This new six-track offering, Ko Yo, showcases the cream of the dreamy, abstract and lo-fi pop of London/Berlin based outfit Paco Sala. Brimming with warped synths and crunchy beats, the EP is a great example of modern day avant-garde pop and is ultimately the produce of unrestraint and dazed creative juices.

Yes! And other such cries of jubilation: My first review in what seems like weeks (because it is -- you know, Ch***mas and all that) is a little beauty of a mini LP from the London - Berlin axis of sophisto-tronica. Paco Sala’s Antony and Birch have once again delivered the goods on six tracks of slightly eerie yet uplifting -- and surprisingly visceral -- focused hypno-pop.
The record apparently documents Haitian voodoo -- hence the creeping skeletal multi-rhythms and vocals filtering through -- lost chances (not important right now) and… wait for it… passive vegetarianism. And, fair play to them, as meat substitutes go those Cauldron sausages are very delicious.
Throughout the record there are wonderfully skewed synths, squashed and chopped beats, expanding ambience and expansive electronic throbs. Bass pulses and pushing drums are crisp amongst the luscious haze of synth and vocal. Those female vocals speaking obliquely of the means of the soul’s travels and travails. And even the occasional cut-up jungle break here and there. Can’t say fairer.
