Let's take the main disc of Tosca's Dehli9 as read, hum, heard. It's a en-live-nend extension of the last Dorfmeister/Huber album Suzuki, meaning it uses musicians of the none binary persuasion. It's vibe-rant stuff and worthwhile. But it's the second disc of the set I'd like to draw attention to. A series of piano chopsticks, reminiscent of Brahms (and Lizts), that sit uneasily beside the Uber-cool electronica of disc one. Don't dismiss these ebony and ivory riffs and spasms for their challenge, in fact, make bosom pals of them - they are significant. Digitally processed music is taking a shift toward seriousness, meaning that the likes of Tosca and Aphex and Calix and so many are conscious of the Viagra-like potential of noise, to effect and transport, that they can master greater emotional hits than making hips swing or fingers snap. They can attempt to equal the Classical Cats, they can make music that has reach. Don't fear the noodling, don't sweat the flats and sharps, take dissonance by the hand - not everything has to be POPular or underground. Applaud Tosca's tinkling

Enter the bespoke ease of Richard Dorfmeister's ultra-lounge bohemia. Disc One ticks off the louche-bang on boxes for a happening album, touching base with retro-tronica and dub-dreamy chill, and has enough edge to snag your ears on. It's made clever by the deft compositional skills of Mr Huber, so state of the art of right now, he's laminated in bright white melamine and has both acute angles and curves. Disc Two is brilliance, stand-alone. Huber on piano, improvising, knocking-out riffs and rifts of baby grand noise and Dorfo picknmixing the stuff into grandeur. You can't go wrong. Buy it.
