Taut instrumentals snap you into movement. A whooping gonzo record of synths, samplers, string quartet and drum machines, Les Archives is composed, arranged and produced by illusive Japanese artist June Chikuma. Her neon-vibrant aesthetic would be at home with films like After Hours, Repo Man, Gleaming the Cube or Teknolust. If it scored an action movie this record is a tale of mistaken identity (hijinks ensue). Les Archives bares little trace of its Picture Label 1986 origins in name or sleeve design, but makes an emphatic entrance at the end of Freedom to Spend's 2018 archiv-ities.
