Co La – “Moody Coup” – [Software Records]
Primary project of producer Matt Papich dishing out a diversity of delightful delectables. Dirty patchwork mosaic of clean bubbly plastic sounds hearkening to an era of tropical exotica and disco-pop soulfulness. Don’t be mistaken, the disjointed dub grooves and cut-up collage beats straddle firmly the tightrope of experimentalism, but with a palatability that is smooth on the swallow. Slurping, giggles, babies and birds; an array of silly synthetic sampling and cheap keyboard tonalities. Light-bodied without being ethereal, playful while still maintaining a concrete tastefulness. This has been called new exotica, avant-luxury, and furniture music: angular in a way that is comfortable and accomodating. Like a sunny spring break in Sarasota sipping on Sweaty Hipsters.
