Farbror Resande Mac / Aficionado

Test Pressing, Review, Dr Rob, Aficionado, Stockholm, Sweden, Moonboots, Jason Boardman, Farbror Resande Mac, Is It Balearic?

On this E.P. of varying tempo the slower it gets, the better it gets. Opening trance shapes emerge from Roland`s silver box. In a drama of nightfall they writhe like snakes, guitar runs suggesting rattlers at a Joshua Tree lit by unforgettable fire, or pythons readying as Jonny Nash jams in the jungle. Crockett & Tubbs chase from Miami Beach to Transfer Station Blue. Baldelli wrong-speed beats have “Sade wading through treacle” (Copyright Ruf Dug). Seductive Soul Jazz moves languid like lovers who believe they have time, fooled by passion`s drug, fools for each other. A saxophone coils like the smoke from a cigarette in the dark, has them aroused, everything hard, consumed and lost in whispered forevers` confidence trick. Undressing and naked, life`s transience become a sadness momentarily banished, though it still watches in shadows and is there for those that can`t help but look. Me, I see `80s film stars in soft focus, half-light, lip-gloss and lingerie. An idealized promise of the only true cure.
