peaking lights - Lucifer (Original)
We hardly need to tell you how much we fell for Peaking Lights' debut album '936', so there's a fair bit of excitement buzzing around the band's follow-up, not least as it sees them move from indie dance petri dish Not Not Fun to the Domino-affiliated Weird World imprint. Thankfully the kooky duo's lo-fidelity charm is left intact, and while there's a polish to 'Lucifer' that certainly wasn't present on its predecessor; their signature CRT flicker still makes each song fizz and shine. If it's at all possible, 'Lucifer' manages to take the duo's sound into even more horizontal places, blending echo-laced dub electronics with the kind of downtempo Space Age Bachelor Pad Music that Stereolab used to capture our hearts with back in simpler times. Indra Dunis's coos curl distinctly through the electronic percussion and tape-saturated organs with a hypnotic intensity, breaking what might be songs down into lucid dreamscapes and haunted vision quests. We're reminded of Moonshake, Neu!, La Dusseldorf, Colourbox and Cabaret Voltaire, and what Peaking Lights have managed to achieve is to distil all of these influences and emerge with a coherent, addictive sound all of their own.
