Let us all rejoice at the release of a new record by Starving Weirdos member Brian Pyle as Ensemble Economique, who enthralled us all ‘round this time last year with the stunning bag of tricks that was Psychical on Not Not Fun. His new record, Crossing The Pass, By Torchlight, is a step away from the more overt 80s VHS soundtrack explorations of some previous work, but somehow by stitching guitar and keyboard lines to a jumble of synth drum kits, EE manages to scare up a host of evocative moments and cinematic flavors. This would work as the theme to the next James Bond movie. 007 in To Feel The Night As It Really Is! It would be the coldest, most existential, and mysterious Bond movie since, uh, Goldeneye?
