The Minneapolis phenom with his third release on Ben Klock's label. The title track is gorgeous, deep melodicism, based around a soulful set of synth chords which come into greater definition over the course of the track's 6 and a half minutes. Each percussive moment feels huge, no snare, just a well-timed 909 clap. That clap reappears on the more minimal but slightly swung "Creeping". "Spying" is late night techno gear, a bright piano figure creates a perfectly illicit vibe
Modern Love Demdike Stare are really taking it there with the Test Pressing series. This might be the most punishing issue yet. "Procrastination" starts like a cantankerous engine, slowly. Eventually, a comically heavy beat and bassline are issued in by a lion's roar. No joke. "Past Majesty" is more of a head-down deathrock thing, interrupted by blasts of noise. The track bears the influence of Albini's gnarly units Big Black and Rapeman.
