I’ve just listened to the new Richard Youngs CD which has subtly but irrevocably warped my mind for the day, so it’s nice to have something a bit less demanding to fall back on afterwards. Today that something less demanding has come in the form of this sub-tle CD which, as I had hoped, is not just a clever name.
As I’m learning from the press release right now, sub-tle is the alias of Berlin sound artist Satoshi Okamoto, right hand man to the late Klaus Dinger, and he doesn’t hurry himself - this is his second album under the moniker and his first in five years, with Mouse On Mar Andi Toma twiddling the knobs. It’s a twinkly electro acoustic soup which falls somewhere between the sun-bleached ‘80s-obsessed synthpop that’s been so popular lately and more reflective instrumental pieces.
Sometimes there’s silky synth and guitar and breathy ‘doo-doo-doo’s from guest vocalists, sometimes tasteful interplay between strings and meticulously programmed electronics and delicate synths. It’s all rather wistful, introspective stuff for when you’re sitting at home with a stiff drink and a problem on your mind. Detailed and soothingly melodic. I like it.
