Malai Kofta

Vesuvius Records


Listening to ProtostarR’s Malai Kofta is like hitching a ride on a time machine back to the 80s. There’s enough techno pop on the album to make members of Depeche Mode and the Pet Shop Boys smile. The first half of the album, though, tends to highlight more guitar, including a few shoegazing-like touches, or reggae rhythms on “Tarantula.”

The latter songs on the 14-track album are more heavily laden with synthesizers. The production on the album is rather thin, and seems to work better later in the album where a few songs are so steeped in techno, they‘d be worthy collections on a dance-trax mix.

Favorite Track: Track 12, “ Capri”
