Format: Audio CD
You could call the early-2000s the era of indie electronic music, offering a deluge of indie pop albums punctuated by a kind of digital poignancy. Suddenly, electronics weren't just the province of DJs and bedroom producers, but a way to imbue rock songs with certain moods that a guitar cannot accomplish on its own. This era saw the emergence of hot new indie electronic artists (The Postal Service) and career-high albums by scene veterans (Mouse on Mars), as well as those unfortunate records that didn't push hard enough or get lucky enough to end up on anyone's radar screen.

One of those records is Sweet Trip's Velocity:Design:Comfort, which is ironic, because its charisma and sheer ambition surpass most concept albums and everything that Aphex Twin ever released. But it's more than an imprint of elbow grease in the studio; it's a potent, sensual fusion of shoegaze, pointillist drum `n bass, four-on-the-floor dance music and sun-soaked electronic textures. Quite possibly, V:D:C is the most enjoyable indie electronic album ever to see the light of the day, while also being the smartest.

Synesthetes may see colors in music, but I nearly always think of this record in terms of tastes, all variations on (yep) sweetness. Drill `n bass cuts "Tekka" and "Pro:Lov:Ad" are tangy, while "Dsco" and "Fruitcake and Cookies" have a heavier bubblegum flavor, less complex but still delicious. Despite the busy production and the song-by-song disparities (late in the game, a taut percussion showcase gives way to a jangly shoegaze tune, then leads into a beautiful, cracked lullaby), the whole album goes down as easily as a glass of pink lemonade.

This cd has a strong personality. It's vibrant and dense. The sweet music is like an aroma of nostalgia and sentimental happiness.

Amazing album.

One thing that really bugs me about buying digital media on Amazon: you have to download their music app to download the albums now. This is a major turn off for me. I will definitely try to buy elsewhere with the introduction of this app.
