New Music : Digits

Based out of Toronto, Canada comes Digits, an electronic indie pop guru whose actual name is Alt Altman. During the Summer of this year, Digits recorded and produced his debut album titled "Hold It Close", which is available both digitally, physically, and streamably through his website.

Digits music is a throwback to the electronic heydays of the 80's, but with a significant 2009 indie update. Think Joy Division and Depeche Mode meeting Hot Chip and Simian Mobile Disco, a mouth watering prospect I think you'll agree. "You're Going To Age" has a smooth engrossing bassline, which repeatedly breaks out quite funky, and is almost impossible to not move to. Alt's vocals are haunting and understated, but suit the style of music superbly. There is great depth to Digits music, something which can in no small part be attributed to the way he's produced the record, an impressive bow for any musician to have. If you're looking for some dark but intriguing disco for these Winter nights then check out Digits.
