Garden Dog Barbecue
Those who followed the evolution of GoGo Penguin since their 2013 breakthrough album V2.0 will already be familiar with 'Garden Dog Barbecue', a floor-friendly slab of ear-pleasing exuberance that first appeared on "45" a few years back. Here the track is given a much-needed clear vinyl reissue, backed with the laidback, piano-rich loveliness of 'Hopopono'. While that's good, 'Garden Dog Barbecue' is even better, with the Manchester combo adding bold, ear-catching piano riffs - tracked instinctively by Nick Blacka's double bass - to a typically sweaty, skittish breakbeat. It remains one of the trio's most effortlessly effective dancefloor numbers and is genuinely worth picking up.
