Clue To Kalo - Come Here When You Sleepwalk
In common with the excellent Icelandic group Múm and a bunch of artists on the Plug Research and Morr Music labels, Adelaide's Mark Mitchell is part of a new digital generation who take more inspiration from late-'80s indie, particularly dreampop, than the usual electronic curriculum. Feyness is a constant threat, but Mitchell's British debut generally tiptoes clear of whimsy, mixing up the guitar loops, squitting beats and genteel vocal angst in a way which becomes insidious. An introspective companion piece to the barnstorming Manitoba album (see p 120).
