|MH-292 Steffaloo - Heart Beats
Steffaloo returns with a new Mush full-length, Heart Beats, her first all electronic release. Over the past two years, Steffaloo has made a name for herself both with her guitar, voice, and tape-hiss based releases Meet Me In Montauk, and Would You Stay, and with a series of guest spots for releases of electronic producers. With Heart Beats, Steffaloo calls in production favors from some of her friends and collects them for her first all electronic release. Whether on Chrome Sparks' Italo Disco inspired "Eyes For You", the Jesus & Mary Chain influenced production of Stumbleine on "You're Not There", or the myriad of electronic styles producers Sun Glitters, Different Sleep, Eliot, Slow Magic, Moon Bounce, Nknwn, Gracie, Andrea and Shak contribute, Steffaloo's voice and personal songwriting shine through. Heart Beats is the release fans of Steffaloo's work with producers Blackbird Blackbird, xxyyxx, Sacred Animals or Germany Germany have been waiting for.
|Steffaloo is giving those fans what they have been craving. It’s an impressive undertaking - The Deli / I can say with little doubt that this has just become one of my most anticipated releases for 2013 - Indie Shuffle / The results, unsurprisingly, are awesome - Turntable Kitchen
|Steph Thompson, aka Steffaloo, is set to return with a new record, the all electronic Heart Beats and has just released the first single from it, 'Eyes For You'. It's definitely a departure from her poignantly spare lo-fi guitar based album from last year, Would You Stay. This time, rather than lending her vocals to others in their electronic endeavours, she has reversed the trend and enlisted artists to hers. Again collaborating with Chrome Sparks (Jeremy Malvin), 'Eyes For You' is arguably the best track they've done together with its downbeat beginning metamorphising into a measured dance pop gem. Thompson penchant for musical collaboration characterises Heart Beats with each of the 12 all electronic tracks being collaborative works featuring the likes of Bristol producer Stumbleine and Luxembourg based wiz Sun Glitters. - Indie 30
