Comment: it is not surprise at all I have been fascinated with the aesthetics of The Hathaway Family Plot for a while because every step by a Buffalo, US-based artist called Kevin McFadden is worth to be parsed and thought off. It is interesting and intriguing. In comparison to his previous albums he used to incorporate new elements and axial aspects to the mix and making it in the way to change the paradigm being set out by him previously. The current 14-notch issue is overwhelmed by stomping noises, designed deranged noise sculptures (Dymaxion; Not Gonna Leave), gentle yet uncanny improvisations of having neither time nor space and some mutilated vocal lines and if to compare it to the artist previous issue Having No Alternative it is more inclined to be a successor of No Wave music and the aesthetic of beatniks. Its purpose is to to be set free from oppressive conventions and annoying traditions being an effect of a society of having no future and certain plan to transcend recent economic and survival understanding. At least it seems so while Kevin McFadden likes to manipulate with it and finally destroy it by deconstructing it into something new and challenging. Indeed, one part of the whole it is made up of thought-provoking sounds but the rest of it reveals a huge emotional impact on one's weary sensations and resigned soul. It can be concluded it is ultimately a positive plan to be set out for the sake of all of us. Indeed, by listening to the whole I can imagine it as if a sonic counterpoint of a beatnik text being converted into. But it does not mean the artist dislikes silent moments. For instance, Elegy for Thomas Kincaid The Younger (1661-1726) is a sublime number of a droning organ and a dense harmonica (?). However, The Locks reminds of the art of Robert Wyatt. In general, Mechanics In The Age Of Artistic Reproduction is a fine outing which is a chapter along the path paved by Kevin McFadden. Alarms are up there everywhere but we need more and more surprises to cope with them. Digital simulacra and the simulacra of real life are just nugatory objects to deceive himself/herself thoroughly. It is not the solution at all.

Vincent Casanova – Cosmic Bikini EP (2005)



  • House 
  • Tech-house 
  • Club dance 
  • Electronic music 
  • Electro house

Comment: first of all, it is quite annoying to review house and club music related issues because those ones are quite orthodox by its nature except if a style is still in the beginning of its formation. For example, Vincent Casanova's 4-notch outing is a strong statement through electro house and tech-house pathways. All the mandatory elements which make music loveable are nicely represented over there - catchy rhythms, iterative rhythmic patterns, hovering synthesisers atop. At times you will forget yourself in the midst of those trance-inducing gaits. What else to add? I like the title. Even more I would like to know who is supposed to wear the cloth? The outing is a bit in the discography of Montrèal-based imprint Epsilonlab. Solid work.
