Song of the Day 4/28/09: Moderat - A New Error
"A New Error" opens up a little tentatively, with pitch-bent signals whipping off into space, but it doesn't stay reserved for long. Moderat drops some lush bass triplets over the top of the thin opening line, and from there each element drowns out the last - it's one thumping swoon that accrues an enveloping atmosphere, resets half way through, and then surges to the finish line. Don't overanalyze this one - a couple subtle shifts work well enough to keep our interest through this simple but engrossing slow-builder.
