LP - Windbreaker - Faction
A solid mix of dancefloor-ready sounds and somewhate heavier synth atmosphere from Windbreaker –a solo project by Nick Read of Chicago electronic experimentalists Lazer Crystal! Windbreaker's got a pretty unique vibe that part neon-tinted dancefloor, part moodier, hypnotic allure – with maybe just a hint of Suicide influence, but not nearly as sinister or foreboding as that. Strong stuff from the Chicago DIY scene! Titles include "Glacial Maximum", "Polar Vortex", "Same Song", "Toba", "Leichter" and "Acropolis".
