Makeup and Vanity Set releases Charles Park II today

October 26, 2010

“Forged with the blood of druid magic.” That’s how Makeup & Vanity Set describes the creation of his latest album, Charles Park II. This album is unabashedly intended for Halloween, just as Charles Park was 2 or 3 years ago (my memory fails me). Because I’m not a professional writer, and I lack the ability to string these thoughts into a coherent paragraph, I’m simply going to list some things that come to mind while listening to Charles Park II.

  • A synthesizer turns into a robot monster, transformer-style, the keys becoming its fangs. It then crashes out of its owner’s room in Tokyo, Japan, killing everyone and turning it into a vast wasteland.
  • Tom Selleck
  • MacGyver

Basically, this record sounds a lot like the music during the chase/attack scenes of any 80’s futuristic b-movie horror flick. This what the soundtrack to Tron might’ve sounded like if it were re-imagined as a horror film. Buy it, then throw it in a boombox and carry it around on your shoulder blasting as you trick or treat this weekend. You will automatically be 10x cooler and you will get laid.

    Reminds me a bit of the Goblin work done on original Dawn of the Dead. Great stuff.
