Album Review: Ulrich Schnauss - 'Missing Deadlines: Selected Remixes' (Rocket Girl)

At times homogenous to the point of distraction

For all intents, this fourth album by reclusive London-based Deutschlander Ulrich Schnauss is more a collection of cover versions than a remix record. Featuring selections from the likes of Howling Bells and Rachel Goswell of Schnauss’ beloved Slowdive, these electronic re-imaginings never stray far from the textured soundscapes of his original work. Occasional vivid moments such as Asobi Seksu’s rumbling ‘Strawberries’ provide a little relief, however. While ‘Missing Deadlines’ is undoubtedly accomplished, with honest affection for its source material, it is also homogenous to the point of distraction.
