Dark electro is the best electro and Joyce Muniz has this shit down to a science. “Glass Mistress” is the title track of her new EP, released by Pets Recordings in May. The title track is a séance raising the spectral New Wave and No Wave ghosts of the past, channeling all of the elements from the throbbing electro bassline to the spooky keys and monotone vocals worthy of the late Cristina herself. “Glass Mistress” carries the EP but the rest are built for a lost weekend too. The lasers and strobes do battle in “Trapped In My Mind” and “Naughty Party,” both fun takes on the dark proto-techno and electro of the 1980s.
