Low Red Center

(Instincto)

Minimal is the mantra for Low Red Center. This beat-assisted self-titled LP screams 1970s New Wave, with repetitive female vocals conjuring Cabaret Voltaire and Xex. That mantra insures tempos rarely change from song to song, but there are some standouts, including "Sun Outside," where B-52's meet Björk inside a broken drum machine.
