Labrador Records is back with the excellent musical freebies. This time, it’s the title track from The Sound of Arrows’ upcoming EP, M.A.G.I.C. (due out 1/28).
The Sound of Arrows has gathered a young chanting school class, a girl singer from Tokyo and a handful of well hidden un-cleared samples which they’ve mixed with bouncy analogue synthesizers, soulful guitars and orchestral instruments over a hundred recording channels. The result is a marvellous mix of old TV shows for children, old school hip-hop, new disco and timeless pop hits!
You can download the track — which sounds like the best mash-up of The Go! Team and Saint Etienne that never was — here. You can also watch a short intro video that, in all of its nostalgic (and possibly “un-cleared”) glory, introduces the EP.
