KAADA - THANK YOU FOR GIVING ME YOUR VALUABLE TIME (2003)


A BEAUTIFUL COLLAGE

THANK YOU FOR GIVING ME YOUR VALUABLE TIME
GENRE`````SOUNDTRACK, ALTERNATIVE, EXPERIMETAL, POST-ROCK, TRIP-HOP
YEAR````````2003


WHY:
Excellent, subtle album by one of Europe most interesting and mystified producers.

ALBUM REVIEW:
This album has the same kind of warm, reverb-y production that Ipecac head honcho Mike Patton often favors (see Fantomas' Director's Cut), and has a collage-type avant-garde pop/rock feel that's not a million miles away from something like Director's Cut or Mr. Bungle's California. Then again, it's certainly not beholden to those influences either: the main inspirations here seem to be hip-hop (especially in terms of the production) and old American R&B and soul music, combined with an unusually user-friendly experimental streak. Basically, Kaada takes isolated samples and loops from old recordings, mixes them together with live instruments and (sometimes) vocals, and creates new songs that are essentially virtual collaborations between musicians from these different times and places. The striking thing about this album, although it's only striking once you try to analyze it, is that it's almost impossible to tell what sound is coming from what record. Whether it's sampled or live or not, or if you know all the recordings he's dealing with, knowing such things won't prevent you from enjoying the music here.

Thank You For Giving Me Your Valuable Time is full of such subtleties, which, rather than merely sounding coy and clever, add some real heart to the album and elevate from just a technically impressive collection of sampling and production trickery into something more.

man am i glad you have this album! my boyfriend and i have this ongoing tradition of burning each other cds for no apparent reason. music is just about the only thing we have in common and lately i've been trying to get him into jazz. of course in our cd burning we always try to outdo each other with better and rarer finds. i use a search engine that browses mediafire and rapidshare but could not find this album, it's a treasure! thanks, totally checking out your other stuff. kudos a million.
