    Dykehouse - Dynamic Obsolescence

    Detroit's Mike Dykehouse creates vibrant electronic soul for those who grew up associating analogue synths with horror soundtrack, TV show end-credits and the kind of space-age funk that occasionally dented the top 40 radio in the late 1970s. A sly, inventive wit and a retrofitted sense of music's social presence ensure the project doesn't slide into dreamy nostalgia. All the same, you'd swear that "Kalamazoo" and "Cargo Cult" had been lifted from a straight-to-video teen lasher, while "Record Store Track" could easily be an instrumental outtake from Parliament's "Motorbooty Affair".
