Mlle Caro and Franck Garcia Pain Disappears

  • Words: Janet Tzou
  • Label: Buzzin’ Fly
  • XLR8R Rating: 8/10

Here, veteran Parisian DJ Caroline Laher teams up with producer Franck Garcia to deliver Buzzin’ Fly’s first artist full-length. Laher and Garcia try out a few styles on this album; the tracks that meander into indie-electronic rock territory are neither bad nor particularly memorable (this style is done much better on labels like Morr). Pain Disappear’s tightest pieces are those that reveal Laher’s DJ sensibilities: “No Name” opens with a staccato of noisy, pinprick-like feedback, which gives way to hip-swerving snares and minimal funk, while “Lost” melds a simple ascension of synth rhythms with tribal percussion for a lovely tech-house combination. Watch for invigorating stuff to come from this dynamic production duo.
