Marek x Marchof - Funeral Musik For You And Me [Zoharum - 2015]

Funeral Musik For You And Me offers up a collection of mainly stripped-back & minimal sonic sketchers that blend together elements of electronica & ambience with dips into slurred industrial, locked 'n'  honking jazz, & sparse electro-goth music.  Marek Marchoff is most know to me from his work with avant Neo Folk project 23 Threads, but seemingly hes involved with a few other projects such as  Different State, Kalinovsky & Marchoff, The Vein, and a few solo projects.

The album takes in seven tracks, and these have a runtime  of four & eleven minutes. These move from the pulsing n slightly tone shifting synth , meets churning n minimal electro starkness of the opening track Ezoterascopick "(40.696095N 73.905029W)". Through to chopping lo-fi industrial beats, mumbled vocals, and wondering goth bass line of "40.69.572-73.90342". Onto the taut & chopping 80s film chase panicked synth vibe of 40.699511N 73.911166W. Through to the sour n unwell electronic & locked jazz honk  meets wave field recordings of   "40.6937N 73.9833W". Its fair to say that through-out the album many tracks  here do feel somewhat underdeveloped, and jam-like; but there is some effective atmospherics at play here from time to time.

So in summing up if you enjoy 70s/80s synth based (mainly) instrumental music with a often sparse feel, and sometimes avant-grade edge you might find something to enjoy here- its just on the whole as an album this feels a little inconsistent & half drawn in places. This certainly isnt as good as  Marchoffs recent work with 23 Threads, but it has its moments.
