DAN SARTAIN: Century Plaza: CD

Picked this outta the pile purely because of the label it’s on, which is run by a former member of Flux Of Pink Indians and has a history of releases quite varied in sounds. Dark, minimal synth is what you get here. It’s at its best when things are kept slow—rumbling deep and almost cinematic—with things getting progressively grayer and less effective the further it strays from that formula.
