Games “No Disguise”
I loved the Games LP, but for whatever reasons didn’t connect with their follow up LP Channel Pressure (under their new name Ford and Lopatin) outside of a few jams (namely the awesome “Joey Rogers”), so I was excited to see they dusted off an old Games track for our listening pleasure. “No Disguise” is a buoyant, sample heavy track that is less obliviously 80’s indebted than Ford and Lopatin and more of a dance floor ready electro jam. For whatever reason they duo upped the schmaltz on their debut full length, which took away the fun of what made Games so good. While they seem to be gravitating back to their main projects (Airbird and Oneohtrix Point Never), songs like “No Disguise” give me hope for the duo in the future, especially if they have more tracks like this up their sleeve.
