Lackluster: Container: Wax Review


The spirit of Clear lives on with the new UK electronica label Focus, and their first album release from the beautifully gentle Lackluster. Fifteen tracks of twinkling melodies, soft, soothing electronic rhythms, all bathed in an almost childlike innocence and the kind of wistful longing that could make you think, at least for the length of this album anyway, that there are no bad men. Sounding a bit like an electronic cross between Bagpuss and the Clangers, and with titles like 'Thor's Magic Bathtub', if everyone listened to this the world would probably be a better place.
