This is the second collaborative release by electronic/avant-hop duo AGF/Delay (Antye Greie and Sasu Ripatti aka Vladislav Delay, Luomo), the follow-up to 2005's Explode, released on the AGF Producktion label. For BPitch Control, they present Symptoms -- futuristic pop music with singer-songwriter gestures and tons of depth. Continuing on from their previous release, Symptoms is AGF and Delay's musical reality check for a world turned upside-down. Snippets of sociological commentary are woven into a fine net of full beats, dubby textures, and tiny digital sound gimmickry. Greie's poetic vocals alternate between whispered sensuality and keening pop urgency, as the 11 songs try to come to terms with varying levels of emotional and intellectual awareness, isolation, and the apparently limited possibilities of mankind's development. Symptoms is meticulously constructed, with unstable beats, glitchy, metallic pops, pulsating dub-touches and snatches of samples that can sound nearly industrial -- both catchy and challenging. This is future-forward pop music for the 21st century, crafted by two artists that have both left their own indelible imprints on electronic music.
