E.R.P. – Afterimage (Forgotten Future).
Just in the nick of time for 2018 comes this virtually flawless collection of electro tracks by one of the most consistent cats in the game, Gerard ‘Convextion’ Hanson in his E.R.P. guise. It’s not reinventing the wheel by any means – it sounds like it could have been released at almost any point in the past 25 years – but I’ll never not love music like this. Confident, precise, perfectly engineered, and not a note out of place… electro doesn’t get much better.
So that’s it for this 2018 round-up – thanks for reading, and I hope you’ve enjoyed hearing some of this music again, or for the first time. I’ve collected those picks that are available on Bandcamp on this list.
If I can keep the blogging momentum going in 2019 I’ll return to digging through the archives to unearth some lesser-known nuggets. Until then, have great new year.
