More Info

Wieder weird stuff auf beta-lactam: ein US-Projekt mit dster-schwlstigen, elektronisch-psychedelischen, oder verspielt-experimentellen Stcken (bei dem auch Viola und Sitar zum Einsatz kommen), gratwandern sie zwischen Irrsinn und Ernst bzw. lassen den Hrer im unklaren, ob er das nun gut finden soll oder nicht....und das sexuell-dadaesk-explizite Cover passt zu der Musik eigentlich berhaupt nicht. Das ganze im Vollfarbklappcover, Seite 4 ist mit Artwork beklebt, viele inserts.
Cacophony plus catastrophe divided by calliope minus colostomy=crepe-noizette! Sound sound off like a delicious blend of fresh When and finely ground Aphex Twin mixed with just a dash of Pascal Comelade drool. 13 tracks of dark dementia sewn together as a quilt of mini symphonic diversions, embroidered with bits and bytes and twisted sub rhythms and the occasional driving breakbeat. Whimsical and dada-esque with solid musical foundations, this record can also stand as rightful heir to the likes of Didier Bocquet and early Ian Boddy in its sequenced charms. And let's not forget our Frog forebears Albert Marcoeur and Etron Fou Leloublan for that certain "je ne sais quoi" factor. Ah, And as if these were not enticements enough, the gorgeous full-colour artwork may just win you some free counceling sessions should it be seen in your possession by an upright citizen type. A capricious and captivating compendium that sustains the continued use of "C" descriptor words containing "P's" to describe it, saving of course for "crap," which this is never, though you may be compelled to do so when you see and hear how beautiful and odd this record is and becomes. Please to file in experimental...barring that, I should think that rock or electronic would be a fair second, or electronica just gone wrong! If you work at Tower, just steal it and order more later!!!!!!!! [press-release]
