Boomkat Product Review:
Left_Blank's electronic pop stable displays its latest filly - a collaboration between Old Apparatus producer, Asher Levitas, and Norwegian avant-garde musician/vocalist, Linn Carin Dirdal. Making lofty allusions to The Cocteau Twins or The Knife could set them up for a fall, if the production and results weren't of such a high calibre. OK, she's not Liz Fraser and he's not Olof Dreijer, but they're shades away, whether cleanly vaulting in the gyroscopic halfstep cyber-pop of 'Against Interpretation' and the etheric spatial simulations of 'Shae' on the A-side, or given to the sheer R&B melodrama of 'Your Sword Is Your Silence' and stepping 6 feet off the ground with the Laurel Halo-like 'Dearth'.
