We’ve wanted to to re-release this album for some time,” says ADULT.’s Adam Lee Miller, “but we weren’t ready until now. We have some new material in the pipeline, and we thought this would be a nice way to reintroduce ourselves.” It is indeed a nice way for the hugely respected Detroit duo to herald their return to the world of music, especially for anyone who missed out on Resuscitation the first time around: the album’s never been available digitally, and the CD version has been out of print for some years now. The reissue thus presents the chance to own one of the more influential records of the early 2000s — either on double 12″ LP or, for the first time, as a digital release. When it first dropped in 2001, Resuscitation served as a de facto introduction to the duo, collecting a bunch of songs on CD that had only previously been available on hard-tofind singles and EPs. Eleven years later, it does the same thing, except this time around, we can see just how influential its creators’ work has been — and ADULT.’s music only sounds more remarkable with the benefit of hindsight. At the time, Resuscitation’s combination of crisp beats, squelch-laden synths and Nicola Kuperus’ detached monotone sounded like a broadcast from the future, steeped in the analog synth sounds of forebears like Kraftwerk but possessed of an ultramodern sheen all its own. The duo’s visual aesthetic was just as important — Kuperus’ photography adorned all their album packaging (including this re-release), and their live shows drew on a sense of what a reviewer once called “detached intrigue.” Echoes of ADULT.’s aesthetic can be heard today in everything from today’s surfeit of analog synth-toting minimal wave bands to the highly stylized divas who dominate the pop charts. But really, in 2012 Resuscitation still sounds like no-one else. With new material on the horizon — starting with a double A-side cover version single, due out November 5th — it’s time to fall in love with ADULT
