Accidental Forever. The title itself captures the alienation that pervades the music. It could be the title of a creepy 1980s sci-fi television program directed by Krzysztof Kieslowski for the BBC, to which this album could easily function as a soundtrack. The album's sound is a unique take on cold wave, new romantic, and '90s Pop music, built from raw, strange textures and straightforward lyrics sung in an ornately-accented English casting shadows of desperation. Listening to it feels at many moments like finding yourself in a new city, lost and unable to ask anyone for directions; at other moments like being trapped in a software demo run on Windows '95, which has been running for the last two decades, growing abandoned and decrepit. Suffused with isolation, it speaks to public spaces at once frictionless and oppressive, urban centers simultaneously hermetically modern and decaying, and to the claustrophobia of daily routine. It is music for life as a maze. But while it can be quite gloomy, it is not pessimistic: the centerpiece of the album is the serene, simply beautiful instrumental Entertain. Originally from Poland, Normal Echo's Dawid Szczesny has released experimental music on labels around the world. Since 2010 he's made his home in Berlin, making him a natural addition to Mansions and Millions's growing roster of expats, transplants, and others linked by the city's far-reaching cosmopolitan gravity. He recorded Accidental Forever almost entirely with just a Korg M1 synthesizer, one of the most popular synthesizers of the '80 and '90s, though somewhat forgotten since. Includes download code.
