about

• Katapulto’s unhinged maximalism, nailed here to some dancefloor discipline, has resulted in an album of immense delight. Previously pigeonholed as “an explosion in a marimba factory”, imagine a deliriously inventive pinball machine jammed inside a jukebox featuring Yello, Blancmange, Jimi Tenor and Daft Punk. ‘Big Iron’ sees Wojtek Rusin narrating a cowboy shoot-out to rubbery techno, as if Morricone had discovered glow sticks. The filtered disco of ‘Fake French Rap’ and ‘Power Failure’ (boasting impressively demented guest vocals from Amanda Palma) suggests a neon-lit nightclub run by Klaus Nomi. There’s a brilliantly original reading of Marvin Gaye’s ‘Sexual Healing’ morphed into sleekly unsettling day-glo house music. It’s immaculately produced and genuinely special.

• The music is full of energy, with nice up-tempo beats, great song-structure, unexpected breaks and nice cut-ups (...) Pralines of Doom is for now the sunniest moment in these dark days.
Vital Weekly no 758

• Pralines of Doom is the third release from Poland’s Katapulto and is an intriguing blend of 80′s electro and Ian Curtis vocals with hints of The Mighty Boosh’s Julian Barrett taking his music more seriously but still smiling.

• Pralines of Doom robi pozytywne wrażenie. Z pewnością miło zaskakuje – więc, choćby z ciekawości, chce się do tego albumu wrócić. Przesłuchać jeszcze raz. A potem jeszcze raz. I w końcu stwierdzamy, że to całkiem niezły kawałek electro punka.
