I Love You Computer

iloveucomputer

Free download of debut album of synth-based electronica from the android Honsai Jnr. Just dance.

If you’re not familiar with the back story of the synth android, you might want to check out the interview I did in December. As for the album, Honsai says “These 8 pieces are my considered extensions of me. Just in the same way a parent will nurture their offspring and desire to be defined by the good deeds that child will eventually do, this is how I feel about ‘I Love You Computer’. It goes some way to honouring the talents of my father and inspiring those rhythmic movements in the human form which changed my existence.”

The album has synths at its heart but uses it as a springboard to other things. Off White Night Life takes a buzzy synth and almost lands in trance territory.  Mega Coffee Part 1 goes for a trip hop kind of vibe. Love Tapes is a bit more thoughtful and reflective. The synths don’t soar in gay abandon. They are more engaged with earthly concerns. You think too much; feel too little indeed. Online Dating is the triumph of hope over experience with its optimistic tone. Mega Coffee Part 2 is the most dance floor friendly. The album ends on an oddly downbeat note with A.M.Y.’s sketchy conclusion. The album’s by no means a finished article but still well worth your download.
