Boomkat product review for:

1991 - High Tech High Life (Cassette Edition)

**Limited copies available again to coincide with the Vinyl pressing - housed in colour J-card with insert. Utterly breathtaking debut from 1991 - mark our words, you're going to be hearing a lot about this one.** The undoubted highlight of Opal Tapes' 2nd batch, and quite possibly our year, 'High-Tech High-Life' is one of the most striking debut releases we've heard in 2012. It's the first offering from the enigmatic 1991, a yung'un from Gothenburg, Sweden with a lushly endearing feel for the kind of misty-eyed ambient and new age nostalgia that makes Boards Of Canada, Oneohtrix Point Never and JD Emmanuel such evergreens on our bedroom shelves. In the finest sense of an album, 'High Tech High Life' absorbs from start to finish, from the trickling shivers of 'High-Tech Low-Life' to 'Alaiyah''s angel's breath kiss off, traversing the sort of lump-in-throat melodies and gauzy atmospheres that dreams are made of in between. It really needs no further description, just check the samples and trust your instincts; they'll be paid off in kind.
