Solvent "Loss for Words"

On the forthcoming Subject to Shift, his first album under the Solvent moniker in six years, Jason Amm brings an air of synth-pop melancholy to a sound that had previously inhabited the imagined world of happy analog robots. While the sonics remain analog, "Loss for Words" is indicative of Amm's new direction—a sheen of sad, watery synths flows behind bright swells that bring New Romantic sounds to mind. With multi-tracked vocals intoning about an unhappy, non-communicative relationship softly floating above it all, one can imagine Solvent blasting out of many college dorm windows, and this is most certainly a good thing.
