So what sort of hack-a-lack music-writer shorthand should be use to describe Deserter,” the latest single from Matthew Dear? Hmm. “Knob-twiddling electro-pop”? Nah. “Laptop-fueled dream-weavery”? We don’t even know what that means! How about if we just settle on “it has catchy keyboards, and it’s somewhat menacing”? Done and done!
