Album Review: Pepe Deluxe Spare Time Machine!


Pepe Deluxe“Talk about a Jumble” are the opening lyrics of Pepe Deluxe’s 2007 release of Spare Time Machine. Pepe Deluxe hails from the capital of Finland, and consists of two main members; Vellu Maurola aka DJ Slow and Torni Paajanen aka JA-Jazz. Enough with the background, Spare Time Machine consists of many layers; vintage synths, rockin’ beachy guitar, funky horns, and hippy-bongo drums, possibly something out of a classic surf flick. But the most memorizing flavor of Deluxe’s ice cream sundae is definitely their understanding of space and vocals. The way these two intertwine, almost genetically, XY chromosomes or the meeting of sperm and egg, is beautiful. I am one who likes tripped-out, psychedelic phrases with lavish lyrics (The Mars Volta, Super Furry Animals, Animal Collective) that Pepe Deluxe is simply  an emotion to put memories to, and I thank them for that.

You can check out a couple of there sick ass  vintage 60’s sound, with clashes of psychedelic-funk with epic builds and robust, tripped out lyrics on MYSPACE.

Would love to see em live, but they haven’t updated their website for a year…

Cheers Anyway to Pepe Deluxe!
