- Salon Des Amateurs by Hauschka
I was about to go over to the CD player and switch this album on in order to provide you with the insightful review you need and have just realised the bloody thing has been playing for 10 minutes. As I succeed on a diet of malaise and pure hatred its no suprise that I've failed to be wooed by its presumably subtle depths. This is different in mood to what I've previously heard by Hauschka in that it's less of your 'chocolate box romanticism' (copyright: some idiot) and more Philip Glass-inspired ivory twinkling ad infitum. Problem is, it washes straight over me. I have absolutely zero interest in the music being produced. It's clever but soulless. Piano twinklings fed into a laptop and emerging completely indistinct, I'm having a hard time connecting with it. In the interests of fairness then I'll describe it a bit further. Each track is based on a looped piano, on which other pianos and assorted machinery and percussion are added, this is augemented by melodica and other flotsam and jetstam. The effect is jittery, jaunty, restless.
