Stately electropop from the Canadian chanteuse. Her running collaboration with Jeremy Greenspan seems to free the Junior Boys producer to explore odder aspects of his lush production. Against The Wall has driving synth bass but buries the snare and drifts into ethereal synth wobble at points. Lanza shines. She typically chooses to provide hooky, ephemeral counterpart to the chilly base, yet when she flexes her soprano, as she does on the chorus of the album's title track, its apparent she would sit atop an alternate Top 40 for the lonely.
LA Club Resource
Delroy continues a meteoric 2013 by seizing the means of production for himself. No nonsense, no press, LA Club Resource presents a functional new sound from the Southland. The first track, at 120 BPM, is slow compared to his recently preferred ghettohouse tempo, but introduces a fractured funk to the palatte. Two minimal synth lines, a simple double-snare hit and an unpredictable kick are all you need to move a floor. The B veers closer to the acid maze Funkineven travels. The vocal sample concluding the record is in-line with the cutty, street imagery associated with the label. Available in select few US brick and mortars.
