Raid, Hercules and Love Affair.

Raid, Hercules and Love Affair.

Having outed the altogether superlative Do You Feel The Same? now several weeks ago, Andy Butler’s Hercules and Love Affair today unveil the single’s punitive flipside, Raid. Instrumental but for bursts of rabid soundbite that might as well have been recorded of a particularly ferocious night down and out, out down in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District, that blitzed sirens and banging techno complete the piece only consolidates the impression that this is perhaps one better suited to a destructive Friday than it is a recuperative Monday. Nevertheless, it simultaneously reinforces the conviction that Butler et alii are slowly, yet most pertinently surely, returning to their very best. All of which bodes rather well for all involved, really…

Do You Feel The Same? is taken from Hercules and Love Affair’s upcoming full-length, The Feast Of The Broken Heart, which is expected May 26th on Moshi Moshi.
