Pulse Programming Tulsa for One Second
- Words: Andrew Jones
- Label: Aesthetics
Experimental acts are sneaking out of the bedroom and into clubs. Groups like The Postal Service (Jimmy Tamborello of Dntel's side-project on Seattle's Sub Pop imprint) are rockin' the world of formerly electronic-shy indie-pop fans. Chicago's Pulse Programming continues in this vein, and their gorgeous "Blooms Eventually" is like a love song for electronica sweethearts. Unlike Dntel's computer-processed shoegazer-emo, Tulsa conveys a vibe suitable for seduction-smooth like a nattily tuxedoed soul singer, as opposed to Peaches's overt "come on, fuck me" attitude. Pulse Programming uses vocoders and microtonal shuffles romatically, like a seductress's hand slowly lifting hair from her face. Slip Tulsa into the evening when your Prince tape finally dies.
