New Canadiana :: Karneef – In Error
From the heterotopia of Benoit Poirier:
This mannered heterotopic R n’ B pop would make Prince and David Byrne groove on an 80/20 carpet. Karneef, a man with a shimmering pedigree (Pat Jordache, Sean Nicholas Savage, Cadence Weapon), reveals himself as a sensible cardigan funketeer with the sensuous fizzle of a first G&T. From the warped euphoria and courteous tam-tams of “Different People” to the moiré turquoise introspection of “Figure It Out”, In Error waves and celebrates a pluridecennial affective dichotomy between the human and the synthetic. This is the party music of an enlightened youth celebrating everyday life (WE FOUND MONEY!) like there was no iPhone to recall the past, only the sweet obsolescence of a hypnagogic encyclopedia spread out in the Indian summer.
