Telepathic Beat is Ennui's debut for Mush and the album that should expose a wide audience to Jim Doutrich's brand of infectious synth-pop. The playfully yearning vocals, syncopated synth patterns, and distorted Euro-dance grooves bring to mind both the 80s New Wave pop explosion and the youthful nostalgia of recent releases by glo-fi re-originators. Though there is no shortage of hooks, "Circles", "Summer Of Love", and "Telepathic Beat" stand out in style and substance as roller-beats immersed in a bath of shimmering neo-shoegaze create a widescreen backdrop to act as home for brain-embedding melodies and subtly haunting lyrics. With its sun-drenched feel, the album plays as a soundtrack to a summer balancing a narcotic life in clubs with the possibilities that await when you skip work and head to the beach. Telepathic Beat is destined to be the album to reach for when you don't want to admit to yourself that summer is over.
