Paul Nazca - Scandale

Patrick Chardronnet! James Holden! What have you wrought! If you haven’t heard “Eve By Day,” or the first Oxia Speicher, or “The Sky Was Pink,” then you’ll probably consider this record to be utter genius. If this is the case you may want to try the new wonder drug, penicillin, and replace the logs under your massive immovable stone with a device known as a “wheel.” Of course this sarcasm is scuppered by the fact that “Sleeping,” Nazca’s version of “Eve By Day,” still gives the synapses a little twitch. It’s not bad by any means, a little ravier than its grim counterparts, and it’s got a much bigger kick drum on it. On the flip, “Western” is a barely passable piece of electro-disco, but “Svell” is a nice piece of house/trance, like Lawrence with pills instead of black and white pictures.
