Vessel Dreaming in Paris

Stealing fire from Warp and a page from Aphex Twin, Vessel cook up highly unoriginal IDM. Braindaince wouldn't be braindance if it wasn't a little dreamy, but these guys are laid back to the point of coma-inducement. They embellish their songs with the latest in squishy glitch drums, but include unneeded electro keys that destroy the shiny-new-sound feel that marks IDM's experimentalism. Dreaming in Pairs sounds like it should have been served around 1998-it's basically a great dish ruined by being left out in the cold.
