  THEM CODES ...THEM CODES
 Cargo HAZ 034

Who is he who is not tempted to rave that the new Broken Beats-album sounded like a vintage version of Country a la Calexico, that it lighted choral fireworks as we know them by the Poliphonic Spree, that it disposed of the elegy of the Beatles, that it was charged with a good portion Kurt Weil’s ease and of Zappa’s folly – and so on, and so on… How could he possibly be wide of the mark? And yet, wouldn’t it be as if he tried to measure the bracing magic of a gentle mid-summer’s night breeze in degrees Centigrade and meters per second?
Kim Munk draws a picture of the world as a scenery, as a stage setting where he has remained a stranger, with the raw melancholy of the leper, with the plaintive yearning of the young child crying for his mother, he orchestrates the dreams of innocence men have lost in their becoming – and speaks out our hearts, out of all of our hearts. Fatal, as the universal Donald Duck of his own history, the stalking Dane ricochets on the bewilderment of existence, mutating to the cue ball of the inevitable, in a way Walt (Disney) couldn’t have cartooned better. Now shouting in triumph, now sunk in despair. Music that is blooming straight from the source. Orchestrated introspection. Symphony of being. Fleeting, ephemeral - and bit by bit programmatic like you haven’t seen since Noah, and propagandistic like you haven’t heard since Dylan.
