Drawing from a palette of sounds that’s maximum synthetic, Jesse Magenta combines super-simple elements into something much more––catchy little ditties that stick. In “Hero” a deceptive simplicity of elements creates a catchy groove and provides a platform for a deadpan, monotone female vocal to exude an otherworldly aura that pleases, in a weird way. Simple elements again combine effectively in the soothing and melodic “Worn Out.” The daring “Human Interactions” takes synthetics to an extreme, creepy degree that is both robotic and grotesque. A consistent drawback in these recordings is a tendency to flatline, to stick with one groove instead of continually adding interest or energy.
