Album released 10/10/2010
Louis Jones, the musician behind Spectrals is due to release his debut EP through Moshi Moshi Records on October 10th; entitled 'Spectrals Extended Play', the EP is a collection of new and previously unreleased songs.
From the town of Heckmondwike, 10 miles south-west from Leeds, Louis is softly spoken with a shock of ginger hair. Brought up of a mixture of 60 & 70s soul, motown and doo-wop, Spectrals' influences include Phil Spector (hence the name), Diana Ross & The Supremes, The Isley Brothers alongside garage rock.
Having previously released singles with Captured Tracks (Dum Dum Girls, Wild Nothing, Ganglians), Suplex Cassettes (Teeth!!!) and Tough Love Records (Health, Male Bonding, Becoming Real), the 'Spectrals Extended Play' shows a progression in Louis' music. Recorded completely on analogue in a local studio, there is a notable difference in the production on the EP and his previous bedroom-esq recordings.
