DOMENIQUE DU­MONT

Miniatures De Auto Rhythm ANTINOTE 8/10

UNCUT - - New Albums - Piers Martin

Mys­te­ri­ous duo’s en­chant­ing Balearic throw­back

Two Lat­vians, Ar­turs Liepins and Anete Stuce, ap­pear to be be­hind the hazy me­chan­i­cal pop of Domenique Du­mont, whose de­but al­bum ar­rives three long years af­ter they first daz­zled with their “Comme Ça” EP. Miniatures De Auto Rhythm picks up where that left off, neatly chan­nelling some kind of myth­i­cal late-’80s Mediter­ranean spirit where clock­work psychedelia and Stere­o­lab ex­ot­ica swirl around drum-ma­chine funk and pas­tel chan­sons. There are lay­ers of de­tail be­neath the breezy chintz of “Faux Sav­age”, while the dusky groove of “Sans Cesse, Mon Chéri” and “Le Soleil Dans Le Monde” com­pels you, gen­tly, to­wards the edge of the dance­floor.
