B. Fleischmann Poploops For Breakfast

B. Fleischmann's work is for people who find the frenetic beats and spastic rhythms experimental electro annoying or boring. If you listen to recent Mouse on Mars and wonder "where's the hook?" or "well ten seconds of that song was nice," then come here. Definitely minimal, definitely progressive, Fleischmann is bridging the gap between cerebral ambient and a melody. Also out is a five-song EP called Sidonie, which follows the same brilliant formula with a dash more bounce. (Morr)
