Brighton Music Blog End of Year Top Twenty, 3 – Eagles for Hands / Handprints/Glitterall

Apparently Eagles for Hands double A side single Handprints / Glitterall was Laurie James Ross’ first official release, which is a bit odd since Lisbon was in our top ten last year. Handprints is even better than Lisbon – joyous house music  with a liberal sprinkling of vocal hooks, plenty of cowbell and even more bass. If Handprints was the soundtrack to the dancefloor being filled, then double a side Glitterall was the sound of the chillout room, with huge slabs of marginally out of phase synths  which unsettle you slightly and make the track feel much bigger than the sum of it’s parts. Either track on it’s own would have put Eagles for Hands in our end of year list, but it’s the union of the two which gives it such a high placing.
