Dave Shaw’s solo shoegaze/synth machine keeps kicking out the hits, and this four track offering is no exception. “Goji Berry Lip Balm” sincerely nods to ‘80s heroes and recent chillwave hitmakers, while “I Can Learn” delicately pulsates its way into your subconscious. The whole thing teeters on sincerity and a “what would’ve happened if Ian Curtis fronted New Order, before New Order started to suck?” hypothesis, but it’s alright because the tracks deliver. While “Glue Heart” isn’t as immediately on-par with the other tracks, closer “Out From The Garden” is a timebomb of an anthem, guaranteed to break your heart and fill out the margins of your notebook with quotable lines.
