Kleerup, 'Kleerup' (Astralwerks)

Kleerup
Critical Mass
Label: astralwerks

by Barry Walters

If he didn't collaborate with Lykke Li and other blogger beloveds, Stockholm synth-pop producer Andreas Kleerup would be deemed decidedly uncool. His neoclassical melodies feel warm and full of blood, his keyboards weep where others bleep, and he puts so much skillful passion into female vocal showcasing that the tracks on his solo debut are consumed bya yearning for companionship that's only shaken momentarily (on theresigned "On My Own Again," which he sings). Still, "With Every Heartbeat," featuring Robyn, remains a monument of devastation, while "Longing for Lullabies," sung by Titiyo, sends a postcard from the ruins.
