Dan Sartain Century Plaza on LP + Download

Staring out from the cover with (non-artificially) blackened eye, paranoid android Dan Sartain goes back to the future for Century Plaza – a new album of darkly nuanced electro-pop, released via One Little Indian in February 2016. While Suicide and Alan Vega have long been acknowledged influences (a cover of "Wipeout Beat" features) Century Plaza finds Sartain trolling the British synth-pop wave of '80-'84 – particularly Depeche Mode - for inspiration, opening the record with a funereal remake of "Walk Among the Cobras."

Lead single "Sinking in The Shallow End" offers up further provocation, indulging a truly truly outrageous Van Halen-inspired guitar solo (notably the album's sole concession to the instrument). Crepuscular synths and metronomic beats dominate songs like "Cabrini Green" and "Feigning Ignorance" – either could have been pulled off a Blade Runner or Escape From New York soundtrack in a parallel universe – while "First Bloods" and "Black Party" are pathological US teen anthems that serve Dan Sartain's particular brand of charisma especially well.
