Review: Laudanum trilogy

Filed under: reviews — Administrator @ 1:12 am

aufAbwegen #34 magazine:

„fatagaga – LAUDANUM“

„Mehr als Ambient produziert das Kölner Projekt fatagaga, welches seinerzeit bereits eine Veröffentlichung bei Soleilmoon landen konnte. Die CD-Rs Laudanum Vol 2 und Vol 3 (Satori Hype Records) evozieren Unterwasserlandschaften und tiefe Höhlen, an deren Ende aber immer Licht zu flimmern scheint. Dunkele pulsierende Töne schleichen sich an die Oberfläche, manchmal durchbricht ein zarter Rhythmus die Klangewebe – wer Bad Sector oder Crianoclast mag, der sollte hier nachhören, Tip!!!“

Laudanam vol.1 by Fatagaga.
released by Satori Hype / Soleilmoon

Reviewed by alex

Drone music with ambient and white-noisy complexities that aurally remind me of breathing, the rushing of blood, trickling water, bone-socket pops and muffled insect chirping. All the tracks are worth a listen. *Recommend*

Good songs: 2,5,8

Review: Laudanum Vol 1

fatagaga – Laudanum Vol 1 (Soleilmoon)

Gentle reader, you may recall my lauding Mute Records with the phrase once „If it’s on Mute, buy it!“ Yes, I too have my pet causes. I can steadfastly state that I will only ever use this on two other record labels, Sub Rosa and Soleilmoon/Staalplaat. And look, it’s a Soleilmoon CD …

The name „fatagaga“ comes from the collages of our old friends Max Ernst and Hans Arp. So far, so good. Laudanum is a term used for a tincture of opium that was all the range among the effete artists of the victorian age. We all know what opium does. Laudanum is somnambulent music, all gurgling synths and tectonic arrangements. The press release draws comparisons to Brian Eno’s Apollo and Jon Hassel’s Fourth World: Possible Musics, which is not so far off. I also pick up traces of the more stately, older FAX records, Terre Thaemlitz’s ultra-minimal outlings, and, in particular, an oldie from Instinct Ambient, The SETI Project.

Very detached in mood and time, an album like this sounds (trying to avoid cheeseball ramifictions) alien. I want to take this album to the top of a hill far from all civilization and feel the wind against my skin. Hell, I want to have albums like these as the only artifacts of our civilization in my personal collective unconscious. (MS 01/02)

Review: Laudanum Vol 1

Fatagaga – Laudanum Vol 1
Soleilmoon Recordings
SOL 111 Cd

Note to Fatagaga: Do not pepper your press releases with hyperbole and comparisons! I would personally question the wisdom of naming influences like Eno, Steve Roach and Thomas Koener. It’s all so unnecessary because this is actually a fine piece of work. It rarely breaks sweat and occasionally the low bass drones mess with your speakers in a „maybe I should have mastered this recording“ kind of way. Laudanum is a land of half-light and flickering moths. It is a dream world that both invites you in and shuts the door gently. The walls seem to mutter to you in words that you can’t quite understand. It is not an entirely unpleasant place to be.

fatagaga @ i-tunes

Filed under: radio — Administrator @ 6:31 pm

nach diversen Komplikationen ist es endlich soweit:

fatagaga ist im i-tunes-store

Unter Mithilfe von Soleilmoon Recordings konnte meine CD „fatagaga – Laudanum vol 1“ in die Datenbank von i-tunes gebracht werden. Wer also keine Lust hat sich die Original-CD für 13,- EUR direkt bei Satori Hype Records zu kaufen, kann das ganze Album jetzt für 9,99 EUR downloaden. Man kann auch einzelne Tracks für 0,99 EUR kaufen. Alles was man braucht, um diese neue Form des Musikkonsums zu genießen, bietet das i-tunes Interface, das man mit ein paar Mausklicks installiert hat.
Viel Spaß!

keiner weiß, wo sich diese verrückten DJs das Material für ihre Programme zusammensuchen. Aber sie tun es und wissen, wo man es findet:

fatagaga wird im Radio WFMU gespielt

WFMU-Internetradio kann ich bestens empfehlen, nicht nur weil sie fatagaga spielen. Ich hatte den Sender schon eine Weile frequentiert und super gefunden, bevor ich in einer Playlist über meine eigene Musik gestolpert bin. Aber ich gebe zu, das hebt die gute Laune. Man braucht wohl eine flatrate, sonst wirds zu teuer, aber wenn man die hat, kommt man über WFMU an die unglaublichste Musik. Hier Links zu fatagaga-haltigen Shows von WMFU:
