Victor Bermon Arriving At Night
- Words: Brion Paul
- Label: Hefty
- XLR8R Rating: 6/10
For those who think that homespun, lo-fi bedroom-tronica isn't "street" enough, Victor Bermon is here to inject more than a little boom-bap into its pastoral existence. Boldly stepping out like an extroverted introvert, Bermon pairs Frankenstein-like ambition with earnest, infinitely beautiful instrumentation and some DJ Premier-wise beats. At times, that combo provides perfect balance, but not always. And when it doesn't, Arriving at Night seems more suited to an EP than a full-length.
