Spacek Vintage Hi-Tech
- Words: Joe Rice
- Label: !K7
It seems the Courvoisier r&b that used to be the purview of our older, more normal siblings' bedroom missions has now become our downtime soundtrack. Spacek are a London trio on their sophomore release, providing an angular and unexpected work of neo-soul-that focuses on the neo. "Life is like a bassline," Steve Spacek sings (almost whispers, really) in songs both knowing and personal. The beats (by Spacek, Morgan Zarate and Edmund Cavill) are deceptively minimal-seemingly simple, yet rewarding subsequent listens with unexpected sound design and a decidedly non-retro approach to arrangement. Nothing here swings like their debut single "Eve," but Spacek are still a jaded clubber's best friend.
