When a musician from Greece releases a record called »Financial Glam«, there’s only one important thing to do: listen. After last years’ »Commercial Mouth«, Jar Moff’s second release for PAN can easily be interpreted as a harsh criticism of neoliberalism. »Financial Glam« gives us an idea of what is waiting for us, what will befall us, like a skyscraper that grows further and further into the sky til the statics can’t carry the weight anymore. It’s like the Tower of Babel. Similar to its predecessor, »Financial Glam« consists of two parts which are both about 25 minutes long. This time, the Greek musician has used around 220 samples, has lined them up, intertwined them, had them collide and interlace. The title track in particular makes the elements clash like crazy, while the following one, »Kresentosiagona«, is much more musical. It’s a pun deriving from »crescendo«,the successive increase of volume and »siagona«, which means jaw – hence the track does both, getting louder and louder and pretty much breaking your jaw. Jar Moff used to release his sample-based Plunderphonics on Matthewdavid’s Leaving Records, and it still takes quite some will power and nerves to get through his more recent compositions – but then again, trying to understand the global implications and results of the financial crisis is no piece of cake, either.
