Blackest Ever Black serve up a double dose of Tropic Of Cancer goodness this week, with the fresh material from Camella Lobo complemented by this Archive: The Downwards Singles 12". The smarter cookies out there will glean the content from the title, with BEB gathering together the earliest Tropic of Cancer material issued through the DO sublabel of Karl O'Connor's Downwards label. These three tracks were recorded in Tropic Of Cancer's original iteration of Lobo and Juan 'Silent Servant' Mendez, a time when the band was exploring a more explicitly bleaker, hazier sound. The motorik stomp and yelping Mendez vocals of closing track "Be Brave" remains a thrilling experience to sink into.
