NOT IN STOCK
"Seemingly not wanting to be pigeonholed into any one genre, Datassette's first full-length album is an action-packed journey through many different styles and moods that maintains a satisfying quirky inventiveness throughout. Opening with 'Vapour Trails' the listener is bathed in layers of machine-made sonic textures contrasted against super heavy bass stabs, sharp dubstep-tinged rhythms and playful synth passages that wouldn't sound out of place on a Metro Area release. The initial slow-paced opener then migrates into electro territory as the listener is treated to a sparsely populated rhythmbox landscape which is gradually infested by an array of peculiar sounds wriggling their way into view. On the home stretch, the pace slows down a notch with Datassette's take on minimal: 'Damage Report' goes deep and dishes up a helping of contemplative rhythmical chord progressions, percussive pops, clicks and 8-bit bass stabs. Finally, 'Melting Faces' brings proceedings to a close with an electro lullaby that provides a luscious ending to this refreshingly rich album.
