<b>The waking drum machine.</b>
Here is a very dreamy EP we received from synthpop duo Shaun & Andrea , better known as Symphonic Stereo , who debuted on the well-received Starving But Happier comp earlier this year.
For this release we have five songs of tranquilizing, reverberated vocals grounded by modest bass-snare-hihat drum patterns - lending to similarities with Figurine or perhaps The Russian Futurists under general anesthesia.
Standout tracks include the nicely balanced “Lorn/Tara”, “Come Over” with its upbeat vibraphone melody, and the lulling “Slowest Emotion” with a bass-driven melody and shuffling rhythm.
The group is also curating an upcoming mp3 compilation called Love Tara and has another netlabel release planned for later this autumn, so stay tuned.
