Welcome To Sideways is the fifth studio album by British electronic duo Simian Mobile Disco, released on 11 November 2016. After touring wrapped up for their previous album Whorl, the duo took a short hiatus in 2015. James Ford produced albums for Foals, Mumford & Sons, Florence & The Machine, The Last Shadow Puppets and Depeche Mode, while Jas Shaw built a new studio at his home in Kent and released a series of solo EPs born out of experiments in the studio.

UK electronic duo James Ford and Jas Shaw (aka Simian Mobile Disco) are about to kick off their A Form Of Change World Tour tomorrow in the much celebrated cathedral of electronic music that is Berghain in Berlin. From there, SMD will do 25 shows across Europe and here in the USA, see dates below. If you haven’t heard their recently released A Form Of Change EP on Wichita Records, the 4-song EP comes from the same recording sessions as their album Unpatterns. You should pick it up, or at least have a listen.

Made using pretty rudimentary remixing tools, We Are Your Friends not only won Justice some contest prize, it established them as a force to be reckoned with. The prodigal duo almost completely gutted Simian original with the same audacity that would make their debut album such a monolith a few years later. However, despite the drastic re-imagining, Justice, always rockists at heart, preserved the original’s fist-pumping immediacy, a detail too many remixes neglect.

Otherwise, Simian isn't going to have too many friends. Chemistry Is What We Are worked because of the mixtures: electronic beats, chunky rhythms, and beautiful melodies with harmonized vocals. The first three songs blew you away. Someone said it was like Aphex Twin meets the Beach Boys, and that was as good a description as possible. The music sounded as if they were experimenting and almost making it up as they went along. On this album, every song is unerringly the same: a little distorted bass, jumpy drums, and far too many bad lyrics. They sound like they're trying to get radio.

Simian were an English band, who started out making folky electro but are better known for their electro-pop songs, especially "La Breeze", which was featured in a Peugeot 1007 commercial. Their second album "We Are Your Friends" was produced by the legendary Brian Eno. The band split up in 2005 with James Ford and Shaw forming the splinter group Simian Mobile Disco.

Notes

Promo 12-inch after the remix contest on the track "Never Be Alone" organized by the French IASTAR/Radio Campus network in 2003.
Justice's own remix did not make it to the final selection of the contest but caught Pedro Winter's ear and contributed kickstarting his own Ed Banger Records imprint. The rest is history.
