High Season is the title (and final) track from Poolside’s new album which landed last week, and features a load of pretty diverse collaborators including Satin Jackets, everyone’s favourite garage OG Todd Edwards and – most excitingly for me – Buscabulla, who can basically do wrong as far as I’m concerned. This is a perfect lazy summer BBQ jam, so couldn’t have been timed better for anyone living the UK.
You’d be hard pressed to find a record better suited to lazing around on a beach at sunset with a cold drink pressed into your hand. But given that no-one’s going on holiday any time soon – if ever again – your garden/balcony/porch/bedroom with the window slightly open will have to suffice. Regardless, this is evocative enough to whisk you away to wherever your imagination has the patience to take you. It’s taken from their debut LP Regressa, which is similar in tone to the Erika de Casier album from last year, and like that I expect this to be on hard rotation for most of the summer.
