Padded Cell’s Night Must Fall

I usually steer clear of anything smelling of disco-breaks: the thought just bores me. But with Padded Cell’s new release, Night Must Fall, I see a bit of a U-turn on the horizon. There’s something really interesting going on here: it’s a cocktail of 80’s swank laced with woozy narcotic undertones and flecked with snappy drum loops: weird, undeniably dark and ominous, but nonetheless pretty damn satisfying. There’s no attempt to squeeze into the endless lines of disco artists queueing up for recognition: the group — formed from the ashes of Bronx Dog and Dirty Beatnik — have almost created a niche unto itself, filled with bursts of live instrumentation, marching beats and breaks, and a mature, but wild, swagger that can only be born out of a flat-out rejection of the oh so normal norm within the broader genre. Expect psychotic saxophones and chugging bass riffs walled in by a claustrophobic synth-rich backdrop: you’d get down to this on any dance floor.

Recorded a cool, fun, funny, or inspiring video (or even better, all of the above!) that you'd love to have more people see? Well, we'd like to see it. And if we dig it, we'll turn it into a Found At E Minor (FAEM) video for our Facebook audience to enjoy. Check out this awesome recent example and submit your videos here!
