Trip the Light: 'Galactic'

Photo: , License: N/A


Less than a year after his debut EP, Anthony Burchell — aka Trip the Light — returns with Galactic. Where 2011's Fantastic painted TTL as intelligent dance music with Playstation-era textures and pop pastiche, Galactic is more singular. Burchell no longer sounds like he's veering from Animal Collective to Namco. Instead, he's plumbing Kraftwerk to make something consistent. That means that Galactic doesn't have an instantly likeable equivalent of "I Cannot See" or the eight-bit WTF-ness of "Danzing." Instead, Galactic is patient, demanding the same of its listeners, but proving Burchell to be as conscious an electronic talent as he is a burgeoning one.
