Meet Napoleon IIIrd:
Hailing from Leeds, Napoleon IIIrd is “a one man pop machine and his reel-to-reel”. He’s signed to Brainlove Records (the guys who bring you the middle room at Club NME KOKO most Fridays) and his debut album just scored 8/10 in the mag. He’s like a chilled out Dan Deacon, a conjuror of eletronic soundscapes that works alone and owes as much of a debt to the opera (or at least the operatic stylings of Wild Beasts, who he toured with last year) as to the Moog. If you like this track, pre-order the album on the Brainlove site. There’s a special release party at KOKO on Nov 19th too – details and cheap entry here.
Napoleon IIIrd – ‘MTFU’
Dutch Uncles, meanwhile, release new single ‘Fragrant’ this week on Memphis Industries, and Egyptian Hip Hop were on hand as ever to screw around with it to excellent effect.
