Behold, Tarcar’s debut on Blackest Ever BlackMince Glace is an interesting beast, combining elements of pop, dub, ambient, psychedelia, new age electronica and to an extent, hip-hop/trip-hop. This came out in the middle of December last year and I feel rather bad about missing its release. Carla dal Forno and Tarquin Manek’s Tarcar reminds me of Hype Williams, in the way that it escapes any genre tag and how they have this heavy smog that covers the production. Mince Glace is like the embodiment of the underbelly of a grimy city you get to witness at some ungodly hour. “Visions of the Night” has a light arpeggiated synth cruise along with the gusts of wind that’s just nothing less than menacing; a song that lives up to its name. Carla’s vocals are the cherry on top of this. There’s more, obviously, but I’ll let you have a listen for yourself. Listen to Mince Glace via the Bandcamp player below and see what you think. Cheers!



The Details

Tarcar, 'angels of shut-in dub dysfunction', deliver a modern-day revenge tragedy in six parts. Their dark analogue sound collages are supplemented with sublime pop moments, that sometimes sound like a morbid version of The Flying Lizards / General Strike.

Price $12.75
