Solvent – “Apples & Synthesizers ” – [Ghostly Interntional]

Toronto-based Jason Amm, aka Solvent, takes a break from his own Suction Records label to release his fourth album of retro synth-pop on Ghostly International. The instrumentals are very Kraftwerkian in feel, though the tracks featuring Amm’s vocodored vocals (3, 6, 7, 9) sound a little bit more personal. Of the latter, ‘My Radio? is probably the hit, with its infectious bassline, melancholy melody, and wistful lyrics about radio’s past. It’s all quite sweet, but not saccharine.
