Foreign Cinema is a duo based in San Francisco, CA, which has as one of its integrants, guitarist/songwriter David Han, from the underground San Francisco shoegaze band Astral. The band just released their debut EP entitled ?Non Synchronous Sound? which includes a cover of an early Depeche Mode b-side, Ice Machine. Lounge noir blending elements of melancholic shoegaze with triphop groove; melody, space, and beats are weaved together before a shadowy backdrop. The songs are regulated, cold, and emotionally challenging. The album cover presents a female with headphones, and the back, a male with a small movie camera. These photographs are in black and white, and that only complements the starkness of the album. Not one note is extra or out of place on Non-synchronous Sound. As the title implies, it's a slip from synchronicity, where everything matches up with life; the starkness gives an otherworldly quality to the album. The Depeche Mode cover fits in so well one might not even notice it was a cover. Overall, the album has a deliberate, plodding feel - but not in the sense that it will drag you down. Rather, Foreign Cinema wants every beat to count, most notably on "Lovers and Killers," the standout track on this mini album.
