My top cuts from this album are “Bloody Palms,” “Lipstick,” “Is It Time” and “TyphoonAlert.” The single, “Love Peas,” is less ambient and differs greatly from the other tracks on this album. It’s luscious and lachrymose, truly beautiful in it’s own right. – Andrew Zistler, NewRetroWave
NewRetroWave reviews College’s (David Grellier) new album, Shanghai. A departure from his previous throbbing synth tracks like “A Real Hero (feat. Electric Youth)” from the Drive soundtrack, Shanghai signals a new direction for College with exploration of sounds in this dreamy homage to a 1920s Shanghai through melancholic melodies.
