The past two years have found Austin's dark lord Xander Harris (a.k.a. Justin Sweatt) on a heavy transfigurative trip, overhauling his live rig, detouring through an expansive soundtrack project celebrating the 20th anniversary of Neal Stephenson's Snow Crash, touring outside Texas (from New Orleans to the Netherlands), plus a host of other inner-life turmoils and metamorphoses - all of which have seeped into the synthesizer soil of his stunning second full-length, the New Dark Age of Love. Echoes abound of classic Chris & Cosey urban wasteland synth-pop, Umberto's vintage evil, and Klaus Schulze at his most candlelit and Crowleyian, but the New Dark Age of Love is unquestionably Sweatt's story to tell, and it's a tome.
