"Decivilize After Consumption" CD

Nexsound PQP

Genre: electronic, electro-pop, post-rock

Barcelona, Spain

Feb 27, 2009

Also on Indieville: Bluermutt selects his ten crucial records!

Decivilize After Consumption brings on more melodic electronic quirkiness from fine Ukrainian imprint Nexsound's PQP series. Andrey Kiritchenko and his unique label have been carving out an intriguing niche for themselves on the electronic scene, and Bluermutt's avant-mess of techno, electro-pop, and post-rock is a fine addition to the ongoing story. This record is an elaborate and melodic journey with several highlights. Opener "Welcome to a Bluer Blue Sky" is a whimsical yet foot-moving romp, while the absolute top of the tops on this disc is the one-two punch of cranial post-rock/electro gem "Fukikin' Jimmy from Here" and brooding soundscape "Jimmy Coda." The rest of the disc has its share of highs (Plone-esque "Before Going to Bed," urgent finale "More About Him Later") and lows (bland "Old School Lesbians vs. the 21st Century," irritating "Metallic Concepts for D and M"), and even a Family Guy sample, but the overall impression is certainly a positive one. Keep Bluermutt in mind.
