Every two years brings a new full length album by Polish producer Stendeck, and 2011 is no exception, with what is now his fourth CD already. "Scintilla" pretty much sees this guy stay faithful to his kind of emo-electronica, with a particularly heavy handed approach this time around. I might be wrong, but I recall Stendeck's previous efforts to be a bit more on the glitch side of things, and "Scintilla"'s thick beats and as-much-in-the-foreground-as-possible melodies, while still working, seem slightly detrimental to the album's subtility. Still, all of you industrial fans who want to kick back and listen to something romantic: this is for you.
