Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Bev Stanton’s project returns with another album of electronic joy. As before longtime collaborator Lisa Moscatiello joins her. She sings on the strident, club-friendly opener I Want You.

Naked has more of a languid feel and will probably suit chill out sessions fine.

Friendly Fire has Moscatiello on vocals again and she brings her usual sweet tone to soft but far from edgeless work.

The album concluded with ALP remixing Techno Squirrels who have been reviewed here by Amy.

Unbelievable is in this version a soft song with the vocals a ghostly echo.

It’s another great album by ALP.
