Steam Days by Nathan Fake
Released: Sep 2012
Label: Border Community
With his 2004 single "The Sky Was Pink," Nathan Fake became an instant darling of the progressive-house scene -- and promptly turned his back on it, preferring to follow his own muse down a more abstracted path. On his first full album in six years, he sounds more than anything like the second coming of Aphex Twin, taking up the twisted machine funk of the latter's early years and outfitting it in the kind of jewel-toned melodies and analog warble Fake does so well. Avoiding shock-and-awe tactics, Steam Days envelops and surprises on its own terms, understated but dazzling.
