Category: Electro / Rock / Goth
Album: California Noir – Chapter Two: Nightlife in Neon
Stars: 5
Blurb: This isn’t Miami Vice… more like Los Angeles Vice; as lush and cinematic a vision of the City of Angels as the preceding chapter, filtered through a nostalgic lens of ‘80s inspired new wave and post-punk, Julien-K surpasses itself with this triumphant fourth album.
