LA Priest (which for anyone worried, is pronounced ‘Lah Pree-st’) may not mean much to you right now, but given a couple of plays of the single 'OINO' above, and you'll soon find yourself infatuated.
The brainchild of the reclusive Sam Dust (also known as Sam Eastgate), LA Priest is his return to the public eye having been away for some time. Dust had previously been in the band Late Of The Pier, who released one album, 2008's Fantasy Black Channel, before disbanding in 2010.
According to the Domino Records press release, since then the artist has been "studying the effects of the Ivittuut region's electro-magnetic phenomena on recorded sound" before going on to say that he has been "producing more than five secret uncredited projects - some of which have already trickled out into the world to public acclaim."
Regardless of how we got here, now we have 'OINO' and we're all the better for it. It's some sort of electronic future funk (is that a thing?) and features some glorious guitar riffs. It's another track that I'll be blaring loud this summertime, and I can only hope others will join me in hitting the high notes.
Oh, and there's only one other LA Priest song that's been released to date, and that came in 2007.
If you're confused and intrigued by it all, then trust me, so am I. So much so, when tickets for a sole London gig at the Electrowerkz went on sale, I made sure to purchase mine, solely off the strength of just one song. Here's hoping that further material lives up to my own lofty expectations.
