Before finding his nom de plume Skylar Spence, musician Ryan DeRobertis went under the blissfully American moniker Saint Pepsi. But even before the first listen, I admit I was already feeling a bit cautious: Why the new alias? Every record is shipped in original factory-applied shrink wrap and has never been touched by human hands. Just the name for an outsider artist. But now, as Skylar Spence, signing himself to a record label and starting to play live shows, he emerges from his neon-lit cocoon of cultural commentary, dashing forth into a spotlight that shines too bright, to the point of being blinding. I still have time to figure out what makes something good something great. He was almost homecoming king; even though he ran as a joke, he was runner-up.

. When Ryan DeRobertis announced the name change of his project from Saint Pepsi to Skylar Spence, there was no indication of any stylistic departure, though the change arrived with a musical shift toward faster tempos and more pristine production. To precisely express how this album fits into the discography of DeRobertis, an analogy to the fine arts might be of help. When I meet DeRobertis, he is holding onto his headphones pricy, red by the cord, like a leash without a pet. Ultimately, and unfortunately for the Skylar Spence project, not noteworthy in any particular way. Packaging All items are shipped brand-new and unopened in original packaging. Whereas Saint Pepsi had often used decades-old boogie, disco, and new wave as grist for the sampling mill, Skylar Spence is intent on trafficking more overtly in those genre aesthetics through his own production techniques and vocal contributions.

With Prom King, DeRobertis reorients his music for his new full-band live act and winds up with an album full of tight and enveloping dance tunes. At face value, it may seem an unimportant detail, if anything an improvement over his previous, clearly parodic name. It should not come as a surprise, then, how excited I was listening to this new album by DeRobertis, who in the meantime rechristened himself Skylar Spence. . . .
