With releases on Frustrated Funk and Shipwrec — including last year's 'North Bend' album — Chris Roman's spaced out, eerie take on electro is starting to get more traction. This release features the brooding bass and brittle percussive hiss of 'Overbrdige' and the snappy rhythms of 'Keep Right', which provide the most overtly dancefloor-friendly iterations of Roman's sound. Soon afterwards, he retreats to the depths, thanks to the prowling bass and nightmarish melodies on the title track and the cold, robotic 'Greenbelt'. It's an exemplary release.
