- The Way Things Fall by Adult

Adult. have been away a long time. They used to be favorites in Norman Towers before we got the internet and things like that. They are known for providing the kind of minimal electronic retro-future pop akin to then popular likes of Ladytron and Client. Cold and calculated, synths squelch and bleep, vocals sit somewhere between Siouxsie and a robot.
This is what the future sounded like in 2006. I’m not au fait with their music enough to be able to tell you whether or not this lives up to past glories, I’d sorta suspect not, but taken on its own terms it’s an album of reasonably upbeat electronic tunes that hark back to the early ‘80s days that none of us seem to be able to let lie. ‘New Frustration’ bucks the trend of the opening few tracks by being a bleak slab of existential synth that sounds like early Depeche Mode covering Joy Division...with a lady instead of Dave at the vocal helm. You get the odd instrumental passage here and there...and it seems with that I’ve kind of given up on it, the cover depicts people fallen over as a lot of their other records do.
