ACR Loco


limited edition 'first press' random colour lp + download

Released: 25th Sep 2020


‘comeback albums’ can go one of two ways – a cheap knock off of past glories or a radical reinterpretation of the underlying talent that made a band interesting in the first place – acr are firmly in the latter here on this unbelievably good disco-not-disco romp.

The mancunians are no stranger to a groove, and ‘acr loco’ sees them at the most dancefloor ready. Perhaps the biggest masterstroke here is their host of guests, which includes gabe Gurnsey of factory floor and maria & gemma of sink ya teeth who, in their day jobs, rinse early acr for inspiration. Here, they take their own honed style and complete the feedback loop, pumping a modern take on ACR back into the mix, elevating the already incredible songs to a new level. The end result manages to look forward and back at once, with touches of nitzer ebb, new order and soft cell shoulder to shoulder with factory floor, LCD soundsystem and caribou.  A simply sublime achievement, and one that should win over new and old fans alike.
