Boomkat Product Review:
Fantastic new LP from German innovator Burnt Friedman on his own Nonplace label. 'Plays Love Songs' contains 10 fairly melodic but stealthily experimental pieces of post-electronic pop and accoustics. Geniunely unique it is constantly evolving; a nonrepetitive subspecies of 'techno' that recalls the grime and sex of funk and soul without using the usual retro signifiers, speaking a different language but still hollering 'get down!' to those with ears to hear. Light years ahead of the lazy appropriation and quantized rhythmic tedium that dominates computer based music in general. This unlike anything else, wonderfully well done, warm and jazzy and full of tricks and twists that demand repeated listening. Highly Recommended.
