The debut release by Gil Mantera's Party Dream, Bloodsongs, is one of those rare recordings that manage to be both retro and modern at the same time. The electronic drumbeats sound like something out of a modern-day dance club, while if you spliced the synths and vocals away from the rest of the sonic stew, you could be fooled into thinking that it was straight out of new wave's early-'80s glory days.
Gil Mantera's Party Dream Bloodsongs. Ultimate Donny's use of the guitar in this album is extremely noteworthy, especially in a genre that generally is "all keyboards", and more often than not undergoes the scrutiny of the validity of actual musicianship.
