Brothers Simon and Robin Lee have long excelled at the album format, delivering occasional sets that ripple with impressive musicality, sinewy strings, cozy downtempo moods and upbeat dancefloor moments. Body of One, their fourth full length (their first dropped on Nuphonic back in 1997), continues this trend, offering a compelling trip through the pair’s myriad influences. After opening with a sweaty post-punk thumper (“Prisoner of Your Love”), we’re variously treated to Italo-influenced vintage house (“Magic Touch”), rubbery disco-funk (“Freak For Your Love”), Arthur Russell-influenced tropical downtempo pop (“Caruso’s Monkey House”), dreamy Balearica (“Floating World”) and string-laden gorgeousness. As for the title track, it sounds like So-era Peter Gabriel.
