Moloko : Familiar Feeling

...actually genuinely hard to resist...

When you ask someone what music that like and they answer ‘Oh, a bit of everything, really’, they inevitably own six CDs, and the ones that aren’t by Moby are by [a][/a]. Now, we could dismiss ‘Familiar Feeling’ as music for dullards for this reason. But, thieving its symphonic psychedelic strings straight from some galloping West Coast folk-rock epic, grafting them onto an Ibizan sunrise, and even boasting a Northern Soul-themed video where a talcum-dusted Roisin Murphy throws some very creditable high-kicks, it’s actually genuinely hard to resist.
