Boomkat Product Review:
C.A.N.V.A.S. alum and Actress collaborator Olan Monk shifts to AD93 for this lo-fi pop gem, continuing the open-hearted outsider strangeness of last year's "Auto Life".
Like Rainey Miller, Irish singer-producer Olan Monk is dedicated to the creative potential of AutoTune - something explored thoroughly on the humorously-titled "Auto Life". On 'Can't Wait', Monk's doomed tone is lifted by the robotic warble, but the mood seems to have shifted now. The gothed-out electroid mood of "Auto Life" has been bleached out by the sun, and Monk almost sounds upbeat when he sings "I need to chase what I can't believe in." Orchestral and endearingly clunky, it sounds like a demo version of New Order and the Happy Mondays recording an answer to Massive Attack's 'Unfinished Sympathy'. Comes with a vocal version and instrumental.
