The first sounds heard on the debut full-length from Montreal-based producer Michael Silver (musically known as CFCF) are a slow, bouncing beat matched by a handful of poignant synth tones that could have swirled straight from the hands of a lovesick android. Continent's opening track, "Raining Patterns," is more future-R&B than disco dance party, and sets the mood for an album more about the upper half of your body than the lower. That's not to say CFCF offers no get-down tunes, as Continent is loaded with disco, boogie, Italo, and house influences that drive the heavy groove of "Half Dreaming" and the fractured Timbaland-meets-Junior Boys-meets-The Knife pop sound of "Come Closer."
