Look Behind You

Fernando Benítez Sounds to me like a jazzier, poppier take on 'Red'-era King Crimson, in bed with the stuff Van Der Graaf Generator did when they reunited in 1975. But this is not lite muzak; emotionally, it's quite melanocholic, a bit like a Spanish band called Manta Ray. Add some Neu! touches, a dash of (krautrockers) Out of Focus or Xhol Caravan, or even new wave and the odd reggae rhythm and you've got one great companion piece to the album modern jazzers The Breathing Effect released last year.

about

C.A.R. is presenting their second album „Look Behind You“. After the field trips into the world of Pop and Electronica covers on their 2017 EP „Interlude“ the band returns to original compositions again. It was recorded and mixed at the Dumbo Studios in Cologne by Jan Philipp Janzen and Phillip Tielsch, also known as members of the Post-Krautrock outfit Von Spar. Yet another band, whose sound is hard to pin down to genre conventions.
On the album you can find all the sonic elements that C.A.R. has adopted in the course of their seven year existence so far. From composed melodies to improvised sounds, from ambient collages to Duesseldorf beats. But all of this comes without conceptual limitations or formal orchestrations, always focused on the natural flow of music.
