When Yesterday Comes 
and won't stop coming, and coming, and coming...

Bourgeoiseaux with a deep reading of Erika Spring's Eighties-ism (including a cover of Eurythmics's "When Tomorrow Comes")

including the idea of the Eighties As the Decade that Owns Glamour, the music as re-blog syndrome, and Baudrillard's "precession of simulacra"...

Patrick Bateman/American Psycho and Phil Collins's "I Don't Care Anymore" rear their ugly heads too

as does Destroyer's Kaputt

(how i remember the queer feeling that came over me listening to that for the first time,  hearing those very precise guitar-texturings and chord sequences modeled exactly on Prefab's Steve McQueen -  this sweet sickly poisoned pleasure filled my body)

more thoughts from Lindsay Zoladz at Pitchfork

listen to the Erika Spring EP here
