Connect_Icut – Small Town By The Sea | ImpattoSonoro

Seriously, what is it with Italians and connect_icut? Here’s how Google Translate figures it…

" Small Town by the Sea " is being proposed as the work in the studio ‘s most ambitious and accessible emerging Canadian electronic experimenter , who on this occasion has decided to offer a special dedication to the parent , in that of Vancouver.

If the term ” ambitious ” there is nothing to complain ( after all it is all well and good to feed a robust estimate in their own ability , provided that it is established and not tending to egocentrism ) , about what “accessible” there would be something more to detect, starting from the assumption that no work mother of experimental electronic music that you respect should never be regarded as “accessible” .

Therefore pleased to hear (in some cases re- hear) the six tracks of ” Small Town by the Sea ” and find that the whole album does not comply with all the conditions of the authors. Between beats surreal , well-chosen samples and a constant underlying melancholy that envelops slowly in a peaceful and relaxing mood , ” Small Town by the Sea ” is more than an album a real psychic journey , and not something that manages to any musician .

One of those albums that if you accidentally close your eyes and let yourself carry, then opened them again after twenty years, only to discover that the past is just a matter of minutes.

This review comes from a Belgian print magazine called RifRaf. Despite being a Canadian citizen and the son of a French teacher, I don’t really know what it says. But they gave it three stars, so it can’t be too bad, right? Also, you’ve gotta love “Chris Watson, anyone?”

I think this might be the first review of “Small Town by the Sea” and it’s an extremely enthusiastic one, even if it does imply the album sounds like a compilation of Orb B-sides!
