It's interesting to see a sort of artistic turn Anja Schneider has taken with 'Jimmy', her latest EP on her own Mobilee Records imprint. Featured on the release are two tracks called 'Jimmy' and 'Lovetube Thinking' that, while still in the same realm of her style, are much more emotionally charged than her usual stuff.
'Jimmy' is a tropical and quite Balearic sounding tune that follows a similarly sombre line to that of the one in 'Dubmission', the title track from her last EP. Bongos, congas, crunchy shakers and repetitive toms drive the drums while spacey organ chords provide a pleasant melodic element.
'Lovetube Thinking' opens with a more classic Schneider sound, a very rounded bass line and a punchy kick, and evolves into a track that's much clubbier that the A-side. The backing track on it's own, with it's one note acid line and pads, would actually be quite bland but it's the vocal from Patrick Heym saves it from nonchalance.
Overall, the two tracks are built for taking things down a notch and both are strong in their own right. It's a good release from the Mobilee boss who seems to have had a pretty successful year this year, both with Mobilee Records and also as an artist.
