Travel In Vain

July 28, 2009

Breezing effortlessly to the top of my summer playlist over the past weeks has been the reissue of The Units synth punk standard High Pressured Days on Relish Recordings.

For label boss Robi Insinna aka Headman, a longterm fan of the band, it can be seen as something of a personal triumph having tried and failed to include the track by the West Coast act on his 2003 Dance Modern compilation for Eskimo Rec.

Six years later, having finally made contact with the band and cleared High Pressured Days for reissue it’s out on a lovely looking 12″ replete with remixes by Headman himself and Rory Phillips.

It’s the latter we’ve developed a woozy lust for as Rory P flirts with the track as opposed to fucking with it, the results being the perfect amount of jerky discopogo for the dancefloor.

You would expect no less from a resident of the sorely missed Our Disco and Durrrr

The Units – High Pressured Days (Rory Phillips Remix)

Buy the vinyl from Phonica or the mp3s from Juno
