Attack Decay Sustain Release 2017 Remaster LP
Remastered 10th anniversary reissue on double vinyl in re-worked art gatefold sleeve - includes 3 extended versions.
Formed from the ashes of psychedelic pop experimentalists, Simian, James Ford and Jas Shaw have been recording and performing as Simian Mobile Disco / SMD for over ten years and five studio albums. Over the course of their career, their sound has continuously evolved from record to record. Their continual re-invention can sometimes seem, from the outside, like a series of jumps, but that’s an effect of the process of releasing an album every couple of years. For the band, the process has been smooth and gradual, naturally following shifts in their own tastes and the musical landscape in which they found themselves. The sound however is distinctive enough to hold their body of work in a coherent whole.
From almost accidentally surfing the blog house wave, with their much loved debut, Attack Decay Sustain Release; through their electronic pop productions on Temporary Pleasure; and what could perhaps be regarded as their magnum opus, the distillation of multiple influences and strands of UK dance and electronic music on the critically acclaimed Unpatterns; or their analogue/desert excursions on the more experimental Whorl and even the two sets of purely functional techno gear on Delicacies and Welcome To Sideways – all have what can only be described as SMD’s signature sonic aesthetics.
Praise for ADSR: * "Simian Mobile Disco's debut is a dance record that shows a surprising amount of subtlety and flair."* - All Music "SMD's excellent debut album as a stand-alone group, Attack Decay Sustain Release, is for dancing, not moshing." 8.4 - Pitchfork "This is a damn good party--best not to miss out." - Billboard “The perfect dance album" 5/5 - iDJ
