Vitalic – Poison Lips
Pascal Arbez, AKA Vitalic, creator of the decade-defining La Rock 01 and the equally ace debut album OK Cowboy in 2005, has been pretty quiet for the past few years. Back this year, finally, with a follow-up album called Flashmob, Poison Lips is pretty typical of the sound. Atmospheric, brooding, almost creepy electro that, while not moving tectonic plates to the extent that OK Cowboy often seemed to, hits the spot and sounds a class above anyone else still ploughing this particular furrow. The video complements the noises perfectly and is, as ever, below the click.
