"Nothing's Lost," Styrofoam

Reviewed by Alex Slawson and Herman Snell

Relatively obscure to American electronica fans, Arne van Petegem aka Styrofoam has been somewhat of a fixture in the German and Belgian glitch-pop scenes. Luckily, The American Analog Set gave him some U.S. exposure on 2002's "Updates," as they asked him to remix two of their songs and hence, set the stage for a slew of collaborative efforts on Styrofoam's behalf. The newest full length is just that, a wonderful collaboration of Styrofoam's beautiful lap-pop electronica with instrumental and vocal offerings from members of The American Analog Set, Death Cab for Cutie, The Notwist, Lali Puna and Alias. The result is a cohesive long player that is as seamless as it is accomplished.
