Boomkat product review for:

la vampires with maria minerva - The Integration

It seems inevitable that ex-Pocahaunted weirdo and co-founder of the Not Not Fun empire Amanda Brown (aka LA Vampires) would jump into bed with avant starlet Maria Minerva at some point. Their musical paths over the last few years have skated close to each other, and unsurprisingly 'The Integration' finds both artists eccentricities compliment eachother perfectly. The eroded dub that made Brown's electrifying collaboration with Zola Jesus so surprising is still just about there in the background somewhere, but it's slathered in the 2am neon charm that made an indie darling out of Minerva. It sounds to us like a common ground was also struck with Brown and Minerva's much publicized love of classic house music, and these bleeps, stabs and FM basses make up the backbone of the record, swirling in reverence to 1988. Album highlight 'Supercool' comes across like an Inner City b-side layered over an MTV sting, then taped from radio onto a TDK C120, and it's not just nostalgia that gives the track its bite - there's a genuine menace underneath those familiar sounds. This is deliriously sleazy stuff, and harks back to a time when things weren't so cut and dry - when dance music used to hint at a counter culture that was supposed to upset the balance. 'The Integration' captures this rebellious streak with a surprising ease, and gives us more than just a shred of hope for the future.
