Boomkat Product Review:
Superior minimal synth-pop and art-disco from the unflappable Billie Ray Martin and new collaborator Robert Solheim. It's right in the zone of that recent Soft Metals album, not to mention Xeno & Oaklander's Sentinelle and Glass Candy's B/E/A/T/B/O/X, but of course Martin has been it a lot longer than those lot, and there's an authority and assurance to the singing, songwriting and production on this album that marks it out from the crowd. There's no shortage of darkness, or of concept either: each song is about a different social misfit or damaged soul, with accompanying images from photographer Wolfgang Tillmans. This is a world of bodged plastic surgery, tranquilizer addiction, forgotten reality TV "stars", lonely transvestites - the nightmare flipside of Hollywood and the dangerous dreams it disseminates. If you've a soft spot for Chris & Cosey, Eurythmics, Yazoo and the rest or just need a good soundtrack for driving down Mulholland Drive at night, you're onto a winner here.
