Dirk Leyers and Mathias Aguayo only released one album as Closer Musik, but what a startling beauty AFTER LOVE is. After starting with the crisp minimalism of "Closer Dancer," it shifts into the mesmerizing and gorgeous "Departures," the unmistakable highlight of the album with its complex 10/4 rhythm and beguiling melody. "Last" returns to straightforward techno, but "Ride" slows down for a thoughtful drift, punctuated by jabs of bass and Aguayo's laconic patter. The Morse code blipping in from "Mir" suggests funky kind of retro-futurism that's augmented by the deep mechanical growls, while the sedate beats of "You Don't Know Me" hang upon Aguayo's lyrics. "Giganten" returns to a more upbeat tempo with the a simple but effective melody. Alas, this is the last we'll ever hear of Closer Musik, but there's still plenty to love about this album after.
