Century Plaza by Dan Sartain

One Little Indian release Dan Sartain’s record of snotty, no wave electro-pop. Century Plaza is available on vinyl LP and CD and is a sleazy ode to synthesizers, cheap drum machines and Alan Vega. Sartain’s witty lyrics and out-of-time croon update his beloved synth pop icons with style and energy.

2/10 Dubversion 18th February 2016

Suicide proved that marrying electronic grooves to rockabilly vocals can be a blast. But Dan Sartain is no Alan Vega and nothing on Century Plaza is a Frankie Teardrop (the Wipeout Beat cover here is dire). Sartain used to be great: he looked like the kind of charming, flick-knife comb sporting hoodlum who’d steal your beer and your girl but leave you smiling anyway, and his Speedo-sanctioned garage-billy was sharp and romantic. But this electropop / chillwave sidestep is risible: Drive soundtrack outtakes with Sartain sounding lost and out of time on top. The only thing worse than the cover art is the Halen-esque shredding on First Bloods. Avoid at all costs - go listen to Gun Vs Knife instead.
