Boomkat product review for:

d'eon / grimes - Darkbloom

HIT's latest is an electronic pop marriage made in a simulated heaven, pairing Montreal's D'eon and Grimes on a most delicious split with Arbutus Records. Both artists are relative debutantes to the scene; D'eon dropping his 'Palinopsia' LP to widespread acclaim in 2010, and Grimes recently arriving to much fanfare on her spellbinding 'Halfaxa' LP - one of our favourites of the year so far. While their styles are rhythmically rooted in opposing spheres, they share a kindred taste for boldly emotive pop music drawing on the ethereal electronic melancholy of late '80s 4AD releases and mid-'90 dance-pop without forgetting that they make music in 2011. Grimes contributes five exquisitely wyrd and windswept cyber-pop programmes, none more effective than the jaw-dropping 'Urban Twilight', scouting the sprawl with Ed Rush style sentinel drones while her vocals appear to plot spiralling vectors in the polluted synth hues of a Metropolitan night sky. D'eon's four tracks are helplessly, and brilliantly, diverse but again dominated by one outstanding example in 'Thousand Mile Trench', a previously unimagined fusion of skittering Footwork drums, luscious R&B harmonies and time-suspending chords, next to the light-footed dBridge-like 'Tongues' and one of the finest uses of mobile phone signal distortion on 'Telepathy'. Ostensibly, these nine tracks are pure pop, but there's an experimental undercurrent to each one which we urge those who find the "P" word offensive to check out at the nearest opportunity. Highly recommended!
