English production team Simian Mobile Disco release their debut full-length studio album ‘Attack Decay Sustain Release’ James Ford and Jas Shaw, sought-after remixers and producers, (James produced the Arctic Monkeys’ second album ‘Favourite Worst Nightmare’ and the duo have remixed tracks including “Cherry Blossom Girl” by Air and the Klaxons’ “Magick” among others) broke away from psych-folk collective Simian in 2005.
Simian Mobile Disco didn't want their songs to sound too techy and programmed, so they recorded them all on analogue machines and kept the mistakes. They went to New York to record the vocals of an aspiring singer/rapper called Char Johnson. She freestyled for 45 minutes and SMD edited the best bits into “Hustler”. The album also features their old Simian mucker Simon Lord on “I Believe”, Barry Dobbin from Clor on “Love” and they enlisted exuberant Go! Team frontwoman Ninja to splatter her sassy hip-house rhymes all over the irresistible opener “It's The Beat”.
They have played everywhere from the Club NME Tour to superclubs like Fabric. All the album's tracks began life as extended club ‘wig-outs’ for SMD to play out live, but have been edited down to keep the album varied, punchy and 1. Sleep Deprivation 2. I Got This Down 3.
