Review

A continuation of his kaleidoscopic sun-dappled cosmic-disco, Neon Leon was the much-loved CD-only sophomore album by Sorcerer. Just in time for Spring/Summer, we present the first ever vinyl issue, released as a deluxe double LP. A perfectly formed suite of ten tracks featuring soft guitars, subtle synths and lightly grooving percussion, Neon Leon magically evokes that elusive summer feeling throughout. The guitar-driven “Algorhythm” serves as the album opener, blasting bold, sun-drenched jazz chords atop bright synths and groove-based drum programming. “Ride The Serpent” and “Distort Yourself” are guided by a more sultry, slo-mo disco impulse whilst the staggering “Chemise” and strident “Face It” merge 80s West Coast production sheen with Sorcerer’s trademark laid back, gentle disco. “Raydio"’s undeniable head-nod groove adds a rare vocal to the proceedings, joyously combining with the bubbling cosmic funk.
