Boomkat Product Review:
Vancouver’s Regularfantasy (Ciao, Plush Managements Inc.) trips a fine line between shabby chic smarm and off-kilter, lo-fi dance pop
‘Condobed’ is their follow-up to a tape and 12” for Total Stasis in 2018. On one hand it trades in a sort of manicured shabbiness that we’ve heard a million times before, but on the other hand, there are sweet moments to be found in the sideways R&B of ‘Don’t Want Pain (Wetface Tribute’) with its pitching vocals and punchy drum machine, or the knackered slow house of ‘Never Wanna Let U Go’, and the half-awake boogie budge of ‘Life is Expensive.’
All in all, bit of a charmer!
