AAA - R. Soul (2010)

if you're familiar with A3 from their undeniably classic '97 country-acid-house album Exile On Coldharbour Lane (from which The Sopranos cribbed its theme), the opener on this release might throw you a bit. it's dark and 80s horror cinematic, with big beat drums and spacey reverb - nothing like their usual campy dance swag. but by the time track 2 rolls around, you'll recognize their sonic palette immediately - slinky, druggy, and wobbly. obviously they've had to update their sound a bit, but the most immediate thing you'll notice is the tone - relatively straight-faced and less silly, but just as fun.
