Boomkat Product Review:
New single from Copenhagen/Gothenburg synth wave outfit Lust For Youth, RIYL Cold Cave, Crystal Stilts and all those stygian dreamers from the late '70s and early 80s repped by Minimal Wave, Dark Entries, etc today. Analogue house scenester Anthony Naples beefs up the anorexic sound of the source material but stays true to its core elements and overriding rawness; the resulting remix feels like roughshod EBM for the L.I.E.S. set. 'Saluting Rome' (Club Edit) is another LFY original, this time with some extra heft, led by a machine-gunning drum pulse designed to tickle the darkling fancy of NY goths and LA vampires, and likely to succeed.
