- Dracula / Closer by Vondelpark
My memory, at the best of times, resembles a sieve. Phil, despite having a million things running through his brain, recalls that I liked the previous 12” from Vondelpark. I had no recollection until I looked up my review from way back in 2010. The reason my memory is failing to jog is perhaps because this record is so different from their previous output that it’s like comparing a toilet cistern with an apple pie.
Then they produced a melancholic brand of electronic pop with nods towards New Order and Kreidler, now it’s bleak icy electronica that repeats over with one eerie synth stab and a booming bass. The beats are rudimentary but do the job and the track has an air of cold isolated melancholy. The B side is even more baffling, just a thumping 4/4 beat throughout but somehow sounding as if the beat was being chewed up by a particularly enthusiastic dog. There is the odd vocal sample here and there but how they got from that to this is anyone’s guess.
