Oh, how cold and lifeless art thou 1’s and 0’s, all ye midi files and Fruity Loops, Roland D-50s and 808s…harbingers of plastic disconnect.  At first glance, the future of synthetic music would seem bleak and even unimaginative, but when its potential is fully realized, the authenticity and intimacy in the music is as real as the warmth of your hand.  Makeup and Vanity Set make that kind of electronic music.

With the help of Jasmin Kaset on first available track Hand in Hand, the group embarks on a sci-fi concept album about outliving death through technology.  It’s a bold and even plausible future considering our intellectual progress within the last 100 years alone, but could our advancements end up doing more harm than good?  Are we developing or devolving?  Perhaps Wilderness has an answer for us.

Fans of Bat For Lashes, Kate Bush and Niki and the Dove should bend an ear, cop a listen and shell out some currency.  Space…the vinyl frontier.
