Revoir - Wondertheist

Posted By on Wed, Nov 28, 2012 at 11:04 AM

Heart-on-the-sleeve synth-pop sets a dazzling rollick throughout this E.P. - danceable without raving, more of a musing sort of roll... Local singer/songwriter Jason Revoir refines his keenness for cool, gleaming shimmies, all-shimmered-up here on his 2nd LP (multi-insrumentalist John Dion). Beatific blips, syrupy bass blushes and various other mellifluous...
