Album Review

If the synthesizers used by early OMD or Kraftwerk reprogrammed themselves with the help of Joy Electric, there's a good chance that their output would resemble Sweden's Pluxus. European Onion is instrumental, innocent electro that isn't cold like one would expect. It's actually quite warm and bouncy, like a little kid on a trampoline. The slightly experimental, IDM-style percussion plays with the lighthearted synths wonderfully, with particular fun on "April 1724" and "Psykopotat," which sounds like a vintage Nintendo game gone haywire. There's space-age lounge for the electro generation on "Business," while down-tempo trip-hop finds its way into "Dagsmeja."

Vocals could easily be added, but this is about the joy of those bubbly synth modulations, even if humans are still the presumed creators.
