Boomkat Product Review:
The latest electronically oriented popsters to emerge from the Moshi Moshi camp are Silver Columns, a UK duo comprised of none other than Johnny Lynch (of the Pictish Trail) and Adem Ilhan (of, er... Adem). These confirmed folkists have taken something of an unexpected turn in putting together such an unashamedly poppy, plugged-in album together, but undoubtedly it's a move that pays dividends. Both parties have been known to dabble with electronic hardware previously, but never before has it sounded so brash or urgent as on opener 'Cavalier'. Drum machine hits and bloopy background melodies fly about all over the shop in fine, hyperactive style while the two artists play tag team with their vocals. It's a thoroughly lively and charming affair - all achieved without the safety net of proper instruments. The pop goodies keep flowing with the ace 'To Wake You', whose heavily vocoded chorus and brittle production style invites parallels with the moonlighting electronica of Vampire Weekend side-project Discovery. Equally, as electronic, danceable pop music goes it wouldn't be too much of a stretch to consider Silver Columns as offering a slightly scaled down take on what Hot Chip do, particularly given the strength of tracks like 'Always On', the excellent 'Columns' and 'Heart Murmurs'. The album concludes with an especially fun finale, and by the time closer 'Way Out' reaches its orbiting chorus the duo sound like a they're cross-pollinating Animal Collective and the Lion King soundtrack. There's much to enjoy here, and it's great to hear these two musicians cutting loose, yet clearly Yes & Dance represents more than a mere distraction from their main projects.
