Snaps*Crackles*Pops is a refreshing take on the idea of pop music by highly acclaimed Australian electronic/ambient musician Pimmon. The elements and original vision of what people have come to love in Pimmon’s music — as well as obvious rhythms, melodies and song structures — are at the core of an otherwise experimental framework. Overall the tracks reflect an emotional rollercoaster ride from exhilaration to frustration, melancholy and anger. It’s very much a personal journey, using an idiosyncratic definition of the term “pop music” — joyously melodic and catchy, but also chaotic. Similar to Eno’s ambient work, Fennesz’s Endless Summer or Mike Ink’s Gas albums, Snaps*Crackles*Pops unites the freedom of early prog rock with the likes of Flying Saucer Attack, AMM, Amon Düül, Christian Marclay and Sonic Boom’s E.A.R. Pimmon manipulates old vinyl records, tapes found at thrift shops, and his young children letting loose on a Korg MS20 synthesizer. He mixes up things with a variety of unconventional sound sources, and gets so lost in file manipulation and mixing that when the final product is complete, there is little recollection as to how it all came together. Talk about a trademark of quality.
