studio-west%20coast.jpgAfter this year's earlier import release of the limited-edition Yearbook 1 CD, which compiled the 2006 West Coast 12" with two extra tracks, Gothenburg, Sweden's Studio have thankfully made the latter domestically available as a stand-alone disc. Boasting sunny percussion, spiky guitars and the occasional House-via-Madchester piano stab or (often very Cure-like) lead vocal, West Coast is the best kind of '80s throwback, reimagining balearic Ibiza dance-pop with a warped cosmic dub sensibility heightened no doubt by the duo's distance from both that era and locale.
