After a couple of small releases on Dusted Wax Kingdom and Keller, Paul Schröder’s Aparde project unveils it’s debut full length on Ki Records. Atmospheric techno meets Moderat pop “song” direction, emotively enrapturing and so slickly produced it’ll make weep. Available on LP and CD.

8/10 Laurie Staff review, 25 October 2017

Exciting debut album times for Paul Schroder / Paul Camillo Rachel (I’m not sure which is preferred). Whatever the name, it’s Aparde that you’ll know him by, and here is his intricately produced first electronic pop record on Ki Records.

Glass spends a lot of it’s time looking inwards, taking a forlorn, downcast glance behind itself. Yes, I’m giving the album a physical body to represent the emotions you’ll feel when listening to it. Deal with it. He has a soft, distant vocal style that is very much content to stay in the back seat leaving his brilliant production chops to come to the fore. Nicely recorded percussions that could have been sourced from anywhere intertwine with some deliciously imperfect analog synth chordery on a modest bed of reverb. Never use too much reverb. Ian + the shoegaze brigade, take note. This has been Wednesday music lessons, I’ve been your host Loz, you’re a great crowd.

It’s like Rival Consoles meets Moderat and Kiasmos with a distant hint of Tycho. Myself, it’s the elements of the last 2 in this music that I’m not such a fan of, but the aspects of RC + M more than make up for it. In fact, he seems to avoid falling into the usual traps that Kiasmos and Tycho do, that is, always dropping a weak 4x4 over some uninspired chords and too..much...reverb. Some of the percussive layers are reminiscent of Burial and the skeletal shuffle crew, at other times it’s Nils Frahm. Whatever the case, it’s grand.
