Steven Severin – “Unisexdreamsalon” – [MP3.COM]

This 2001 release from Siouxsie and the Banshees bassist Steven Severin is an collection of dreamy, cerebral electronica. For the most part, I consider this an ambient / downtempo album, with a few notable exceptions – the fast and drum and bass influenced “Sometimes” sounds like it could have been used on David Bowie’s “Earthling,” while “I Persuade You” is a cover of Throbbing Gristle’s “Persuasion,” and “Sometimes” is certainly a window into Severin’s past. The opening track, “Typhoid Mary” sounds a bit out of place on the album, and parts of this feel like unfinished outtakes at times. However, overall this is a very pleasing album and the ambient/downtempo tracks are quite good.
