**Sweet, slick retro-modern synth-pop from New York's premier cold wave stable Wierd Records.** This might just be the most direct, accessible and open-hearted record yet to come out of the minimal synth revival - from the opening track, 'Hazy Haze' a lo-fi yet epic girl-group anthem that sounds like summat Phil Spector might've produced if his only tools were a mic and a couple of kit-built synthesizers. A couple of cuts lapse into electroclash-by-numbers, but even these are lifted by the quality of songwriting, the infectious guitar-playing (which variously summons Johnny Marr, early Cure, 154-era Wire, John McGeogh's work for Siouxsie), and of course Brittany Terry’s wonderful pure voice, which effortlessly navigates 80s new wave sass and quivering 4AD-style drama. If you've enjoyed recent offerings from Frank (Just Frank), Austra, Tropic of Cancer and Zola Jesus, then give this one a whirl...www.boomkat.com
