Exercises by CFCF
Released: Apr 2012
Label: Paper Bag Records
The brutalist architecture featured on the cover of CFCF's mini-album Exercises belies the soft, supple music featured within. Recorded in part while the Montreal musician was living in Paris and had most of his gear in storage, its stripped-down palette of piano and synthesizer speaks to the emotive potential of extreme economy. Ryuichi Sakamoto's piano work helped inspire the record's meditative tones; so did the romantic pop of David Sylvian, whose "September" is covered here. A short, sweet set, the record goes down as easy as breathing.
