Dark Matter

Since 2007 ex-Curve member Dean Garcia has been ploughing a shoegaze furrow with SPC ECO. Icy electronic textures and loping beats give knowing nods to Massive Attack, whilst Rose Berlin’s heavily autotuned vocals provide Dark Matter with a suitably emotionless overlay. Out on CD and vinyl from Saint Marie.


A subtle fuzz shrouds most of SPC ECO's 'Calm', echoing a gentle threat that runs throughout its duration. There's a strange Garbage-like swagger to it, but this is juxtaposed with the kind of ethereal atmosphere My Bloody Valentine conjure up. Diverse and surprising electronic tinged rock music for right now.


It’s great when you hear trip-hop done well, filling the gaps left by Massive Attack et al. SPC ECO (Pronounced Space Echo) do it with feverish charm, and don’t miss a beat. Whilst you are tempted to say ”Hello again 1997 era Portishead, always a pleasure.” they do breathe new life into it, and update it for 2016.
