FOLKTRONICA. A term that strikes a soggy, depressing fear into the hearts of anyone with an ounce of life left in their their body. A melding of genres that always turns out so dull, so worthy, so downright fucking un-punk that Coldplay probably listen to it on their gold plated, diamond-encrusted NASA iPods while they're power walking down a neverending, constantly unfolding red carpet in their Gucci jogging bottoms. Somehow in this day and age Rist have managed to make an album in Weekend that can only really be described as folktronica, yet somehow manages to actually be pretty damned good. It's a hugely bright and breezy affair, proper holiday sounding. After I suggested that it sounds a lot like Fridge, Phil expanded upon that with 'Fridge crossed with Judith Chalmers', which pretty much says it all. Prettily plucked guitars. dreamy synth washes, and light beats all mean that on paper this should be the worst kind of coffee table shite but somehow they've managed to transcend the trappings of their own little ghetto here. Good job guys! It's pat on the back time! Oh yeah, this also features remixes from .tape, taunus and Greg Davis. Oh yeah again. it's from Malaysia which is interesting isn't it? On Mu Nest! On CD! The end!
