(Jigsaw Records, PZL112)
originally from Milan, Italy but now based in London, this is the first outing for the enigmatic Super Paradise. The album starts off with the infectious "The F.C.", a great opener, if there ever was one, with its classic synth arpeggios and driving rhythm, that propels it forward for an exciting three minutes. From there, we have the one-two punch of "Ties" and "Dawn", a pair of anthemic noise-pop hits that actually remind me a lot of Jigsaw's own American Culture. After a brief interstitial piece, we're treated to a guitar-based version of LCD Soundsystem's "All My Friends" (not knowing the original, I checked it out, and can safely say that Super Paradise have very much made it their own!), followed by a couple more noise-pop tunes, finally closing out with "Tonight", a slow-building mini-epic. Barely over 20 minutes in length, you'll have no problem hitting repeat on this rousing mini-album!
Not limited. All songs written by Super Paradise, except track 5 by LCD Soundsystem. Available digitally on Bandcamp.
