Reporter have kicked their time machine into gear and set their sights to the cosmos on their debut. Time Incredible is a remarkably ambitious collection of dance gems, seeped in the saturated hues of fantasy. In these fantastical tunes, a nightclub tête-à-tête is evoked as strongly as an intergalactic exploration. The band recorded the entirety of Time Incredible themselves and in their own studio, and their keen musicianship and recording expertise shines through on this well-polished opus.
Using live instruments as well as samples and drum machines, [Reporter] straddles the line between rock and electronica. The breathy, sensual vocals of Alberta Poon top a dance-inflicting mix of minimal house and techno — and onstage, the group can get feed off a crowd the way a DJ would.
Ian S. Port,
Nine highly polished, beaming even, songs that blend the realms of ambience, pop and electronic music together.
