Germany's People Press Play is very much the sum of their four creative parts. The members are veterans of electronic outfits Dub Tractor, Opiate, Acustic, and Savery, and combined they make sleepy, IDM-pop anchored by Sara Savery's feathery vocals. The group incorporates elements of their other projects (dub techno bass, brittle drum loops, luxuriant synth programming) but wisely adds live guitar, bass, and acoustic instruments that make each song uniquely tuned. While sonically similar to recordings by Barbara Morgenstern, Lali Puna, or Dntel, the self-titled album achieves its own gradually unfolding authenticity. If your ears crave some hazy, digital shoegazer bliss, press play now.
