- Hero Crisis by Depth Affect
9/10 Brian Staff review, 05 June 2008
Now my computer has stopped being a git I can do this review of French avant pop-hopsters Depth Affect's newie 'Hero Crisis'. It's the 2nd long player from these guys and I'm inspired lots by the blend of emotive chords, playful rapping, sharp beats & catchy rhythms. It's a warm, glitchy odyssey through the eyes of some progressive heads who ditch urban politics in favour of gleaming hooks and cerebral, euphoric keyboards, keeping it light & textured throughout. Taken as a whole it's an immensely satisfying listen throughout, transcending easy pigeonholing. I can't pick an individual track out as it flows so well, keeping the mood fairly buoyant throughout. There's a real twinkly music box feel to this album with heavily processed samples lending an air of carefree magic to proceedings. If you like highly melodic European electronica & experimental hip-hop with lots of pop twists then I'm confident this CD will give much pleasure to those with a keen ear for audio escapism. I can't even draw any parallels with other artists as it's all really fresh sounding! Proper quality, CD only on Autres Directions in Music
