When Push Comes To Shove
LP, CD + Digital. Out NOW on Possession Records.
“Chin Up contains 11 tracks of what might be loosely described as “ambient synth pop” with a running time of almost an hour. It is in a way a mirror release to When Push Comes To Shove as both records share the same approach to composition, sound design and production techniques but with different results.”
A new video for the track “Laughter Takes Off The Edge” from the album Chin Up premieres on The Brvtalist today, an online magazine dealing with mutant metropolitan culture and generally music on the darker side of the spectrum.
“Jack Duckworth is a synth-driven journeyman who has delivered leftfield sounds across multiple projects over the past 25 years. For the past decade, he’s developed a sizeable, sinewave-forward solo catalogue as Soft Riot.”
Also known as Three Broadway Girls, this number is a fun gem from the Pre-Code era of Hollywood Films that came near the end of Prohibition in the US and around the start of the “talkies”, showing a window to an era of free spirited film-making. It’s the Girls Just Wanna Have Fun of the classic Hollywood era.
This is the final of three new instalments of the series of mixes done over the winter entitled “Winter Waves & Cryptic Caves”; this one being the most dynamic of the set, having more of a focus on favourite pieces from film soundtracks.
