DAT Politics - Villiger
DAT Politics is a laptop quartet from Lille, France. An offshoot of the much whispered about French post-rock group Tone Rec (of which three of these four guys are members), “Villiger” is a album of sharp, densely arranged electronic product. It’s an amazing picture of where electronica and pop music meet, a jaw-droppingly consistent instance of glitchy electronics and massively processed tones wedded to a more traditional musical heritage. The tracks range from miniature exercises in digital sound processing to full-blown beat-driven electro-pop songs, each track blazing its own stylistic trail as it develops.
