The third release from the Berlin duo of synth alchemist Leo Tardin and drummer Dom Burkhalter, Smooth Danger is full of glitchy, funky, post-jazz, electronic experimentation, with skewed Wurlitzers and Moogs pushed to their sonic limits. Tardin clearly knows his way around the keyboard, and Burkhalter expertly lays down funky, sometimes spastic beats. Black Cracker drops rhymes on “Sleepwalk” and “Roulette” while Mike Ladd is featured on the super-dramatic “Domestic Bliss.” An excellently odd disc. (Obliqsound | leotardin.com)

Have rotary simulations gotten good enough that you don't miss a real Leslie at the gig?
