LISTEN: Wet Dog by Cantaloupe

10 May 13 words: Paul Klotschkow
Exclusive first listen of a track taken from the brand new 12" out soon on Hello Thor Records

It's fair to say we're pretty excited by Splish/Wet Dog from Cantaloupe - it's the very first 12" single on Hello Thor Records and we reckon it's a sexy Krautrock disco banger.

Cantaloupe's music has variously been described as “a pulsing electro-Krautrock workout”, “Super Mario Bros meets Brian Eno” and a soundtrack for “smiling robots who dance exclusively to disco-affected art rock and afro pop”.

The single is out on limited edition (300 only) 12” vinyl and digital download on 17th June, following the band's European tour, but before that folk can get it at a special pre-release party at the Chameleon on Saturday (11th May), featuring live sets from Cantaloupe, I Am Lono and The Cusp, with live visuals from Kneel Before Zod.

Entry is £4 on the door, but special advance tickets (costing £6 and including a copy of the 12") are available from this link.
