“Chemical Garden” C20
(Ionic Order Records)

North-2-North are a kind of groovy, techno-indie, duo from Denmark. Mostly, their music stays on the more somber side of the keys, maintaining consistent somberness without ever actually despairing, which is kind of fun. I imagine a bunch of sadly swaying show-goers, juuuuust motivated enough to move, but not actually fully commit to a shaking of the hips, eyes a notch narrowed, poised for a teardrop, but flirting with glazing over, entranced; enTRANCEd! Get it?! Ha!
