Review Text Composer, lyricist, and singer Corey Dargel's gentle assault on the pop idiom creates a tension which pervades his music: Deadpan and detached vocals reveal heartbreaking intimacies, awkward and obtrusive drum patterns struggle against fragile harmonies, vocals and music uneasily opposing each other as songs stumble to their ends. Emotional and intelligent, his songs evoke the fragility of Antony & the Johnsons and the Hidden Cameras, the electronic works of the late Macon Sumerlin, and the avant-pop approaches of Mark Amerika and Arthur Russell. Voted one of Time Out New York's "Top 25 People to Watch in 2006," Dargel's live performances have received glowing reviews in the New York Times and the Village Voice.
