Todd Drootin makes happy fun-time techno, the kind of playful, whimsical music that would work best soundtracking Japanese anime or chase sequences involving Tonka trucks. He’s a compulsive tinkerer; with their squishy sound effects, caffenaited tracks like See you in Tokyo and She’s dead to me have the feel of push-button improv, as if Drootin is checking the full capabilities of his circuitry whule he’s recording. Unlike so much electro-funk, Sings the Blues offers a lot of interesting terrain to explore. Grade: B+
