Katapulto – Pralines of Doom

Pralines of Doom is the third release from Poland’s Katapulto and is an intriguing blend of 80’s electro and Ian Curtis vocals with hints of The Mighty Boosh’s Julian Barrett taking his music more seriously but still smiling

Katapulto is the solo music project of Wojtek Rusin from Poland whose deadpan lyrics meet quasi-danceable beats and some interesting melodies

lead track Adventures In Modern Bathrooms (video below) is a great opener that sets the listener up for what’s in store . . . beats, melancholy pop and drama and which explains why Katapulto also makes sound design and music for theatre and installations

listen out for an unusual but worthy version of Marvin Gaye’s Sexual Healing that is far different from the original recording

to quote sickoftheradio.com, “(Katapulto) . . . makes crazy upbeat spastic pop music. The array of sounds blends together so wonderfully, and unlike a lot of electronic music Katapulto steers clear of redundant repetitions. His songs are very colorful with references to early 90’s dance music, 80’s hip hop and tropical cabana sounds.

Katapulto – Pralines of Doom is available to pre-order from onec records http://onec.greedbag.com/buy/pralines-of-doom-0/ and will be on general release from the 6th December 2010
