Here's some déjà vu for fans of Hella guitarist Spencer Seim's Nintendo-spazz side project the Advantage and his solo half of Hella's 2005 double album Church Gone Wild/Chirpin' Hard (he was responsible for the latter disc). Basically, Seim attempts the same video-music-gone-rock theme via lo-fi electronics, though it's more mannered and less playful here -- imagine Sonic the Hedgehog simply jogging.But since his guitar runs so resemble the lovably cheesy synth pop of vintage games, his numbered-not-named songs retain a familiar charm, from the dreamy sweetness of "06" to the screaming speed metal of "03" to the industrial pop of "05."
