James Ferraro – Night Dolls With Hairspray LP
2010. Limited Edition
El espíritu insobornable de James Ferraro se mantiene en su último disco, un mosaico de canciones a medio acabar que elevan el listón experimental (y acaso comercial) de la escena del pop hipnagógico. (via Playgroundmag)
Billed as James Ferraro’s ‘pop’ album, the much anticipated Night Dolls With Hairspray stands as a massive evolutionary step forward for his twisted H-Pop vision. Night Dolls... features some of Ferraro’s most fully-realised songs, all steeped in a hazy off-the-dial FM production feel. Ferraro uses pitch-shift vocals to transform himself into a pubescent adolescent with masochistic fantasies involving getting flogged in front of the class (“Leather High School”), obsessing over monster movies and turning himself into an answering machine for mutant Valley Girls with toxic make-up. This is one of the most twisted visions of teenage ever to make it to tape and the production is pretty striking, with chiming Sixties garage band guitars twisting into weird “paranoid” style metal guitar while warped tape work mutates snippets of symphonic national anthems and advertising jingles into a fluorescent mass for 20th century ‘youth culture’. There’s a heavy masochistic vibe to the whole thing that works as the perfect metaphor for Ferraro’s alternately hypnotised and horrified attitude towards the pop narcotic and the songs have a similar appeal, alternately macabre and soaringly beautiful, breaking down into scrunchy tape-noise one minute and exploding into euphoric fireworks the next. It’s almost impossible to work out just how Ferraro creates this fantastically complex and multi-layered vision of new pop futures but I’ll take his teenage symphonies to Transsexuals over any of Brian Wilson’s work. A major evocation of contemporary demon channels and a singular work that leaves virtually all of his H-Pop contemporaries looking like duds with bad taste in music. Comes with a colour insert and a free download. Highly recommended.
