Oh Warp. Still releasing some cracking records amongst a few poor ones. How will their latest signings bear up? The music is analog sounding electronic pop with lady vocals. Listening to a record like this you start to realise how good Broadcast actually are; The space in their music, the amazing production (last album excepted). This aims for similar territory but is a little over polished and comes out just like any other band messing around with synths. Track 3 'Ghosts' goes into affected early '80's guitar mode and is a little better for it though the vocal melody is straight from a Joy Division song. 'Sleepwalkers' has a decent catchy melody and vocally recalls Dubstar of all people. Phil says that after his third listen it is starting to grow. 'Sleepwalkers' is definitely the highlight. Overall although the release is not bad at all just not exceptional or different enough to rise above the hideous amounts of records coming out each week.
