Editors’ Notes

Rather than borrowing from the overblown rock sounds of the ‘70s, this Denver artist Kamtin Mohager breathes an exhilarating second life into the pop sounds of the ‘80s. Mohager coaxes a convincing falsetto into airy, synth pop territory when he’s not using a dusky, austere delivery to work over the distorted synths and rubbery guitars. Tunes ping-pong between the dance-floor euphoria of bands like Human League and the anthem rock of Simple Minds, sometimes blending them (as on “Undercover,” “Taste of Heaven,” and “Heartbreaking Scream”), and often giving them a slithering, Primal Scream backbone. The crispy synths on “Ethical Drugs” nudge up to a seductive, languid bed of keyboard and warm congas; “Hold On” blends an irresistible dance beat, glassy synths, and effervescent vocals with a hazy, au courant pop vibe. The Beck-ish, Fleetwood Mac-sampling “Stop” flows with liquid funk, a hip-swaying poke at youthful fatuity, while the staticky coating on the pulsating “Devil Lady” hints at LCD Soundsystem. Wayward Fire is a hugely smart and sexy juggernaut of a record.

John Hughes Goodness

I am madly in love with this album...okay, maybe that's too soon a statement to make since I've only just heard the entire album today.

Years Active: '10s

The Chain Gang of 1974 is the moniker of multi-instrumentalist and DJ Kamtin Mohager’' alternative dance music project. Born in San Jose and raised in Hawaii and later Denver, Mohager' first passion was hockey, but after hearing Tears for Fears' "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" in the movie Real Genius, the teenager was inspired to play music. (The project's name references the Raveonettes album title The Chain Gang of Love, and the birth year of another of his favorite musicians, Ryan Adams.)...
