Pantha du Prince, 'Black Noise' (Rough Trade)

Black Noise
Critical Mass

Hendrik Weber's first two albums of luminous minimal house as Pantha du Prince -- 2004's Diamond Daze and 2007's This Bliss -- remain some of the most crystalline electronic music of the new century. On his third full-length,Weber keeps the beats crisp but more varied, conjuring steamy pipes (on "The Splendour," featuring !!!'s Tyler Pope), wind chimes (the twinkling "Bohemian Forest"), and a bullet train ("Welt Am Draht"). It's a departure from his previously purist approach, but as guest vocalist Panda Bear sings amid the aural rush: "Why stick to the things that I already tried?"
