This is CrapFi (Floppy)

By • Jan 31st, 2018 • Category: long players

Shoegaze as a musical genre is somehow simple but complex – what can seem like one theme may reveal shifting layered patterns underneath.

However, following a lengthy break, the former leader of cerebral noisewave act Tantrum went back to basics, and has now completed the third album in this series under his new monicker – taken from the budget keyboards which feature heavily on his work.

Having moved on from the monophonic drones of the first of the trio of releases, ‘This Is…’ contains actual tunes, plus rhythms from the famous Casio inbuilt drum machines, leading to a lo-fi mix of Kraftwerk and Grandaddy.

In all it’s a mesmerising set, like the soundtrack to a sci-fi movie, about a dying planet. But one with a great score and as well as a happy ending.
