Review: This new record from Automatic Tasty finds him move away from his usual pastoral acid sound and into a more DIY, bedroom pop realm with him on the microphone. It's a melancholic work that draws obvious parallels to Hot Chip, but with an extra air of curiosity and naivety. There is a dreamy vibe to the opener then a gentle party feel to 'A Happy Town,' lovely laziness to the bendy synths of 'Wake Up Dead' and more urgent feel to 'These Days'. This is utterly charming music that could have been released 30 years ago, today, or 20 years hence and still sound fresh.

Review: Amid a ton of releases on the likes of Wrong Island and CPU in recent months, the legendary recovering optimist Automatic Tasty now flings a full album upside our faces. His ninth long'un, as always it's both jaunty and contemplative in equal measure as he tweaks his machines to create bubbling little narratives that weave in and out of the shades. At one moment you're weeping to a sartorial lament ("Illegal Trousers"), the next you're skipping on clouds on a secret level in your favourite childhood side-scroller ('One Of These Days'), the next you're doing the locomotion on Tomorrow's World ('Dialup') the next you're rolling out the lino for a slo-mo robo dance ('Scaldy Fiver') Slinky, cheery, honest analog fun; You'll Never Work In This Town Again isn't a threat... It's a promise

The Future Is Not What It Used To Be
Cat: CPU 01011100. Rel: 05 Nov 20
  1. The Future Is Not What It Used To Be (5:20)
  2. Romance In The Old Country (4:47)
  3. Rising Sun (4:31)
  4. Adventures In The World Of Becoming (4:41)
Review: Jonny Dillon AKA Automatic Tasty lands on Central Processing Unit for the first time with an EP that is far from typical of the Sheffield label's output. While there are nods to the label's usual sci-fi electro sound, the majority of the tracks draw more influence from electrofunk and, more obviously, the deeper end of the 1980s synth-pop spectrum. For proof, check opener 'The Future is Not What It Used To Be', whose robotic vocoder vocals, chiming melodies and Chris Lowe style chord progressions gives the track an 'overlooked 1988 Pet Shop Boys B-side' kind of feel. Elsewhere, 'Romance in the Old Country' is atmospheric, warming and bittersweet, 'Rising Sun' is giddy and cheerful, and 'Adventures in the World of Becoming' sounds like a long-lost, late '90s Plone track.

Fieldwork EP (reissue)
Cat: LDR 1010. Rel: 07 Jul 20

  4. Field By Night (4:20)
Review: As Jonny Automatic Tasty Dillon prepares to release his sixth studio album A Farewell To Reason, Lunar Disko take us back to 2012 and one of Jonny's many discographical highlights "Fieldwork". An EP of four stages, the concept takes us across the day using Foley sounds. "Field In The Morning" is a bright, bouncy piece dusted with birdsong, "Field In The Afternoon" is a warmer, more energetic piece of acid house, all bleepy and relentless with its rolling drums, "Field In The Evening" brings a more sobering reflective note while "Field By Night" climaxes with an intense acid rave-up, like all the best days spent in fields should. Eight years old but still as timeless as ever, Tasty has always lived up to his name.
