Thiaz Itch: El baile de los Fantasmas

Netherlands based net label WM Recordings has introduced me to many amazing experimental, digital and plain other types of artists over the years. That is to say they focus on music that's just different and France's Thiaz Itch is a prime example.

Self described as "cartoon-eclectic-breakcore (something like poum scrft pim irgch gnarf poin poin)" Thiaz Itch creates fun computeresque soundscapes that are surprisingly catchy and listenable. Although the programming is quite good, I'm most impressed with the complex rhythm and percussive elements to this album. It's not quite fast paced enough for dance music, but it's definitely something that would liven any party up and cause several of your invitees to go "Wow! Who is that???"

El baile de los Fantasmas is fantastic album showcasing haunting sounds, complex rhythms and tongue-in-cheek melodies. Usage of organ and xylophones are an interesting touch. The songs are atmospheric and would fit in perfectly with any sort of ghost/goblin or space-inspired play list.

I mean funny in a good way - not like `this smells funny, throw it away.' It's got a sense of humor and is good.
