The decorating guy has just started drilling and fixing plasterboard. But it's OK - I'm listening to Danish electronic oddball Goodiepal. His blending of both unusual and familiar musical tropes is the stuff of legend, his art-prankster reputation highly regarded. But I'm not sure I totally get it. A customer has commented that this set is three hours long and the sides of vinyl require listening to in a certain sequence. I'm not sure I can (be arsed to) do this weighty conceptual project justice in the time-frame I'm allowed.
You get him having a long chat to the audience before the commencement of a pretty, bucolic Scandinavian electro lollop, sorta like early Royksopp/Lemon Jelly pretty, which is ruined by him occasionally uttering the title of the album/book/project/joke in a comedy compère stylee. Then his visionary mangling together of old detritus such as traditional folk, drunken toytown madness and field recordings comes to the fore. Like a spellbinding auditory hallucination, this is where he shines for me and is truly comes over as the sonic magician, rather than the piss artist.
I'm giving this album a cautious grade as I've simply not the time to indulge the entirety of its sprawling length. If you are interested in sound-collage and experimental electronic japery created by a genuine auteur and true master of the field then I'd take a punt on this, 'MPICC' is essentially a really interesting and labyrinthine exploration of neo-psychedelic sensory overload, cool ambient techno textures; wonky disco biscuits and traditional European folk; discreet chattering wallpaper all laced with a faint whiff of wanton eccentricity.
An envelope-pushing recording as ever from Mr. Goodiepal.
10/10 craig Customer review, 1st July 2014
Real great, flashing like treasure, really enjoyed it, you get three hours and it seems to me your meant to listen to in the order of Side A then Side C then Side E and then B, D and F or the other way around. But I just listened to it in alphabetical order to mix things up. It's mostly just decorated in the typical Goodiepal sound, especially Sides A,C and E the other sides sound good too.
