Published Elsewhere: Charlie Alex March

Home_HiddenAlongside The High Llamas’ all-things-1960s devotee Sean O’Hagan, Charlie Alex March crafts often precious, orchestral outings on Home/Hidden. Next to its wealth of gurgling weirdness, the organic instruments on March’s instrumental debut album are mic’d so closely that it’s as if he’s positioned in front of the piano in the next room. March folds dense strings over harpsichord runs on Home/Hidden, and fiddles with a host of theremins for hyper-melodic, sci-fi-inspired electro that could be mistaken for camp at times. Sample his work at the label’s site, and read the rest of my review at BLURT.
