Judging by the chirpy modulations of this track, could the title be alluding to 80s analogue party popper Vince Clarke? There's something of a particularly fizzy episode of Tomorrow's World going on here, one where Maggie Philbin ends up gatecrashing Jimmy Sommerville's Dad's Hornby Model Train Society christmas party with a futuristic orange liquid and a robot cat.

106 BPM. The most Balearic of all the BPMs. Dublin born Lumigraph spent his summer in Brooklyn, and if this is the result, he certainly found the party where the cool kids be. How different things could have been, if he'd taken the wrong invite, ended up surrounded by Frats playing beer pong, high fiving each other, mistakenly believing they were at a competition, rather than a party. It happens, I've been there. Union Square. That was me, in the corner, acting all Michael Stipe.

If NY 5 piece Caveman opened a restaurant, and I came back reincarnated as a rat, I'd set up resident by their kitchen bins, happy in the knowledge at any moment they could toss out something as rich and delicious and totally not-throw-away as this as B-Side.

Nepotism rules. My mate Tom directed this video. We're all very proud. Aunty Flo's been making Eccles Cakes and Derek's rummaging in his shed again. Fuck knows what he's doing in there. Last time, we had to get the fire brigade to remove his fingers from residue of City Farm Sheep he'd been converting into a sticky black tar - not too dissimilar from Scottish Guinness substitute Gillespies.

Com Truise seems to have smoothed a few of his more obtuse angles. This is a man not afraid to remix Maroon 5. Fearless fucker, or just perverse? Autotune vocals that actually don't sound rapey, and a general wehay we're all having massive bags of fun in an airbrushed 80s future make Declination rather a celebration.

FUCK YES!!!! Melbourne producer Griffin James has made the drums here so loud, so so loud, to the point that I'm dancing like a twat in the coffee shop I'm writing this in. Sorry everybody there.

Joel Hood has been filling his Soundcloud up with quality remixes of Phoenix and Tythe. Getway Car has the same woozy pleasure as a mancold, loading up on Manuka and an entire HBO series and then spending an entire day in a dressing gown. Except without the anxiety.
