Drive (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
French DJ Vincent Belorgay (a.k.a. Kavinsky) sets the tone here with “Nightcall,” a sexy slice of perfect Parisian electro-pop in the vein of Air, Darkel, and Phoenix. Chromatics’ “Tick of the Clock” manages to work in palpable tension within a minimal krautrock framework reminiscent of Neu! and Kraftwerk. Check the icy synthesizer soundscapes of “Rubber Head,” where pulsing analog keyboard repetitions recall those of Popol Vuh.
