Xander Harris, 2011 breakout talent contender!

I wrote a review for the french Trax magazine May issue of the Xander Harris debut album, one of the most surprising and joyous release to come out of recent. I usually don’t care about albums. I think the format is deeply outdated, especially in pop/dance music. The few recent exceptions have been Traxx’s Faith, Actress’s Splazsh and Umberto’s Prophecy Of The Black Widow.
Not unlike Umberto, Xander (or whatever his real name is since Xander Harris is a Buffy Vampire Slayer character) dwells in the most figurative aspect music can be, bringing a very visual aspect to his compositions. From his titles to the sounds and the melodies, everything is there to reference the 80ies american slasher movies and John Carpenter’s Prince of Darkness or The Thing. People have done it before, sure, but strangely enough, he manages to make it pass as dance music too.

Tracks such as Tanned Skin Dress or the epic End Credits made my day, but as I listened to the vinyl, I actually realized how good the whole album is, even the more abstarct or cheesy “songs”.

And now, not even a montha fter the album arrives a new single on 100% silk, the Not Not Fun sublabel responsible for the great Ital and Maria Minerva Eps amongst other things.

It is even more fun and danceable and should move quick, so don’t sleep on it!
And for you hardcore fans, exclusive K7 goodness!
