Strange World Beyond

(My Best Friend; US: 19 Jan 2009; UK: 20 Jan 2009)

Sticking to somewhat of a nautical theme Strange World Beyond plays to the steady drip of a leaking faucet throughout the album’s 14 tracks. The full-length record by miminal sound composers Fredric Möring-Sack and Christian de Jonquières promises to transcend the current techno scene with more timeless inclinations that wander into sound experimentation. The duo succeed at achieving something which is cohesive and intelligent while at the same time managing to vaguely amuse. All this while keeping to the elusive metronome out in the ether. Piemont is club music, but the kind of club I’d like to find yourself in—classy but not too elaborate, sophisticated but not too expensive. Pay the cover, first drink’s on me.
