Disco is the sixth production from the charismatic Puyo Puyo. This latest release puts forward a rather large selection of electronic pop references, giving prominent parts to voice and groovy melodies. This album is a delicious witches brew of German new-wave, Psychopolka, Turbopop and that little Puyesque je-ne-sais-quoi, iodiosyncratic dissonant melodies, glitch and kitsch licks.
Sharp uptempo beats adventurously push the thirteen tracks into the punctuated fiefdom of the punchy manifesto (P is for Puyo, Eddie the Head), as well as into the incantatory refrains of 80's keyboards (Up and away, Amour), while passing through acid-disco (Grave Groove), industrial-cinematic (Robot robot, Six kings six pigs) and even dark-wave (I fall, completely berserkte, Spleen)
Each composition creates a sonic universe with a singular narrative, appealing like a love song earworm and often with wake-up-the-dead energy.
