Segueness III

[Segueness is a curious random occurrence where two tunes ultimately beat as one]

Lovebabies were signed to Richard Branson’s V2 label for a short time in the late nineties. I bought their ‘Blue Earth Angel’ EP cause I liked their name and the look of the cover. Never know what to expect with these things but the aural smoothie that poured from the speakers snagged my attention immediately. ‘Resonance/Divine Plan’ as you’d expect evolves over 2 parts, the second being as essential as a St. Etienne/Morcheeba hybrid should be. Cinnamon from Sweden were operating around the same time as Lovebabies and released 2 undervalued albums. ‘Maybe In The Next Life’ came from their second called ‘Vertigo’. There are traces of early Cardigans wizardry and the instrumentation is particularly clever. See if you can trace the moment during these two songs where segueness becomes a reality. KD
