Boomkat Product Review:
Flying in the face of fashion, clearly Toronto's Medard Fischer feels no compulsion to abandon the world of eat-heavy, home listening electronica. Just about everything here, from the opening 'I'm All Vectors' (use of the word 'vectors' in a title is a dead giveaway) to the rather salaciously titled 'Miss Wet T Shirt Vancouver 2006' is unashamedly unreconstructed IDM. Of course fashion means very little if the execution is good enough, and there's no disputing that Fischer is an expert in the field. The crystal clear digital sound worlds on No Spectre are populated with glistening computerised percussion and overt melodicism, the sort of material you'd find on labels like Toytronic or Spezial Material at the peak of their powers. Electronic music is often criticised if it sounds as though it hasn't followed trends of the times closely enough - perhaps it's to do with the music's inextricable link to continually advancing technology - but in guitar-based pop music, there's no such condemnation made upon artists looking backwards, revising old forms. Arc Lab manages to give IDM a squirt of his electronic Fabreze, revitalising and refreshing the genre a little as he goes.
