My Fellow Americans EP / Cassette Tape, Digital / PAR054

Gaffe of a Lifetime

“The music of the 21th century is on the verge of collapsing. But that is not due to musicians having nothing left to fill the gaps with. It is our flat societies. It’s us who have fallen flat. With Gaffe Of A Lifetime, what you hear is Connecticut’s 19-year-old Alexandre Louis who has interpreted his post-modern desensitization and ennui in a looping but relaxing, meditative but glitchy debut EP called The Errors: A Kingdom Of Loss. ” – Ghost FM

With My Fellow Americans EP, what we are hearing is a music coined “New Basement Swing.” This is not vaporwave, no this is a dark and crunchy era, fascinated with the obtuse, the void, and the current state of desperate times. The resultant beats find you zoned in-and-out, at times forcing you to let your limbs run loose, before gripping you into a cold hypnotic groove. A bizarre sort of distorted and experimental club music, Gaffe of a Lifetime confronts the listener with a dense yet delicate layering of sonic ideas. We are left to ponder the deteriorating world as we trudge on.
