Album Review

Reviewed 2013-11-12
Dreamy electro. Switch out drum machines for real drums and you have shoe gaze dream pop. Take away drums entirely and you have ambient “bladerunnercore” narco wash. Fast forward to the last two tracks and you have Eno’s Music For Airports. As it is, it sounds safe and fit for college student consumption: Nothing challenging, all sugary and sweet, kinda bordering on Muzak. However the last 3 tracks veer from the recipe, are dynamite ambient. I can see this fitting into a variety of playlists here. Check out a band called Orange Cake Mix from the mid 90’s if you like the poppier first tracks.

1) (4:45) starts as lovely ambient shoegaze balm, airy female vocal washes, after a couple minutes an electro techno type beat evolves briefly
2) (5:27) instrumental, dreamy electrobeat, upbeat, ear candy/wallpaper
3) (4:35) cheery feel, vocals
4) (4:43) synth drone forebodes something, but alas, all is safe when a slow beat and mini-melodies appear
5) (5:58) starts with some interesting ambience, an early Alan Parsons type synth slowly enters, but then the “cheery synthy” stuff takes over again for an oh-so-much-muzak feel
6) (5:28) this has a nice change: kraftwerk simple beat, more subdued, with simple vocals, dreamy and quite nice, leaving the Muzak behind
7) (6:22) space drone, simple melody over looped ambient wash, lovely
8) (5:42) very Eno’esque, slow dreamscape of four looped tones, fantastic.
