Product Description

The Brussels based Club Ancienne Belgique is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2004. When it comes to bringing contemporary Indie-, Club- and Popmusic to the stage, this venue is Brussels' most relevant adress, especially for the city's young, Flemish community. That's why STYROFOAM and Morr Music got invited by AB to produce an album at the AB studio's to be presented at this occasion. The result: a collaboration album with STYROFOAM and respected guests such as MARKUS ARCHER (The Notwist), VALERIE TREBELJAHR (Lali Puna), Anticon artist ALIAS, BEN GIBBARD (The Postal Service), ANDREW KENNY (American Analogue Set) and BENT VAN LOOY (Das Pop).

Arne Van Petegem is Styrofoam. For his fourth and most successfully realized effort, Van Petegem invited his favorite artists to collaborate on this dreamy recording. They include Ben Gibbard (Death Cab for Cutie), Markus Acher (the Notwist), Valerie Trebeljahr (Lali Puna), and Andrew Kenny (American Analog Set). Most traveled to Brussels to lay down their tracks, with the exception of Kenny, who swapped files via the Internet. Not too surprisingly--considering the personnel involved--the results sound like a cross between the electronic pop of the Notwist and the Postal Service with a little hip-hop on the side. "Misguided" features a rap from Alias, who also contributes beats, while the album's standout is "Couches in Alleys," in which Gibbard’s breathy vocals have been treated to sound otherworldly. (Van Petegem has a similar, if less distinctive voice.) Nothing's Lost marks Styrofoam as one of the premier electronic artist/producers of the 2000s. - Kathleen C. Fennessy

Arne Van Petegem has put together another fine electronic album, and brought along several of his friends from the electronic music scene for cameo appearances.

The album has several high points. "Couches in Alleys," featuring the Postal Service's Ben Gibbard, is an electronic indie-pop delight. The album's closing song, "Make it Mine," clocking in around 9 minutes, features several of Petergem's collaborators, and makes excellent background music. The first track, "Misguided," features some variety, using a slightly harder beat, and rhymes provided by Alias.

Cameos on the album include Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie/The Postal Service, Markus Acher of the Notwist, Valerie Trebeljahr of Lali Puna, and Andrew Kenny of American Analog Set, and "Alias". If you are a fan of any of these artists, I strongly recommend that you check out Styrofoam's latest entry, "Nothing's Lost".

This album is suberb. Anyone can listen to most of the tracks at Morr's website at [...]

There are so many special guests on this album. I cant stop listening to Couches In Alleys. Ben's voice is awesome...its like an electronic deathcab song but not like the postal service.

Anyway I saw styrofoam at the morr fest a couple weeks ago and he played his whole set with the guy from the go find.

great stuff....

Stryofoam is Arne Van Petegem, a Belgian. He is associated with the Brussels club called Club Ancienne Belgique. Petegem was able to select a bunch of artists to work with. He chose Markus (of The Notwist), Andrew Kenny (of American Analogue Set), and Bent van Looy (of Das Pop). This record became like a This Mortal Coil for now. Other artists joined in: mostly notably Ben Gibbard (Death Cab For Cutie) and Alias (Anticon) and Valerie Trebeljahr (Lali Puna). This record encompasses electronic music, hiphop and indie rock. Due to some of the people involved, it sounds like a new record by Lali Puna and/or The Postal Service. It is a very satisfactory record. Some of these collaboration albums don't work, but this one does. It's like a merger between Fischerspooner and Wire. It's a relaxing album. There are psychedelic and acid sounds. This is one of the best electronic albums of the past year.

I first heard of Styrofoam on an indie music channel hosted by Dish Network (fancy that!) They played Couches in Alleys (featuring Ben Gibbard from Death Cab For Cutie), then I knew I had to FIND the full-length album. Actually, I've only been able to find this album online (Best Buy, Circuit City, Hastings, etc...no one had it in stock, some didn't even have it in their database period).

Experimental and emotional, it's hard to classify a particular genre for Styrofoam (although my computer is automatically calling it Electronica). Very ambient, great for relaxing.

Favorite tracks (in no particular order):
Misguided
Beequeen
Your Eyes Only
Front to Back
Safe + Broken
Anything
Make it Mine

Gently refining his already accessible electronic-pop into the most radio ready incarnation yet, Styrofoam still seems to come up short of great work, producing a few standout tracks and a majority of pleasant emo-electro generic-isms.
