I am a large fan of a type of heavy dance music. No, not heavy bass, though that can be a plus. Heavy as in a type of self-seriousness that would make its dancers not smile but grimace with a determined satisfaction. Sofia Kourtesis’ EP, which includes highlights such as Lana Gaye and Home Is Where I Can Dance add a tribal and transcendental twist to the usual house genre affair. The latter track utilizes some beautifully filtered vocals that has been an earworm for weeks now.
Julia With Blue Jeans On and City Wrecker revealed to me how a singer-songwriter can truly wear the heart upon the sleeve. Track after track, Moonface contemplated specific topics and situations, yet the lyrics elevate anecdotes into transcendental revelations. Listen on Bandcamp.
