Boomkat Product Review:
Said to be inspired by the compositions of French film scorer Philippe Sarde, this album by new Karaoke Kalk project The 23s taps into a combination of old '70s sounds and those same sorts of sounds as rewired by someone like Air. The overall effect is one of loungey electronic fun - knowingly kitsch but well assembled nonetheless. In fact, the production is a highly appealing romp through jazzy keys, bossa nova beat boxes and even a few post-IDM electronica elements sneaking in under the radar. By no means a major work, Bolivia is nonetheless a nice distraction.
