The terribly underrated King of Woolworths deliver their DEW POINT EP, which only further shows how neglected they’ve been. The stoically beautiful “This is Radio Theydon” has a majestic grandeur in the way the beats and bass lift up the building piano lines. “Sunken Fields” is more dancefloor-oriented, but the odd vocodered spoken word piece adds a certain mystery to the funk. “Tone Poem” is a call from a spy movie, while “Take the Strain” is enough to put Burt Bacharach to shame (but with rhythm). There might be an overreliance on samples here, but they aren’t the end-all and be-all of the tracks; instead, the samples are like aural gravy, coating and enhancing what is actually the good stuff.
