The Egg - Galactic Love Machine
Perennial festival faves The Egg return with their fifth studio album, produced and co-written with Orb knob-twiddler Greg Hunter and keyboard-wizard Ulrich Schnauss. What’s always been so relishable about The Egg’s previous full-lengths is the mix they achieve between a jamming-improvisational vibe and lush studio-confected textures and ‘Galactic Love Machine’ is no exception, ‘Psyfunk’ kicking things off with a dreamy mix of wibbly synths, shoegazey guitar and crisp, thrumming beats. I’m reminded most palpably by tracks like the deeply dubby ‘Subfunkd’ and ‘Sublemon’ of Ninja Tune’s hippyish fringe (Up Bustle & Out, DJ Food) as well as the golden age of Eat Static and Guerrilla Records by more straight-ahead tent-pleasers like ‘Dreams Are So Much Better’ and ‘Deepspace’. Will I listen again? Probably not, because I don’t do barbecues or MDMA. If you do either of those, this should be your soundtrack this summer.
