Uncategorisable high-concept ambient pop on the mysterious Fondation Petya Sasser Rike label.
Here is a whole world in a jewel case. A near future world possibly. A meeting of solo Donald Fagen, John Le Carre in monsoon sweat mode and Ben Gazzara in Saint-Jack drawn by Moebius. A world-weary pan-global post-catastrophe pop music. Made out of icy synths, warm popping bass,paranoid vocals, and rolling repetition.
The voice says “I’m so bored with earthly aesthetics”.I’m imagining it’s the voice of a marooned, defunded and deeply confused colonial functionary. Strung-out in heaven’s high and hitting an all time low. A lost and lonely toxic male stranded. The colonist of the title.
Or maybe it’s the voice of someone more familiar. Just a nice guy trying to make pop out of difficult music: a Jim O’Rourke, or a Steve Beresford. Staying on top of things, diffidently existing one step ahead of the curve, sadder than he lets on. Either way it’s a fascinating and deeply enjoyable album full of unlikely details and strange emotions.
