Lackluster: Container: 7 mag Review


The first album release for Focus, and it is as you might expect - warm and cleanly produced electronic music. Lackluster seems to have a knack for capturing simple but exquisite melodies that linger long after the album is through. This, married with the subtler aspects of rhythm, make for a thoroughly enjoyable listen from start to finish, with no filler fodder. The evocative 'Catch 22' perfectly represents the feel of the album, with it's eerily timeless keyboard sounds, although it can get funky, too, as with the barking bassline of 'Trullcakes' or the dubby 'Dooba'. Time to catch up with the Focus label if you haven't already done so.
