CD: Spaceman

This is one of those CDs that really smudges the line between music and audio performance art.

Carp sets the stage for his third CD with a few moments of synthetic drama. Strange rhythms, other world effects and compelling lyrics with heavy processing create a very dark and moody tone. By track 3, the clouds lift and we see a sunnier side of Carp’s music. It all works together for a most interesting listening experience. Quite well done. While I enjoyed the all of the many moods of this CD, that 3rd track, “Fantasies Of You,” is our choice for iplay.
