Bureau B is probably most recognizable for reissuing old Sky records. Now they’re dipping into 80s electronic label Cue Records’ back catalog for some extreme cosmic pop from the band You. Their album Time Code builds on the Kraftwerk template more than anything, adding a crystalline pop sheen with heavy doses of melodic sugar. That’s not to say that there aren’t some heavy synth-crazed moments. In my humble opinion, a pretty astonishing balance is met here between the corners of German electronics via 1983, making this somewhat of a lost classic.
