Hercules And Love Affair “ Hercules And Love Affair “ (DFA Records)Hercules And Love Affair - a child of the influential American sound recording company DFA Records responsible for a fashion on a new disco which also name a disco - the punk. Besides the brightest representative of style - groups LCD Soundsystem - the company also works with noisy nju - jorkskoj command The Rapture and in large quantities makes remixes for the colleagues anyhow focused on dancing fate, whether it be Gorillaz or Nine Inch Nails.
Songs for the project “ Hercules And Love Affair “ composes red nju - jorksky DJ Andy Butler. Even if the main vocalist of the present would not be involved in work on an album, it would be fair to note the unique feeling of a disco peculiar to mister Butler. We will tell, the play “ Hercules Theme “ - An example of crystal cleanliness of a genre if it has appeared in one collection with Cherrone, Dzhordzhio Moroderom, Arthur Rassellom and Donna Sammer, anybody and would not suspect that it is record of 2007.
however the main weapon new a disco - formations - a voice Anthony Hegarti, the leader of group Antony And The Johnsons. Own command of mister Hegarti promises to let out the third number disk not earlier than autumn. But not to tell, that admirers have already begun as - that actively to take offence at an idol. Anthony - one of the most demanded kameo - vocalists. Already after an exit of epoch-making disk Antony And The Johnsons “ I Am A Bird Now “ (2005) it has added own paints to David Tibeta, Bjork and Mark Almonda`s albums, has participated in tribjute Joko It and in record of the collection of piracy and sailor`s songs “ Rogue ` s Gallery “ and recent EP Michael Keshmora “ The Snow Abides “ sounded already almost as new creation Antony And The Johnsons. But here that nobody expected from Anthony, so this disco - records, even taking into account deep historical relationship of a disco and the gay - cultures which Anthony, to put it mildly, is not alien.
five songs Hercules And Love Affair in which the voice Anthony is used, confirm that has been told more than once: he/she is that person who can make gold of any record. And it is a question not only of a starting single “ Blind “ the clip on which represents a mix “ Kaliguly “ with Malkolmom MacDowell and “ Mums “ with Lyudmila Gurchenko. It seems that a vocal Anthony under a skin at all these songs even if it is not present on one path.
