Product Description

**Includes an MP3 download coupon redeemable from the label** Also known to use the alias Feathers (though not to be confused with Asa Irons' freak-folk troupe of the same name), Comic Wow is a group formed around the creative nucleus of Eddie Alonso and Eric Rasco. Using an array of often unusual or vintage instruments (from the Farfisa Mini Compact to the Suzuki Omnichord through to the Baldwin Electric Harpsichord) The band set about making a kind of synth-fuelled prog that sounds much like a time capsule of '70s library music. Which is appropriate given the sub-division of Asthmatic Kitty this is released on. The label says that its Library Catalog Music offshoot is "a series of instrumental albums designed for possible use in films and television, background sounds for home or office, or personal needs, such as relaxation, stimulation, meditation, concentration, or elevation." Recruiting a host of additional musicians and engineers (Tortoise's John McEntire among them) Alonso and Rasco have made a fantastic sounding record, carrying shades of Stereolab, Broadcast and the Ghost Box label. There's undoubtedly an arch, knowingly retro feel to all this, but since it's so lovingly and accurately reproduced - and all beautifully recorded to boot - you can't help but admire the likes of the queasily upbeat electric piano and lapsteel jaunt 'Jazz Computer', the Raymond Scott-like analogue country of 'Bad Ballet' and the lavish Italo disco routines of 'Miami Song Tennis 2'. Recommended.
