Spacemaker and Leather E's Electronic Emergencies label has largely impressed since launching midway through last year. Following killer releases from Das Ding, SOS and Visonia, they turn to previously unheard NYC cold-wave combo Ceci N'Est Pas. The American trio's debut is an impressive one, too. There's something particularly confident about "The Last Time", which expertly combines New Order style guitar passages with rasping electronic lines, cheap drum machine rhythms and atmospheric vocals. "The Stranger" is a little woozier and dreamier, coming on like the soundtrack to a sleepy saunter through empty warehouses in the company of Cabaret Voltaire, circa 1983's The Crackdown.
