Isolée Western Store
- Words: Jennifer Marston
- Label: Playhouse
It's hard to resist comparing this latest release to Isolée's wildly impressive WeAreMonster, but fortunately, the Germany producer's new album stands on its own. Though it is by definition minimal, with bleeps and crunches aplenty, a wealth of subtle layers keep it from being just another techno album. Melody builds upon melody, the 4/4 shuffle makes an appearance, and there are even a few power chords woven into this tapestry, making for a collection as musically intense as it is soothing.
