Paris proggers return, bigger and bolder
In the two years since their debut, Paris-based psych-proggers Yeti Lane have shed founding member LoAc Carron. But rather than strip things down musically, they’ve made their sound bigger and bolder. They share a producer with M83, but instead of going shamelessly widescreen and ’80s-indebted, their songs are more subtle creatures. Everything is considered and carefully put together; on the likes of ‘Analog Wheel’ and ‘Dead Tired’, layers of bubbling synths build on top of krautrock-leaning rhythms and some otherworldly guitar sounds. The end result is stunning – like Grandaddy’s ‘The Sophtware Slump’ reimagined by Kraftwerk and Kevin Shields.
