- Keep Warm... With The Warm Digits by Warm Digits
This duo's name has always made me think of putting my fingers where my fingers oughtn't be. Upon investigating their music, however, I'm very pleasantly surprised. It's hard to really know where to place this. It has krautrock elements but it kind of slots into that place in between electronic dance pop and organic rock where nobody's really sure what you are any more. This is a crisp-sounding and energetic record with lots of bright, trebly tones and propulsive beats. The recording is impeccable, too, with plenty of attention put into keeping the tones varied and interesting. I guess reference points would be the likes of M83 or the Chemical Brothers (who I'm not a big fan of to be honest, but these guys are working from the same tone palette) or at a push a less hyperactive Daft Punk, although those latter two especially tend to focus on pop-structured songs whereas this record is more in the dance mould structure-wise. This'd be a great record for a party, since it suits both dancing and chilling equally and it's not gonna offend those weirdos who aren't even all that geeky about music. What's up with those guys, anyway? When this record hits its stride it's a glorious union of guitar, drums, synth and computer that's really satisfying. It's warm. I dig it.
James said:If you like the record, you should check out the live show. Warm Digits are touring this autumn and are playing free in London on 25 October at the Old Blue Last. Declaration of interest: I am the promoter, but I love this record and this band!
