Propergol y Colargol, Charly Roger. Charly Roger. Songs for Fuzzycandy LP [Autres Directions In Music – MOULIN007, 2004]

July 12th, 2004

charly_rogerThe seventh release on Adim is brought to you by Propergol y Colargol. Their album entitled “Charly Roger. Songs for fuzzycandy LP” is Moulin007 it’s great. “No Particular Destination” sets of in a beatless and dark direction. “Il Covo Club” adds some structure to the sonic picture and its understated beats are decidedly glitchy. “Aunties Annies” contains echoed and layered disharmonic sounds fused with straight-forward yet feather-light beats creating a haunting effect and it’s quite nice at that. “Ass.Music.Etna.Zö Club” keeps the dark atmosphere with its beatless and desolate soundscapes. And it continues in “Benjamine’s Spasm” sounding like a recording of an alien radio transmission slowly being transformed into a slightly more earthly sounding song. “Café Trauma” if not feeling all that well maybe you shouldn’t go? In “-22-” there’s a catch, it’s reversed and watch those speakers/headphones when the treble onslaught sets in, intriguing. In “Forum Stadpark” Propergol y Colargol show a friendlier side with a sounding-like-harmonica-melody, distinct beats and a lot of atmosphere, but the question is can you trust them? “Hitchhicking Non-stop” is also treading on the gentler side of things and is virtually beatless. “Nordstern” and “O’fantasmo” conclude the album. The sound is very individual and maybe not on a beginners level, I for one find the “Charly Roger. Songs for Fuzzycandy LP” thoroughly enjoyable in some strange mysterious way. Adim full speed ahead, never mind the icebergs!
