Outside (Paper Bag)


Montreal multi-instrumentalist Michael Silver, known as CFCF, changes it up a touch on his second full-length album. Rhythm is now more an atmosphere inducer than a stoker of physical response. Opener "Beyond Light" throbs with tribal, primeval power to a make a little electronic noodling much more entrancing than it would otherwise be. Silver sings on a few tracks, some with harmony backup, an extra sonic element to even out the blips and eddies. He's a serious keyboard collector. Opening notes are as likely to spark a memory of Peter Gabriel or Enya as ignite the moment. The chirping birds of "Find," oddly, bring this mostly background fodder up front and down to earth.
