Over the past year, Stefan Schwander has released countless excellent 12″s on Italic, and appeared on Mille Plateaux, Output, Ego and ~scape compilations under guises like AG Penthouse, Pop Up (w/ Jorg Burger), Repeat Orchestra and Rhythm Maker. Love and Other Solutions finds him roaming from the crisp tech-house of prior full-lengths in favor of drifting, unanchored post-Kompakt musings that are appropriately searching but rarely find their destination. If there’s a metaphor to find in this, I haven’t found it yet.
