Microscopes – Points of Interest (2010)




  • Lo-fi 
  • Space pop 
  • DIY 
  • Indie pop 
  • Bedroom pop 
  • Synth-pop 
  • Art pop 
  • Soul

Comment: given that the issue was released in 2010 and while listening to the duo`s music I would like to assume their points of interest are closely Zeitgeist-ridden drawing on lo-fi and DIY approach which made a renaissance in the beginning of the 00s. Moreover, their music does away with sterile studio production and even incorporating hirsute and noisy developments into the 11-track mix. Dusty or spaced-out synth pads which used to come in and go out and Fred´s singing rather in high registers add an extra value to the blend. At times it is soul, at times just deranged mumbling out of a bedroom, at times like an example of proto-house. On the other side, it involves every kind of classical pop tendencies so by matching the two aforementioned tendencies the result is intriguing enough as have showcased such lo-fi luminaries as Ariel Pink, and R Stevie Moore and many more before the year of 2010. The favourite tunes of mine are artsy Wolfman, and Child`s Play. The issue is a part of the discography of Vulpiano Records.
