"Today's update comes from Canadian duo The Pink Noise, whom have easily proved themselves as the reigning pioneers of the entire new lo-fi synth "movement." This cassette was released on Bennifer editions sometime last year and will see a deluxe vinyl reissue on Sacred Bones ( sometime over the next few months. A totally peaced out collection of destructo boombox symphonies - all channeled through the particular Pink Noise aesthetic of pseudo rap/speaking vocals, ambiguous instrumentation, and plastered casio beats. The way in which The Pink Noise maintain a totally singular vision while being utterly referential of genre and decade is truly mindboggling. Ripped straight from cassette" - cosmic slop

"A project from Toronto, Canadian Mark Sauner who seamlessly amalgamates the gamut of his musical influences - from early-mid period Madonna to Formula 1 video game soundtracks into a low-fi Californicated dream-cream of sedan/convertible cruise-pop. This album of 2 minute post-wave compositions for synthesizer, guitar, drum machine and delay-swollen vocal comes in a fold-over/over-sized silkscreened WTF sleeve or something". - beniffer
