The fourth release from Palms & Charms sees the return of label co-owner Barnaby Bruce; ruminating on the perils of fine fabric care. We've all been there, a lengthy session on the dancefloor playing havoc with the pile of your velvet coat. Faced with this dilemma, Barnaby reaches for the battered volume, passed down through untold generations of his family, detailing archaic yet uncannily effective methods for extending the life of even the most exquisite textiles. As he does so, the percussive jazz-tinged boogie of Sweat on Velvet takes over his mind, unleashing a wave of dancefloor euphoria. Not to be outdone, Pete Herbert (Reverso 68), unveils his own masterful fabric care techniques, providing a remix that will starch your collar and shake out the creases. Not the same clothes, but something brand new. Freshly attired, Barnaby begins to notice curious and somewhat unsettling noises coming from the next room. He gingerly opens the door, and is confronted with a seance in full swing. Strangers sitting around his dining table wait with baited breath for word from the other side. But the unearthly howling of tortured spirits is quickly silenced by the devilish groove of Seance Fiction. As the ARP makes its entrance, every soul is up and dancing. Finally, Barnaby Bruce also provides the eminently useful Go Go Percussion Dub of Sweat on Velvet â€“ rounding out a sartorially elegant EP with something for everyone, from sceptics to lost souls.
