Pascal Babare - Ugly Town

Pascal Babare - Ugly Town
At around five years old, Pascal sent a letter to Brian Wilson, thanking him for Pet Sounds (he wrote back when I was in his early teens, with a signed photo of him and his poodle in front of a wall of Pet Sounds LPs). Pascal had cancer when he was six years old, an experience which has inspired a lot of the music he makes.

At some point, Pascal inherited a drumkit from a feminist power punk trio, and started teaching himself to play. When he was 13 he tried to learn the guitar, but failed, then tried to learn the trumpet, but failed, then tried to learn the piano, but failed. So he moved to the computer, and started making very chilled out instrumental hip hop, directly influenced by a heavy pot addiction and a lot of cafe chillout compilations. Thanks to the trojan virus, no one will ever hear this music. At around 15, inspired by the spontaneous jam sessions Pascal had with the cool older dudes living in his mum’s share house, he started recording some guitar noodling on the inbuilt microphone on a laptop. These noodlings would later become Thunderclap Spring, Pascal's first solo LP.

About this track...

“Ugly Town” unfolds slowly and curiously, where acoustic and processed textures run together like water through a mill. Though on first listens it sounds like a folk song, structurally it’s more like a condensed NEU! jam, with its pulsing bass anchoring cycles of guitars and sparkling percussion.
