Editors’ Notes

What’s immediately noticeable in “D.S.O.Y.”—the opening song on Tomas Barfod’s debut album, Salton Sea—is the human feel resonating from programmed drums. Barfod’s beginnings as a drummer (the kind who tunes and plays an actual drumkit) obviously helped. But this in no way upstages his sleek production and icy textures. After the Danish musician relocated to Los Angeles with the goal of creating electronic music without any dance floor ambitions, he became inspired by the soundtrack to Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner and the dark dystopian beauty of L.A. as its backdrop. Much like the replicants in the 1982 film, the beats in songs like “Came to Party” are hard to decode; are they made by men or machines? Barfod plays up the android ambiguity in the hauntingly gorgeous “Broken Glass” with a vocal track that’s so Auto-Tuned and manipulated it sounds equal parts flesh and automaton. This is juxtaposed with “Till We Die,” where Swedish singer Nina Kinert’s pristine and demure vocals are just human enough to warrant suspicion.
