STATIC STATIC: The Future Is Dark: LP

Static Static’s first album was a bit more of a guitar affair. Here they are letting loose a lot of keyboard electricity into the atmosphere and have created thoughtful levels of electronic synth punk. No matter what’s going on, the album has a solid hum. Each song has ambience resonating in your skull regardless of speed. It creates a fuzz haze you’ll be glad to stick your head into. If you’re a fan of Digital Leather, this is a good album to consider. It’s an excellent soundtrack for arriving home late after avoiding trouble or contemplating the many storms of Jupiter. In other words, late-night music. I think you know what I mean by that. –Billups Allen (Space Taker, spacetaker.com)
