PRODUCT NOTE: The 7" tracklisting is: Loss For Words (Solvent's CompuRhythm Mix) b/w Loss For Words (Vector Lovers Remix 7" Edit)

Hard to believe it's been six years since Solvent's Apples & Synthesizers, the immaculately composed synth-pop opus whose Toronto-based producer came to define the early Ghostly aesthetic. And yet, here we are in 2010, listening to Jason Amm's new single as Solvent, "Loss for Words"—the first taste of Solvent's upcoming full-length Subject to Shift, and a sterling example of what happens when classic pop songwriting meets analogue circuitry. Buzzing synths, crisply understated drum programming, and an air of gentle melancholy—it's as if no time has passed at all. And yet, "Loss for Words" is also a significant step forward for Amm, as his singing has matured into a clear, organic tenor and sweet orchestral sings dominate the song's climax. "Loss for Words" is a robotic ballad with a human heart.

The "Loss for Words" digital single comes packaged with two remixes: Solvent's "CompuRhythm Remix", which pares the song's starry haze down to a minimalist series of blips and clicks; and Berlin producer Vector Lovers' take, which busies up "Loss for Words" synthetic swirl into a club-ready electro track.
