It’s early morning and I am sitting on my deck. It’s beautifully cool outside, a cup of Café Bustelo to my right, and earbuds bringing forth the smooth IDM beats of Analog Workshop‘s Emporium of Broken Toys (test tube). Like most of the albums I like, there is something just off with Emporium of Broken Toys. Just behind the effortlessly flowing beats are tinges of noise, glimpses of imperfection. Damn fine album to go along with a damn fine cup of coffee.
