Signer The New Face Of Smiling
- Words: Selena Hsu
- Label: Carpark
More low-key shimmer and magenta shine from the Carpark roster. The New Face feels muted, just short of vibrant, in its light glitch 'n' glow, but the processed guitar wails that Signer pulls through the beats make for a nice sandpapery feel. The New Face... also features drowsy vocals (as on "Machines at Low Tide") that lead the way until distorted guitars openly yawn. "Hurricane or Sunshine" is perhaps the climax of Signer's style, with its delicate little skip definitely putting a new kind of shy smile on the face of your CD collection.
