Boomkat Product Review:
Huntington Beach, CA resident, Karmelloz impresses with this eponymous debut album of gauzy, near-future beat projections. 'Karmelloz' feels to us a perfect manifestation of that strange, fractally forming genre we'll refer to as Internet music - a sound drawing its sustenance from a rhizomic spectrum of sources; from '80s movie soundtracks to noise, R&B and ambient musics and reforming them in etheric, compellingly re-balanced equations. It's a lush experience, switching tack from AFXian breakbeats and mottled John Hughes references on '2 Fuckn EZ' to the smudged, para-dimensional swoon of 'Grls', and onto the slyly ambiguous emotional triggers in 'Lawofattraction' and ambient footwork in the luscious 'Lost Without You', or valium-screwed psych on 'Voodoo' and the super-melodic, hi-tech tessellations of 'Dying In A Starbucks Bathroom'. It's all strongly tipped to fans of Wanda Group, D/P/I, Physical Therapy, Jam City, E+E.
