LOW STOCK LEVEL
"Colder return with the exceptional new album Heat. The album features slick production, harking back to the style of PIL and Suicide yet with an unmistakable 21st Century sound. Where his 2003 Colder debut, Again, proffered seedy seduction through bottom-heavy Can-style hypno-grooves, on Heat he breaks down the rhythms into minimalist Joy Division machinations. He's still speak-singing like a street hustler breathing inappropriately on your neck, but there are flickering signs that his blood is starting to thaw: the percussive rumbler 'Downtown' is a playful nod to Suicide's zombie rockabilly, while the mournful Tindersticks-esque ballad 'Fade Away' marks an emotional breakthrough: the sound of a statue's stoney eyes starting to tear."
