Housemeister Who Is That Noize
Can a techno album sound like a puppy? Because Housemeister‘s Who Is That Noize is just that playful. Housemeister packs this album with plenty of buzzing synths and weirdly processed vocals (“What You Want”) and cheery bloops (on the Kylie Minogue-ish “Hallo Lieblingsmench”). Most impressive, though, is that Housemeister has mostly done all this without being insufferably twee. The album does sacrifice depth to stay constantly kinetic, which can be exhilarating (“Hifi Positiv”) or irritating (“Gorilla Marketing”), depending on your mood. And if the record as a whole never feels particularly ambitious, it stays consistently fun.
