I read somewhere recently that Simian is like the Chemical Brothers of our time. I think this not far from the truth. Their production style is unique and changing which gives them an element of longevity. Their love and use of traditional synths is always evident and through the accompinent of some solid vocalists they have mad some pretty powerful and lasting songs (Hustler anyone?)
The one that stood out to me the day I got their most recent album was Cruel Intentions. I love everything about it, the stong vocal sung by the big Beth Ditto from The Gossip, the lyrics, the sound, the smell, the taste. This is why I was understandably excited when a lil remix package was released. I like pretty much all the remixes on the release, some more than others but also like the fact that they are all quite different from one another. These are my two favs.
