Music: Volume On by Tanlines * * *
This compilation album rounds up various singles and remixes from Brooklyn-based production duo Jesse Cohen and Eric Emm.
It's a decidedly eclectic collection, flitting from genre to genre in a manner that's both tiresome and welcome. At its best, there's a sun-dappled feel to proceedings -- Real Life and Bejan wouldn't disgrace any compilation of fresh new smart pop tunes.
Unsurprisingly, considering it's a compilation, there's a lack of focus when listened as a whole. But there are enough adventures in sonic texture to make a first album proper one to look forward to.
