Honey Rocks EP

Aus Music
This is a star-signing to Will Saul's Aus Music — none other than the magnificent Recloose, aka Matthew Chicoine, former Planet E and Peacefrog alumnus, and more recently seen on the eminent Rush Hour imprint from Amsterdam. After a stint in New Zealand, he's now resident in Brooklyn, and this is blazing work. 'Honey Rocks' is bliss-heavy, pulsing joy, breaking into jazzual, percussive transitions before locking back in. 'On & On', with its Prelude-style boogie synth stabs is just a delight. Winding up with the shimmering 'Sidewalks', a paean to his new style of pavement, this is every bit as good as you'd want it to be. And maybe even a little better.
