The debut album from Rich Machin and Ian Glover is a magisterial affair full of haunting, cinematic keyboards and noir ambience. The opening track, “Cabin Fever”, sets the tone?instantly recalling a post-acid house Tangerine Dream, or one of John Carpenter’s analogue synth scores. The best tracks find them teaming up with Spain vocalist Josh Haden, who brings his unique brand of wasted melancholia along for the ride. “Rumblefish”, in particular, is desolate as hell. Cry me a river.
