Casiotone For The Painfully Alone Twinkle Echo

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.
