WARM DIGITS aka Newcastle based Andrew Hodson and Steve Jefferis released their acclaimed third album Wireless World on Memphis Industries.
In the words of legendary DJ/producer Andrew Weatherall, Warm Digits create “Machine funk kraut-a-delia – it’s rather lovely!” Warm Digits' brew of live drums, guitar and electronics betray a love of Neu!, Kraftwerk, Giorgio Moroder, My Bloody Valentine and Boards Of Canada. Motorik percussion, electronic basslines, Keith Levene-style guitar chops and squelchy analogue warmth are accompanied by live visuals in performances that have graced the Psych Fests of both London and Liverpool, seen them support the likes of Goblin, Modeselektor, ESG, St. Etienne, Moon Duo and many more, toured the UK with British Sea Power and blown the audience away at Supersonic and many other festivals. Their blistering live sets of "krautophonic blizzard-wave" have to be seen to be believed.
For their latest record, the band have sharpened up the elements of their sound for a set of crisp, propulsive and melodically rich songs, and for the first time on selected songs have collaborated with some of their favourite vocalists: Peter Brewis of Field Music, Sarah Cracknell of Saint Etienne, Devon Sproule, and Mia La Metta of Beards.
The Line of Best Fit
"Warm Digits’ third album combines disparate parts of analogue warmth, Giorgio Moroder-esque electronic exploration and an often beautiful, battering propulsion."
