Dominique Leone
Critical Mass
Label: Strømland

by Barry Walters

First known as a Pitchfork music critic, this champion of experimental noise and classic pop unites both on a debut album that bypasses the Norwegian space disco of label co-owner Hans-Peter Lindstrøm. Instead, the Texas-born, San Francisco–based multi- instrumentalist and producer subverts his university-honed melodicism with darkly whimsical deviance -- tricky time signatures, screaming progrock guitar solos, mischievous musique concrète, and squelchy synths. At the heart of these labyrinthine freak-outs are delicate songs about relationship problems sung in a bashful tenor that exposes the beauty in his beast.
