[LO-FI PSYCH ELECTRO] Any schlub in a dorm room can illegally download Ableton Live and dub themselves a "producer." Presenting modern electronic music with a distinctly hi-fi status quo has to be what Tom Fec, aka Tobacco, is railing against with his regressive, acid-fed synth and vocoder jams. Compared to his day job as the glo-fi maestro of Black Moth Super Rainbow, applying the term “synth-pop” to what he does in his off-time may be a stretch. On the excellent new Ultima II Massage, Fec cranks out rickety, stoner-friendly jams on analog equipment that sounds originated from the melted remains of an '80’s Radio Shack fire sale, but the warped melodies and low-riding grooves hit the same spots as Com Truise or Boards of Canada.
