The MFA: Oranges & Lemons 12″ EP

The former Border Community and Bpitch Control duo return on Traum with their first release since 2009. “Oranges And Lemons” seems to glitch up the synths from Origin Unknown’s “Valley of the Shadows” to a jittery tech-house beat, and that totally works for me. Extrawelt take the same track and add a bit more kick to the beat, and maybe a little more dazzle to the synths, but don’t take it too far out of orbit (the original was great to begin with). “Panacea” is tart, bubbly, and fizzy, and a little offbeat since the snares are on the ones and threes along with the 4/4 kicks, but somehow it’s not as distracting as you’d expect. “One Way” is a deep glider with some slightly prickly synths and warm melodies. A stellar comeback.
