Review

Those fully invested in the current US cold wave scene should be more than familiar with Chicago duo Valis, who's output to date has been restricted to some wonderfully avant remixes of contemporaries Soft Metals, Inhalt and //TENSE//. Formed of The Drum's Jeremiah Chrome and Josh Foxx, Valis are evidently fond of making statements with The Demolished Man not only the first substantial Valis release it's also their debut album. Listening through the ten track album, there's an obvious reverence for classics the classic synth-pop, industrial, and R&B of the 1980s (see the Yello style "ohhs" that punctuate "Pretty Boy/Lipstick") but it's executed with real panache and a knowing nod that can't help but suck you in. Apparently Chrome and Foxx scrapped two albums worth of material in the three years they were recording, and you cant argue they made the wrong decision after spending some time with The Demolished Man.
