Digits Calculates His Return

Alt Altman is Digits, an electronic indie pop artist from Toronto, and it's been a while since Hold It Close but Altman has emerged out of the studio with new music.

A blend of indie pop songwriting and danceable electronic arrangements, Digits has been likened to the Junior Boys, Belle & Sebastian, and Broadcast. Although to me the record reminds me of early 90's Creation/Factory/Sarah records with an electronic edge, think Pacific, The Wake, etc. Altman writes lush, detached stuff that's kind of sparse the way so many of those early 90's records were and that's why I love this record. His new stuff continues that tradition as it tugs at your heartstrings.

For a first glimpse, "Lost Dream," holds a lot of detached/aloof promise of what is to come. I for one can't wait to hear what Digits calculates next.
