We got a live one here! YES! Something good to review that wasn't instantly snapped up by Mikey - a.k.a Review-Droid 4000 - 'He refuses to do anything but review and sit down' (“action” figure due September '13). Digitalis sound as excited about this little beauty as I am and I can see why. Konntinent dude Anthony Harrison has found a new outlet for his musical musings, this time focusing in on hip-hop, Italo-disco, & synth-infused pop music - my three favourite genres - and he's packaged it all up as new project Paco Sala. On board for the ride is vocalist Leyli who brings with her a soulful delivery reminiscent of a overtly confident Inga Copeland crossed with Nite Jewel. The resulting sound is effortless and magical. Harrison's productions on 'Ro-Me-Ro' are kinda thin and distant in a similar style to the Peaking Lights LP '936', they even possess a little of that dubbed-out flavour with washed out synths and filter-crushed beats making up the bulk of his musical arsenal. Ghostly abstract moments are littered throughout the album including spaced out abstract beat destruction and layers of submerged vocals. These act as excellent subliminal ways through to the more focused songs but for the most part work excellently to blur the line between abstract and non-abstract pop forms. Gonna need more spins but on first listen this is one of the best albums I've heard in a while.
