A truly amazing tour de force from my dear old friend Morgan Bryan and his group, V-sor,x. Amazing synth riffs,which touch all bases from kraftwerk in the 70’s  to the latest sounds of Chemical Brothers and leftfield with hints of Neu! and scandanavian synth, all eloquently wrapped in intelligent grown-up lyrics and the essential otherness which epitomises the Bryan mystique.

Amazing video! Dragged is a eulogy to the desire to keep going, keep up with your artistic endeavours even as we approach old age… You stay young and avoid the ravages of age, by doing the things you love.

 

 

I just love this track! and a superb video! Very reminiscent of the Kraftwerk vibes, it simply revives and rebuffs the sounds of Kruatrock. When I first heard this I played it eleven times over and over, Just like a latter day John Peel, it blew me away like Teenage Kicks did it for Peel.

I also really love track 5. The Return. It reminds me a lot of Blue Foundation’s Sweep of Days, which is in my top ten all-time list, so this is very high praise from me… but probably means nothing to most people.

If you like synth rock music this is an album you really need to check out.

Dale.
