Artist: Alec Empire Track: "New Man" Album: The Golden Foretaste of Heaven Listen

At first, the most recent album from one-third of Atari Teenage Riot sounds like another electronic musician trying to co-opt what seems to be an increasing population of rockers interested in hybrids of electronica, rock and dance music. What saves this record -- beyond the glamorous, fascinating hooks -- are nods to both the grim world of Suicide and an attempt to define a complex worldview similar to David Bowie's Low.
