Peter Clamat - Stretch The Truth EP (Uknowy)

Without a doubt one of the niftiest things about running our little label & blog is that sometimes some kind souls are warm-hearted enough to send us fantastic little care-packages containing their current or forthcoming labours of love. It's especially nice to receive not only some kickass upcoming bits on hefty 12", but when the guys running things also turn things up to eleven and the package contains the whole 9 yards: not only great music on record plus a full-colour sleeve, and download code, but also tons of stickers, and the icing on the cake - a lovely handwritten note.

The 'Whisper To Me' EP is easily his most accomplished and well-rounded effort to date. 'A Way We All Accept' on the A bumps and grinds in all the right places with it deep drums, strings and chopped up vocals. It reminds me of the classic stuff that used to come out on Jamie Thinness' Seasons label in the late 90s. Have a listen below, belter of a track.

Also on the A is Fifth Flight, a moody shuffler with sweet, yearning vocal loops and smooth acidic melody lines.
