Cuthead - The Sinner

With Uncanny Valley's second release, the label's name makes perfect
sense: this crew of musicians from the Dresden Elbe Valley has a truly
uncanny knack for the particulars of American house. You could figure
that much out even without Kelli Hand's guest vocal on Jacob Korn's
"Dance Away," in which the veteran Detroit producer and DJ sends shout
-outs to "Dresden house heads" alongside Motor City figures like Omar-S,
Mike Huckaby and Detroit itself, repeatedly. Detroit, Detroit, Detroit:
it's easy to get hung up in hagiography, but when the homage is made
with this much obvious love (and talent), everyone wins.
