The opening track here from Seattle-based producer Lusine stuns. It starts with a tight Neu influenced drum beat with jittery synths, pumping bass and fizzy keyboards. It bounds along in that perfect place where studio electronics meet a more ‘live’ type sound. It sounds like all kinds of people, Ulrich Shnauss had a go at this type of thing years ago, as did Kreidler and plenty of others who I can’t think of right now.

It’s an auspicious start which is pretty much ruined by the next track which is a cover of Electronic’s ‘Get The Message’. You can literally hear the screech of the tyres as the momentum of the album grinds to a halt. They don’t ruin the track, in fact it’s a fair stab but it’s waaaaaaay out of context with what has come before. ‘Lucky’ carries on the vocal theme with a staccato slice of bleepy r’n’b which ain’t bad at all but does continue the schizo nature of the album by seemingly not flowing with what has come before.

On the flip ‘Another Tomorrow’ is a really nice slice of melancholic dance music beginning with FlyLo-style phasing synths and some neat beat work. More impressively, it has a lovely feel to the track, spacious yet with little ideas filtering through, an acidy squiggle, a neat chord change there. This seems to be where the album is at its best, playing it simple with good solid electronica, a genre producer Jeff Mcllwain seems to be extremely adept at. The vocal tracks sprinkled throughout are different in feel, yet impress to varying degrees. It’s just the flow between the varying styles that disarms a bit. I’m not sure what the solution is really, it’s a mixed bag, some things work some things don’t but it is all excellently put together.
