      The Rorschach Garden
      "42 Times Around The Sun"

      Label: Bazooka Joe (2010)
      The sixth full-length album in as many years from The Rorschach Garden, and it really is a musical stroll through the styles and contents TRG have explored so far, with a strong emphasis on progress and refinement. What once started with a very 'retro' sound has acquired a lot of modern aspects sonically. Additionally, Philipp Münch invited some well-known friends to join him on vocals.
      "42 Times..." starts with the uptempo "Automatic", something TRG haven't done in a while. Back in the classic TRG vein with the more familiar melodies are "Broken" and "Unusual Romance", the latter being a heart-felt declaration of love by the charging cable to its connected mobile (!), and yes, it does remind somehow of the B52's.
      "Some Reasons to Call This Time the Hate-ies" is not only a clever reference to the Morrisey quote, not only a punch in the face of the narrow-minded nostalgist, but also a wonderful party track. Dirk Ivens delivers unmistakable backing vocals on "Living in a Cage" while Geneviéve Pasquier does so on the anti-paparazzi track "How to Become Invisible". "(In Search) of the Amber Room" is a Detroit-tinged electro smash.
      Include a very upbeat remix by Memmaker.
