Boomkat Product Review:
Glasgow's ever-brilliant Night School return with a new album from label head honcho Michael Kasparis under the Apostille alias. To date he's nurtured this sound with split releases alongside Meddicine and Dnbl for C.O.A.T. and Clan Destine in parallel to actions with The Lowest Form and Please, but all energies are now focused on 'Powerless' with the intention to "bridge the gap between audience and performer, to connect through the fog of power structures and post-modernism; to ferment a direct pop music unconcerned with control." What that means in reality is a cranky clutch of lo-fi, synthy songs drawing on classic DM and Suicide and peppered with the kind of sidelong diversions we'd hope for from the man who has released records by everyone from Julia Holter and Yong Yong to Rose McDowell. Placing swarthy machine rockers such as 'Control' next to the keening drone harmonics of 'Worry', and the hard-bitten funk of the 'The Collector' next to blunted dirge-pop 'Panic At The Train Station', it's somehow a very coherent yet willfully wayward album bound to resonate with lovers of vulnerable underground pop music.
