Description

Some rediscovery!! Oddball soul, funk, electro and new wave informed songs by the duo of Lee Tracy and his music partner/producer/manager Isaac Manning. They committed hours upon hours of their sonic and visual ideas to tape ( they recorded exclusively at home, live in a room into a simple cassette deck), embracing drum machines and synthesizers

Their ethos meant that every idea they came up with was at least worth trying: echoed out half-rapped exhortations over frantic techno-style beats, gospel synth soul, modal electro-funk, oddball pop reinterpretations, emo AOR balladry, nods to Prince and the Fat Boys, or arrangements that might collapse mid-song into a mess of arcade game-ish blips before rallying to reach the finish line. All of it conjoined by consistent tape hiss, and most vitally, Lee's chameleonic voice, which managed to wildly shape shift and still evoke something sincere – whether toggling between falsetto and tenor exalting Jesus's return, or punctuating a melismatic romantic adlib with a succinct, "We all know how it feels to be alone."
