[NEW MUSIC]: SOLVENT'S 'SUBJECT TO SHIFT'

May 25, 2010

[NEW MUSIC]: SOLVENT

More than most, Jason Amm’s work as Solvent embodies the original ethos of “synth-pop”: that is, hook-laden music built lovingly out of the buzz and hum of analogue synthesizers. Solvent’s newest full-length on Ghostly International—his first in nearly six years—is called Subject to Shift [click here for more info], and its title reflects the changing tone of Amm’s music. On Subject to Shift, the “cute, happy robots” of 2004’s Apples & Synthesizers are few and far between, and in their place is a mix of dystopian, acid-tinged futurism and bittersweet romantic ache.

Buy Subject to Shift at The Ghostly Store on 2xLP, CD, or digital download.
