The cheeky Chilean is back with a new album, four years since his delightfully eccentric 'Ay Ay Ay' on Kompakt. 'The Visitor' continues his idiosyncratic style taking cues from new wave, proto-house, seductive Latino beat heritage and European electropop, effortlessly oozing fun and creativity.
Compared with his stunning interactive audiovisual environment, 'Stellarscope' is tarred with the deterministic constraints of the recording medium. Nevertheless, the innovative talents of Vinyl Williams are still a pleasure, a hypnotic haze of synth pop, a fine remix with ex-Stereolab members Europe51 to boot. Nice!
Arthur Ashin releases his sophomore album after his self-titled debut made a splash in 2010. 'Anxiety' is as emotive as his debut, his deranged version of glossy r'n'b mixed with glittering synth-pop production is extremely well done and reaches a near-catharsis over ten tracks. Perfect for all those nights you can't go to karaoke.
