Digital Leather

Digital Leather heats up the dance floor on Warm Brother.
Sherry Cardino

Seemingly the byproduct of regular acid usage and too many Sparks albums, Digital Leather (a.k.a. Shawn Foree) has produced a body of experimental New Wave synth-punk as impressive as it is abnormal. After a clutch of sold-out singles and three full-lengths, the prolific Foree has his first proper studio release, the terrific Warm Brother. Toss Tubeway Army, Jim Carroll, Plastic Bertrand, Syd Barrett and the Spits in a blender, hit puree and you have your starting point. A mind-bending treat, this remarkably palpable album also serves notice that Foree is primed for commercial waters as well as veneration as an indie-bedroom genius.
