Night People snag a German gem that sounds like it should be right at home on Captured Tracks, trading chiming guitars with the kind of buzzing synths and melodic ennui that fuels the Brooklyn label's core. Simple in structure but resonant in scope, the few songs on this tape capture the perfect balance of sad and lonely catchiness that makes spending hours in a bedroom listening on repeat seem not only reasonable but necessary. They tap into a nice cross section of new wave and post punk touchstones for a sizable mix of danceable rhythms that would give way to sing-a-long moments were it not for the language barrier (though if you're versed in German feel free to break into song). This tape follows on a previous cassette from Crash Symbols and with the quality they're kicking up we'd have to register some prime interest in what's on the way in the form of an album.
