Niagara Vinyl, CD & tapes by Niagara at Norman Records
Niagara have been busy the last couple of years, with a string of releases on Príncipe, F T D, and now returning to Ascender with 37 EP. Highly limited pressing, and it’s as rough and ready techno as you get. Analogue blips and blurts bash out a monophonic morse code riding an almost over powered kick and hihat, all being surrounded by electronic fuzz. And that’s the opener.
Hyperocean is the third album from experimental pop eccentrics Niagara and rather than easing off, this record is more dense and intense than previous releases. These are dark and complex electronic pop songs with dizzying arrangements and plenty of experimental freak-outs. Available on limited vinyl LP and CD from Monotreme.
'Don't Take It Personally' is experimentalists Niagara trying on a variety of left-field tricks, marrying psych-rock to Eastern dance music and playing with a hell of a lot of synth. Tracks such as "Currybox" are indicative of Niagara's attempt to make irresistible hooks that are also thought-provoking, taking gloomy synths and pairing them with fast-paced beats and sleek spoken vocals. With its variety of different, equally-valued sound types, 'Don't Take It Personally' resembles glitch-pop that's been remoulded into something more structured and purely pop.
