Digitalism is not Daft Punk,
This review is from: Idealism (Audio CD)
The album is epic. It will open mind to many people who started with daft punk and went further to Soulwax and now are stumbling around in the nu rave scene.
The bass line is mark in many of their songs. But it's the background to develop a bracing progressive melody in each track. What began with Zdarlight goes up to immense heebie-jeebies while listing to "Pogo", particularly due to the great voice of Jence and continues in tracks like "Anything New" and "I want I want".
One sound band from my point of view is completely the contrary description for the tracks on Idealism. Each track is full with unknown creativity in electronic music. But not in way that you feel to choke on. It is round it is well-balanced. It doesn't sound like out of a 2nd world war bunker, it has air.
"If Franz Ferdinand made rock music that girls could dance to, then Digitalism makes electronic music that everyone can rock out to."
They are a new real Zdarlight in the sky, not a hyped up falling star.
