CARNIVALS | Mavi Kara

Carnivals (aka Stew Green of Sheffield, UK) created some of the most wildly eclectic and inventive electronic-based music I’ve heard in awhile. The new record, “Mavi Kara”, is glitchy and warped to the hilt. It’s a highly melodic and hypnotic distortion of synth, guitar, and the odd found percussion. There’s the cool tribal vocal loops of “Leeda”, the strange but beautiful “Drowning” — which seems to begin with the sound of a tape-deck button being pushed (it’s strung together and repeated as percussive rhythm), transitioning into eerie choral howling and synth blips and heavy drums. I fell in love after listening to the first track, “I Can See”. It’s a mysterious shimmer of electronics, debauched twists and IDM contortion blending together with a soulful balance. Highly recommended. — David D. Robbins Jr.
