RESTOCK ARRIVING END OF FEBRUARY
More sounds from the deep running, close knit Australian underground, as Tarquin Manek resurrects his M. Quake moniker for this latest collaboration with HTRK's Jonnine. As on the 'Fall In Love With Yourself' 7" from a few years back, Manek's persists with the lovers' rock inspirations, this time out interpolating Annie Lennox's 'Little Bird' into a dub-steeped dreamer extended across nine slow burning, smokey minutes. On the A, Jonnine purrs and seduces in typically coquettish manner in parts recalling Manek's involvements with Kallista Kult and YL Hooi, and on the flip we get to experience the world without her - the difference is actually pretty revealing of Manek's opposing interests in pop tropes and experimental electronics, and suggests a full album of such things is undoubtedly going to be in high demand by the educated few. These 18 minutes will suffice while we hold tight.
