I began to listen to this track as the elevated M train was passing by my office (apartment) and its shuffling beginning blended into the sound atmosphere enveloping. But Matt Papich never lets a sound be. The beat, to him, is a Rube Goldberg Machine: every note knocks into the next one, setting it off. Vocals are abbreviated and often pitched; in Love Nest they are splatterpaint and then spackle being smoothed to the side of a bowl. On this new cassette, Soft Power Memento, Co La explores further the way that sounds can be played off of each other for humor, brevity, and other oblique emotive effect.
