Soft fuzzy sound selections make French producer/DJ Anoraak lovely enough to listen to sans vox. That's not to say the vocals take away from this project's effort. Subtle and flattering lyrical twirls make for quite a seamless marriage to the delightfully easy listening music ("Nightdrive with You"). Maybe it's slightly reminiscent of Junior Boys, but less seductive and more lighthearted in tone. Just added to the bill, much to our delight: Pat Mahoney of LCD Soundsystem.

(Le) Poisson Rouge says…

Start your winter season right with another major dance party from Powerslug featuring Anoraak.   While he’s certainly into laser-guided synth lines and sepia-toned nostalgia trips, Frédéric Rivière’s debut album as Anoraak (Wherever the Sun Sets) is more indebted to Italo disco, Motown-schooled funk and sepia-toned pop music—think: M83 on Ecstasy—than anything that’s lo-or-glo-fi.   Heat up the night with this awesome play from the epic producer hailing all the way from France.
