The City of Angels has a serious sweet tooth, chewing on Dntel like bublegum, but savoring Languis for dessert. Languis' previous work unexpectedly merged minimal techno, post-rock and new wave into one disfigured package. However, this debut on the Plug Research label speaks indie-pop's well-trodden dialectics. Languis has grown out of their laptops into a full band using new wave as a starting point instead of simply re-enacting '80s posh tunes. The distant music of New Order is churned into elegantly understated songs, and Languis emerges way ahead of the electro-revival movement.
