World Contact from London trio Virginia Wing's debut album Measures Of Joy, due out on Fire Records in November, could be the missing link between Young Marble Giants and Warpaint that musical archaeologists have been searching for. It's graceful, sinuous and sexy with vaguely sinister undertones. There's something about it that leaves you feeling a little ill at ease, like you've entered a nightclub managed by David Lynch. If the rest of the tracks on their debut are as good as this they'll be fighting off album of the year nominations with a stick.
