Spirit Catcher Night Vision
- Words: Anna Balkrishna
- Label: 2020 Vision
- XLR8R Rating: 7/10
All clichés acknowledged, the happiest I've maybe ever been was driving down a midnight freeway with my boyfriend's stereo cranked, following bad directions to a party God-knows-where. Somehow Night Vision, the first long-player from Belgian duo Spirit Catcher, recalls that feeling a decade later. It's not that it sounds dated or referential; a stylish compromise between deep house's soul and electro-house's arpeggiated crunch, Night Vision is nothing but fresh. But it's the sense of optimism written into those warm synth washes, the joy of hurtling aimlessly forward, that makes this album special. Step on the gas!
