Athens based Jar Moff returns with his second PAN LP in 2013. This is a music of upheaval. Continuing with themes established on his previous 'Commercial Mouth' LP, 'Financial Glam' reflects the flux and tension of his home city, a gripping opus of grandiose crescendo and collapse, broken rhythm and disquieting calm. These intricately composed collage works, constructed from hundreds of archived samples, provide a fitting and highly personal soundtrack to austerity in the shadow of empire. The craft hints at a year's worth of meticulous assembly and industry; the album title hints at a biting critique of the circus outside. The combination of Jar Moff's technique, ear and unique perspective on, and proximity to, one of the defining stories of our era makes this release a truly important work. A side 'Financial Glam' and builds with growing fanfare and unease, the malaise occasionally tamed by sublime stabs of synth and rhythm. B side 'Kresentosiagona' (translation: "Crescendo of the Jaw") is characterized by a complex rhythmic treatment of individual orchestral samples. The perpetual escalation of the instruments begin to form a fragile and perilous platform over time, it's fragile movements and majesty ever close to the crash.
