LOAF 15 


Much been said about Vincent Oliver in the past eighteen months--his unique approach to songwriting fuses the quirky lyrical elements of DIY pioneer R. Stevie Moore and Arab Strap's Aidan Moffat and musically treads the thin line between the shoegazing electronica of Pygmalion-era Slowdive and the utter pop of New Order's Power, Corruption, and Lies. His two first EPs on Loaf are the work of a young songwriter with infinite pop potential. EP3 concludes Oliver's bedroom recording series with reinterpretations and remixes from some of his most notable fans. 
 
Nathan Fake, Border Community's young star and Oliver's tour-mate, lends a hand to rearrange the blissfully confusing "Cluods in the Haed" into a psychedelic techno affair that has been getting dancefloor support from Border Community chief James Holden. Canadian Nathan Johnson, also known as Hrdvsion, chops Oliver's popiest moment into a chirpy clockwork math workout. 
 
Loaf's own Andrea's Kit takes the epic "I Want it All" a notch down toward a heavy, analogue-synth bloodbath, while Morr Music's Isan (who recently collaborated with Oliver on the lovely "Brave the Cold" from Loaf's Christmas compilation That Fuzzy Feeling) morphs "Drunk Fun in London" into a reverb-drenched waltz. The orchestral piece, "If Yellow Were Sad," gets a droney makeover from post-rock veterans Rothko, and to conclude, Oliver includes an extended live version of the EP2 crowd-pleaser, "Her Doorbell." 
 
On a historical note, Oliver's EP1 was the first release on Loaf almost two years ago, so the label thought it fitting to conclude their award-winning limited-edition 12-inch packaging series with EP3. Artist Ivan Zouravliov, who contributed artwork for the latest Beck album and recently hosted solo exhibitions in Paris and Tokyo, here provides an illustration available only with the specially-packaged 3-inch CD version of EP3.
