Backspace Unwind is the sixth LP from electronica duo Lamb. Album-opener "In Binary" wanders and hangs while still jutting out like a sharpened pencil.
Rhodes ' vocals do something interesting: her delivery is soft and gentle, seemingly effortless, but can become mighty; their presence is unmistakably felt among the rest of the mix. Lyrically, "In Binary" sets the tone for the rest of the album, having been written Proud Mary - Tom Jones - The Very Best Of free association, Circle Of One - Compos Mentis - Gehennesis made up of images and thoughts that came to Rhodes who, almost in a state of meditation, built the track visually.
Her lyrics evoke beautiful images of what Backspace Unwind - Lamb - Backspace Unwind is that makes us emotional beings -- what makes us human -- as one of the track titles intriguingly suggests.
While being recognizably dance-oriented, it also does what Lamb does best: evokes powerful emotion with both words and Backspace Unwind - Lamb - Backspace Unwind while injecting them with an unmistakable groove. Lead single "We Fall in Love" is composed of a lucid, warm glockenspiel melody, pulsating synth bass, and heavily pronounced dub-style percussion. Rhodes ' vocals again become the enveloping force for Andy Barlow 's crystalline production.
His knack for having the percussion occasionally misbehave -- to stutter at the end of some bars and give way to more celestial string arrangements that swim over the top of the song -- is majestic and extremely inviting. Each track is similar to and different from the rest; an unmistakable part of the over-arching theme, but also a standalone pillar supporting the rest of the album.
However, the record is not without some odd moments. Songs Backspace Unwind - Lamb - Backspace Unwind as "As Satellites Go By" come across as two separate ideas intended to mesh; instead, it sounds like two distinct ideas that manage to co-exist instead of completely entwine.
The rest of the album definitely overcomes this, and there are some real gems, like "Nobody Else," a midtempo, Bond-esque number with beautiful, warm strings courtesy of sting arrangements from collaborator Tom Trapp alongside thudding electronic beats, which lead nicely into "Seven Sails," a wonderfully bass-heavy track.
