Siriusmo’s Enthusiast marks the beginning of a very fruitful summer for Monkeytown Records. The German label, run by Modeselektor, is responsible for almost every release from Siriusmo (real name Moritz Friedrich) in the past three years, and this month’s new LP continues Monkeytown’s tradition of putting out the freshest sounds that Berlin has to offer.
Enthusiast features some previously released tracks, including the opener, Doctor Beak, a playful, funky, and undeniably minimalistic type of track which sets the stage for the rest of the album. Friedrich widens the smile on your face with his next track, appropriately named Congratulator. It’s almost hard to believe how joyful, groovy, and uplifting this song really is.
