Martin Gore MG (Mute)

Depeche Mode’s Martin Gore continues the minimalist electronics of his VCMG project with former bandmate Vince Clarke on MG, an ambitious 16-track instrumental album. MG’s intention is to be filmic, and it is, particularly on opener “Pinking” and true-to-its-title “Stealth.” At times, it sounds like a soundtrack to a hopeless and dark dystopian nightmare, such as on the stark and uncomfortable “Exalt.” But at other times, Gore taps into sculpted Berghain-style unyielding techno, exemplified on the percussive “Brink.”
