Isan Meet Next Life

Sleeping is good, and what better album to escort you to the gates of dreamland than the latest from Integrated Services Analogue Network? Robin Saville and Anthony Ryan follow up their 2001 album Lucky Cat with a charming and intimate collection of dreamy synth-washed melodies and calming measures that slow the pulse without dropping the ball. Sweet like an instrumental Postal Service, and curvy like early Casino Versus Japan, ISAN's addition of computer savvy to live acoustic guitar, bass and percussion has yielded a project that's pleasingly innocent sounding without being poke-your-eyes-out cute.
