Oval : Calidostopia

German electronic music pioneer Markus Popp AKA Oval, whose last LP O – a 70+ track double album – was released in 2010 after a lengthy period of radio silence, has just made a new full-length record available for download via his website. Calidostopia! comprises 16 exclusive pieces recorded over the space of ten days recently in Brazil with seven different South American singers – Agustin Albrieu, Dandara, Aiace, Maite Gadea, Andres Gauldron, Hana Kobayashi and Emilia Suto – and finds Popp’s glitchy, micro-processed productions forming the basis of a rather striking revision of the continent’s traditional rhythms. Stream previews of each track below, and download the whole album (legally and for free) here.


About foamhands

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz. Follow me on Twitter @FoamHandsBlog to receive notifications of new posts and the occasional random brain-fart, and please share links wherever you can. Enjoy!
