Londons No Bad Days and Montreal’s Arbutus Records join arms and walk over the Atlantic together as one to release Graham Van Pelts stunning Sense Appeal. A sophomore release for the Toronto-based singer-songwriter, file this under Larry Heard-redolent deep house with the uncanny tenderness of Arthur Russells voice floating atop. On the flip we have three remixes called in from across the Canadian riviera. Yu Su applies her celebrated touch with a punchy club cut, while Gene Tellem goes full 00s with a big room pumper. Von Dutch caps and blue diamante sunnies sadly not included. Closing us out we have twin mix engineers Mark and Matt Thibideau providing a dubbed-out version of the title track, bringing it all full circle.
