"Mindreading finds (in mind's eye) Singer drifting away from the abstruse structures that knotted their debut, morphing into a distinct refinement of their former sound. Following the departure of Todd Rittmann (for Dead Rider space), Singer is now a three piece band made up of charter members Robert A.A. Lowe and the Vida brothers, Adam and Ben. Singer still pops on Adam's abstracted beats, but this time, rhythms are keyed by analog synths and licks courtesy of Lowe and Ben Vida. Group vocals, a democratic fundament to Singer since the start, highlight the songs, at times fingering the languidity of soul music; and diverging in an exchange both restless and copacetic. These men are playing their songs-with-singing collectively, agreed in a new social music. The pleasure of experimentation underlies every direct move made in the name of pop entertainment, with different meanings and readings intact. It all lives as one."
