Back in 2009 A group of Silver Jews and Lambchop members got together to form a new band. They called themselves Tim Chad and Sherry and self-released their début album 'Baby We Can Work It Out' later that year, catching the attention of cult alt band Pavement who invited them to play at their ATP festival. Now after much critical acclaim the group returns to the fold with an EP on London's Tirk Recordings.
'The Love I Make EP' is an oddly compelling mix of slinky, raucous rock, feet-dragging dadaist grooves and uplifting melodious soul. In describing their sound, the band says it best: "PSYCH DANCE. If Steely Dan, The Flaming Lips and R Kelly had a love child, you'd have Tim Chad and Sherry."
'The Love I Make' is the initial bolt of crushed funk on the EP, and it's this track that we've turned over to our cunning remixers, Afrikanz On Marz and Jamie Blanco.
Afrikanz On Marz is the joint alias of Ashley Beedle and Darren Morris. Their mix gets things ramped up into an elasticized slo-mo dancefloor frenzy. Jamie Blanco's 808 acid mix does exactly what it says in the tin with some bombastic kicks and 303 squelches.
The other mix is a Dub variation of the Afrikanz On Marz mix, and the original finishes off the package.
And no, none of the band is named Tim, Chad, or Sherry…
