ALF10

Late at last !

Thick & Dark… The new LP release by The Other Color is a cold landscape tinted of pop and beats… Far from 361, they (his) previous album, we are invited to dive in a vaporous sound architecture. Its hard not to compare it to the analog progressive music of the 80’s and not to which you were able to see the sound of it. A blind listening, closed eyes in a dark room, wide stereo in a quiet room, late in the evening, around 22 with a glass of  fine red wine. Turn the turntable on and pump up the volume untill you can ear the needle scratching the groove. It’s like suede when it’s loud. Track 6 gets you close to JM Jarre or Vangelis wile making you smile as what you thought was sad at first sight, turns out to be sarcastic. I love when music is tuned in with semantics to describe potential spaces. I think about the synthetic lines in track 5 transforming into dance music after being simply noisy and meeting later some gigantic electric harps having a chat with some birds diving in a pink noise & some shy sin waves at the gate of a 50hz factory and ends up as an american old fashioned serie intermission theme with rock accents then flanges et bites a strike of distorted guitar and bright synth just before the silence. It tells and it takes… I can’t even tell if it is music ! As with Eliane Radigue, who with subtle variation drags the ear of the assistance as well as its eyes, this opus is also a visual experience.

So Big Boogers is a one man band. I’ve been knowing him for over a decade and followed the evolution of his music closely. His last album is to die for.
