Panic Lift - This Poison Remains CDS (Metropolis)
Sic songs, three of them versions of the title track, one remix of an earlier song and two new tracks, make up this 26 minute EP. The songs all come from the same mold, but overall it is a good mold. Mostly danceable (except for “A Ghost Story”), it is a bed of enjoyable electronic chord progressions and rhythms and beats, sometimes clear and sometimes fuzzed. Vocals also range from clear to vocoded to garbled, and work well.
The only real problem is that there is not much variation between the three mixes of the title track, whereas the best remixes gave each mix its own unique identity. That is not the case with this EP.
