The best break-up with your boyfriend/girlfriend band has also recently had more line-up changes than the Bush cabinet. But L‘Altra ticks on with somber ballads constructed from trad indie-pop elements and heaps of electronic rinse. “Soft Collapse” features the soothing coos of Ms. Lindsay Anderson pasted over wonderful digital symphonies. “Bring On Happiness (Slicker remix)” features John Hughes‘ best backwards drum tricks and other rhythmic betrayals. This moody music makes me happy.
