Mlle Caro and Franck Garcia Pain Disapears

Mlle Caro and Franck Garcia Pain Disapears
Pain Disappears is an album that takes a minimalist approach, using simple synths, tired guitars and monotone vocals, but its outcome will easily appeal to a wide range of listeners. As the first release on Buzzin’ Fly Records, after nearly five years of existence, Mlle Caro and Franck Garcia come together on the album to dabble in a curious combination of subdued house and experimental pop, resulting in a sound that at times, is reminiscent of tame ’90s German techno. Pain Disappears takes the most basic elements of sound to create a patchwork of catchy, often danceable tracks. The exceptions that break away from the seeming swell of pulsing backbeats and subdued synths are "Hold Me” and "Mon Ange,” with both tracks employing sombre strings and wispy keys for a soft, urgent feel. It’s definitely a fun album, but a little tiresome, especially when trying to distinguish how each song ends up sounding suspiciously like the last. (Buzzin' Fly)
