Album Notes
Khoral's music is a subtle mix of electronica and pop influences - the Velvet Underground-style distorsion of "Neon cities, faster", the bright guitars of later Beatles on "Invisible chords" and the glitchy beats underlying the folk simplicity of "1978, lower".

Production bears resemblance to the electroacoustic sophistication of Blonde Redhead's last works ("Special attraction", "Way to grieve", inspired by Emily Dickinson's poetry), the lo-fi darkness of Stina Nordenstam ("Lotus kitten") and some melodic funk reminiscent of the Talking Heads and Peter Gabriel ("Let it come down", "Life among the spiders", "Crash me like the years", "Animal fraud").

The « Animal Fraud » sound is the result of a constant experiment on textures and words. Music and lyrics evolve from a chaotic process, melodies and verses being written and recomposed over weeks or months to shape the complex structure of tracks like "Roadmaps for the bugs" or "Alien homestead".

Like in Burroughs's work, new meanings emerge from the juxtaposition of layers and ideas. Sometimes there's a theme, most of the time it's a canvas of impressions and imaginary portraits, fragments of thoughts, about time and relationships, something like a buddhist cut-up. The underlying concept is that coherence isn't a virtue of creation - a large part of its beauty proceeds from shadow and mystery.
