Soulwax - From Deewee— Si Sharp -
I like Soulwax, but I’ve often wished they would just admit that they’re better at electronic music than they are at being an indie band. Their best album is still Nite Versions which is just dance versions of their previous album. This album is them meeting me halfway. This album is synth heaven. The songs are decent enough but my god the sound. This is easily the best sounding record of the year. Everything from the analogue synths to the drums (live but produced into the same electronic sound as everything else) to the vocals is perfectly layered.
