CSR03, Jawgoh – ‘Serenity Now, Insanity Later’ EP [Centre Source Records]
Centre Source Records further explore the local talent making up Brisbane’s electronic music scene with CSR03. Having made an appearance on the label’s first release, Jawgoh aka Nick Jorgensen is welcomed back with his debut release, Serenity Now, Insanity Later. Sunshine Coast-born and Brisbane-based, Jorgensen’s diverse taste – which spans the realms of disco, jazz, house, and techno and beyond – is palpable throughout the four-track EP, resulting in a sample-heavy, dusty analogue threaded work.
The EP opener, Cactus Plants Will Spike You is bass-driven and the most club-oriented cut on the record; moving amongst distorted, jarring piano chords, sharp claps and a bluesy vocal sample. Following on, the blissful and summery Ifedora features light and airy keys and muffled brass.
On the flip side, Serenity Now, Insanity Later is a wistful journey; moving steadily through echoing minor piano chords and light percussion, building towards an eerie breakdown. A soothing close is offered through You Must Need A New Sweater, Hey?, bringing about that feeling of holiday-mode leisureliness with its sweet arrangement, reminiscent of a Spanish corrido, and sun-drenched keys.
