Computerization a.k.a. Derek is a one man band from Brooklyn akin to the likes of Figurine. This comparison is particularly strong on "1Point14Me" where the artist's friend Ashley does a fantastic job of imitating Meredith Figurine. The rest of the self-titled album realizes just how low-fi an electronica project can be. Aside from the opening track there is no vocoder within earshot, instead there's an off kilter warbling whisper of sometimes too intimate lyrics. Some songs come out as straight up awkward like "MyBody" which sounds like a rejected carnie's struggle with narcissism or "Fukuwinicu" which you can decipher by looking at for a little while. It's not as eccentric and self indulgent as early Panther and Treasure Mammal releases, if you can get past the voice, there's some nice melodies and analog keyboard sounds. That opening track is particularly sweet. Check it out.
