CD Review: New Underground Electronic Music From Adventure Set And Infaux

From Boston, MA comes the electronic pop duo of Ken Scales and Mark Pothier, known as Adventure Set. They recently released their latest EP in July, entitled "Gazebo." The four-song album begins with the addicting beats of "Witness" as the chorus repeats in your head. They look to bring back the eighties with the retro-pop appeal of "Cellophane," before closing with a total reworking of Nirvana's "Come As You Are," which works as Gothic dance club hit.

From North Dakota comes the latest album from electronic/industrial rock band Infaux. The album is titled "EP IV - Deep End" and was released back in July. The new eight-song album features four new songs and four remixes. Beginning with "Rescue Anne," Infaux look to draw out your fears with screams of "so dead behind your eyes" as the music swirls in the background. The band's Gothic rock appeal simmers to the top with "It's Not A Fight When I'm Right," before screaming the lyrics of "No Sympathy." The remixes are very interesting, "Power Of God" as a little too sporadic with the beats and vocals just all over the place. The album closes with two different remixes of the song "Shotgun Formation," showcasing the darker side to Infaux's music.
