Filmmaker – Noir Times [HC Records]

| | , , , , , ,

The Valencian label HC Records returns to vinyl as a format with a fifth release by Filmmaker, an artist of short but intense career, with five albums released in just over a year and with a humanized sound and quite personal.

The Colombian artist fuses several musical trends that converge with a post-punk aesthetic of textures and degraded environments. Noir Times transports you to an apparently neglected world, with dirty sound treatments that evoke the aged quality offered by the most archaic analog machines.

The first cut of A-side is the powerful “Extinction Wave”, an effective electro percussive composition, where a dominant bass drives the fate of production around dark melodies and passages loaded with sinister epicity.

“Beast Folk” takes us on the path of Post punk: distorted guitars, sharp synthesizers and a constant sweeping feeling of primitive unreality.

B-side hides in its first cut one of the great jewels of vinyl, “Noir Times”, a theme that gives its name to Ep. An exciting production where Filmmaker develops all its melodic potential focused on the dance floor, enhanced by the dynamics of broken rhythms to generate an instant hymn, electro synth straight to your brain.

“Cult Founders” transports us fully to a ritual of ancestral synthesizers, oriental sounds and crispy metallic percussions worthy of a mystical pagan celebration that hatch in a musical orgy for the ear.

Filmmaker closes the vinyl with Vestigium, a dreamlike journey where our senses are calmed, once again giving prominence to the melodies on a calm but forceful rhythm fractured around guitars loaded with murky echoes of the past.

Release: October 21th, 2019.
