Foam Island" is the audio equivalent of watching "Interstellar" by Christopher Nolan - bleak, beautiful, grounded in reality. The voices in the background, discussing their struggles, their hopes and desires ('simple things') have a stunning effect. Reply Notify me 2 Helpful. Marketplace 79 For Sale from €. 1.

Album · 2015 · 12 Songs. Laced with field recordings and short interviews with young people, Darkstar's Foam Island mixes documentary techniques with electronic music to create a bittersweet portrait of the North of England. Economic inequality is the primary subtext, while the duo's inventive productions speak to electronic music's limitless expressive potential. Stoke the Fire" frames political agency with hopeful house beats, "Pin Secure" seethes with icy desperation, and "Go Natural" weds falsetto R&B melodies to a minimalist blizzard of plucked strings

THUMP: Foam Island marks your third album. When you look back at your first LP in 2010, how dramatically do you think you have changed as artists? Darkstar: Massively, to be honest. When we started making 12"s for Hyperdub it was very much a case of being as clinical as possible and spending countless hours honing the track. As we developed and started to broaden our output we let go of that and were more inclined to catch a particular mood with the music rather than adjusting every detail.

The latest Darkstar album is coming out on Warp Records. It's been two years since the second Darkstar album, News From Nowhere, came out through Warp Records. That LP followed their breakthrough North album for Hyperdub. Warp say this latest effort is a contemporary pop record that carries undertones of "political isolation, social disillusionment and personal ambition

"Foam Island" is the audio equivalent of watching "Interstellar" by Christopher Nolan - bleak, beautiful, grounded in reality. The voices in the background, discussing their struggles, their hopes and desires ('simple things') have a stunning effect. Shooting for my favorite album of 2015.
