Being the office "electro boy", even though our Ant probably has 10 times more decent electro wax than me, I find myself the cheery recipient of not one, but two vinyl LPs on the Weird Records label. The first I'm gonna have a go at is by Led Er Est. I'm not sure how purely electro it actually is but there's definitely an angsty 70's/80's cusp mood, a distinct cold wave feel to it's disembodied EBM strut, blurred echo chamber vocals & stentorian synth lines. I think there's some fantastic icy melodies on this album, strangely poppy songs that either march or gallop, some seriously out-there new wave delirium and with the current popularity of the excellent Cold Cave, this is just the ticket to keep the braying masses quiet for at least a couple of weeks. Once again I have to reference the amazing early 80s Trumpett label here, 'Dust On Common' is very much inspired along those lines, with nods to pioneers such as TG & Fad Gadget, employing a pooting analogue sound as a template & layering this deep veil of authenticity over the top! Deliciously motorik, steeped in an intense melancholy & knee deep in irresistible melodies - this is FANTASTIC!
