Review of 'Scan Hopper' at

Hmmm...interesting. This, the band's debut self-titled album, contains tracks recorded from December 2008 to March 2009 but "several elements were recorded well before then, and a majority of the music was actually composed between 2002 and 2004." Scott has apparently been influenced by music from the vinyl era. Instead of predictable canned creations, the tracks on this album seem strangely out of synch with music being released in 2009. And that, of course, is a very good thing. Considering how many people have begun collecting vinyl again, we can't help but think that this album would be a prime candidate to be released on vinyl as well (perhaps this is already in the works?). We can't come up with many similar sounding artists or comparisons...but some of the ideas presented here remind us of Joy Division and even The Residents at times. A bizarre hodge podge of ideas and sounds.
