Those nice people at Cascine have been busy recently. They’ve launched a new imprint dubbed CSCN for the express purpose of releasing singles from acts they find interesting without all that mucking about with Cascine release schedules. The label kicks things off with this captivating cacophony from Canadian experimental Pop outfit Vogue Dots.
‘Thundering’ is the first word that pops into your head in hearing Way Out, but thundering in a really sweet way. It kinda’ reminds us of an electronic version of the noise end of early 90s Shoegaze; it’s got that wall-of-sound vibe. Stuttering beats and burbling bass seem to hold the track together by it’s fingernails, always in danger of shaking itself apart; but Babette Hayward’s ethereal vocal and waves of melody hold the song together. The more you listen to it, the more you get out of it, the more it comes across actually quite funky.
