Synth-bass freaks who remember Dan Kurtz from live house/ electro jam band the New Deal will delight in his current project’s full-on ’80s flavor. On songs like “Untouchable” and “Ghost,” Kurtz continues to make dance-floor magic while conjuring enough vintage tones and approaches to induce a flashback, and his production adds a modern sheen to the whole disc.
