8/10 ReviewBot300 Staff review, 19 September 2013
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.
