Home Video No Certain Night or Morning
- Words: Luciana Lopez

There's a lonely and beautiful sweep to the debut long-player from New York-based duo Collin Ruffino and David Gross (a.k.a. Home Video). The two deftly combine new wave-style synths, wistful vocals, and understated rock rhythms. The result is often minimalist, like "Dialogue Box," which layers beats and synths for almost a full minute before the vocals kick in. Whether leaning more toward electronic (like "Pidpunk," with an opening synth line straight outta 1983) or rock (the opening "Sleep Sweet," with drumming that drives the song without detracting from the haunting melody), it's consistently excellent.
