Lansing-Dreiden
A SECTIONED BEAM
(Kemado)

They may not reveal their names or want their pictures taken ó they donít even like to be referred to as a "band," really ó but the members of Brooklyn-based art collective Lansing-Dreiden know all the right buttons to press when it comes to making artful retro-pop recordings. The first three jams on this four-track EP sparkle with the kind of dreamy lysergic jangle that would blow whatís left of Brian Wilsonís fragile psyche back to 1968 on a cloud of pixie dust. Itís not all strawberry fields forever, though: the final hidden and untitled track harnesses the í80s synth-pop glory of Tears for Fears and Depeche Mode ó minus the high-strung pretension and sideways haircuts ó so confidently that Lansing-Dreiden might as well have invented it. The overall effect is that of drug rock for precision pill poppers that requires neither precision nor pills.
