Patrick Cortes' previous direction as a singer-songwriter shows in the electronica of his new identity, Animal Weapon. Where some laptop artists create cool sounds for cool sounds' sake, Cortes' pieces are structured and directional. His Good Luck draws on his songwriting strengths as well as production, with airy, often gentle ambience wrapped around damaged guitar, synthetic lows and skittering, mid-tempo percussion. Sleepy, half-whispered vocals complete the chilly, though ultimately depressed, vibe. Even instrumental tracks like the intriguing "Flightpill" maintain a sort of dreamland narrative. Oneiric and Future Flutes open. —Corbie Hill
