I saw Good Luck Casper play twice last year and really fell for his music. It’s melodic but also machinistic. He layers occasional vocals over lot of beeps and whistles, tweaks some knobs, ups the reverb and throws in some catchy 80s hooks. I spent a while waiting for an electronic version of his LP-only album – On A Monday – but then I kind of lost track of him. Until the video below cropped up over at In a Cyclone of Stones:
It reminded me how much I dug his music so I was pretty happy yesterday to find the album on iTunes and I’ve been playing it ever since. I like that its experimental but rarely dissonant. There’s a tinge of melancholy in there too. Almost like he’s nostalgic for something, but doesn’t quite know what yet.
