downtown’ – an unusual, original synth pop production from an '80s Isreali band called Siam. The duo rough it up a little by tumbling Linn Drum rolls, sharp synths and curious samples that recall William Orbit’s electro classic ‘Prepare To Energize’. With a tribal vocal stirring Nitzer Ebb’s call-to-arms, ‘Join The Chant’, this is about as essential as the new wave current gets.
