Automato – They’ve Got A Pebble In Their Sock!

LABELS UK are delighted to announce the release of the debut UK single by AUTOMATO, whose forthcoming self titled album was produced by production mavericks the dfa, currently spearheading the New York dance punk revolution with bands such as The Rapture, LCD Soundsystem (and most recently NERD remixers and Liquid Liquid producers).

WALK INTO THE LIGHT will be released on 12″ only on March 29th, and features five tracks:

  • Walk Into The Light
  • Walk Into The Light (Instrumental Version)
  • Walk Into The Light (Acappella)
  • Walk Into The Light (Revolutions Remix)
  • Walk Into The Light Revolutions Remix Instrumental)

The single is followed the following week (April 5th) by the release of the band’s eponymous debut album. Featuring eleven tracks, the album mixes up 70’s funk and soul, a solid amount of early 90’s indie rock, organic hip-hop beats and syncopated lyrical exploration. Reference points are as likely to be Andre 3000 as David Axelrod, Can or Common, The Pixies or Pete Rock. The full tracklisting (in all its stunningly named glory) is as follows:

  • Focus
  • The Single
  • My Casio
  • Walk Into The Light
  • Gold Of Desert Kings
  • Cool Boots
  • Hollywood And Vine
  • Capes Billowing
  • The Let Go
  • How To Read A Person Like A Book

The band make their live UK debut in April. Details will follow.
