hearts of darknesses Shit Fan Punx Get Busted (LP, £12.95)label: Deleted Art
Hearts Of Darknesses is the solo project of electronic music producer Frank Musarra, best known to date for his production work with friend and collaborator Gregg Gillis aka Girl Talk. After the massive success of Gillis' 2006 album "Night Ripper", Musarra and Gillis started the project Trey Told 'Em to focus on remixes and production work. Their works have included remixes for Simian Mobile Disco, Tokyo Police Club and Of Montreal. They were also commissioned to do a mash-up mix CD for Thrill Jockey Records' 15th Anniversary, featuring over 50 artists in 70 minutes. When he could find time in between Trey Told 'Em projects, Musarra has been busy in the studio crafting a solo album under the name Hearts Of Darknesses. While the production is as lush and engaging as you might expect from a laptop whiz like Musarra, this solo album is somewhat of a departure from the typical Trey Told 'Em style, as Musarra chose to focus on good old fashioned rock'n'roll songwriting. The result is an album of catchy dance-rock tunes meticulously tweaked and crafted by the self-described "studio nerd" and "Nirvana fanatic".
