We've got a solid bit of synthpop here from Seattle's Pillar Point on Polyvinyl. It's not too bad actually, it's quite sleek but still with a bit of a bedroom feel, housey rhythms that mix live and electronic drums and bright synth sounds, mixed at times with a trebly slicing guitar and smudged and deadpan falsetto vocals, more often than not keeping to a moody Pet Shop Boys-ish plod.

The shiny post-PSBs aesthetic is bound to draw comparisons to the likes of the Postal Service, Diamond Rings, Part Time and Passion Pit, but while he's not alone in making this style of slinky future-pop, Pillar Point still injects his own blend of weirdness into proceedings. Particularly impressive is the ear-warping 'Strangers In Paradise', a laid back r'n'b groove with weirdly throbbing synths and a chorus that's got a cool suspended animation waiting room dubstep wub thing going on.

Really imaginative but not overdone, this song avoids the heavy-handed and anonymous '80s pop pitfalls that Mr Point falls into elsewhere and sticks out as an elegantly realised highlight on a flawed but largely impressive album. Synthy bedroom falsetto-pop with a dancey and repetitive backbone.
