For the latest release on his constantly impressive Apron imprint, Stevie "Funkineven" Julien has looked to Bristol for inspiration. Lend Me Your Ears marks the debut of new production twosome LMYE, a mysterious collaboration between two people that met at the city's record store Idle Hands. They start with "Cali 76", an intriguing fusion of techno kicks, wonderfully loose percussion, woozy guitar samples and dashing Rhodes notes. They push things up a notch on "Pays To Be Pushed", where exotic sitar lines and dreamy pads ride bumpin', garage influenced grooves. Interestingly, both cuts are notably different from either producer's solo work, making it harder to easily guess their identities.
