Casiotone For The Painfully Alone Twinkle Echo
- Words: Vivian Host
- Label: Tomlab
San Francisco's Casiotone adopts the same tone of confessional melancholy that made the Postal Service's debut so gripping. And even though Twinkle Echo is a rawer and less graceful record than Give Up, it does have similar charms, with noisy, glitch-pop backings tenderly touched by Owen Ashworth's emotronic vocals, which are alternately heartwarming and heartbreaking. If you like long road-trips, cardigans, late-night phone calls, the Smiths and teen angst, then Twinkle Echo will play like a 30-minute love letter straight to your soul.
