Review

Sitting somewhere between Brandt Brauer Frick and Guillaume & The Coutu Dumonts, Brooklyn live-minded trio Archie Pelago have yet to drop a record that doesn't take generic boundaries and burn them down to the ground. Powered by rainbow shades of jazz, sharp craggy spikes of techno and sparkling flurries of lush electronica, this EP is their most adventurous to date. At over 30 minutes and five tracks, it's also their most generous. Vibe-wise the title track sounds like Harold Faltermeyer getting remixed by Aphex Twin while "Neighborhood Mephisto" continues the 160 tempo with an organic, string and horn heavy emphasis. Elsewhere we get spiritualised by the mournful cries on "Saturn V", we're KO'd by deep sax wheezes on "D's Diamonds" and experience the band's perspective on Detroit's legacy on "Chilly". Beautiful.
