Blancmange – ‘Mindset’
The excellent new album from Blancmange is another chapter in the purple patch Neil Arthur has enjoyed over the last half a decade. He’s now close to perfecting the marriage of left-field electronic pop and startling lyrical interventions that you’d expect from a student of German experimentalists Can. “Unlike Wednesday, this day will be focused,” he sings on the title track. We know how you feel, Neil.
