Marc Nguyen Tan AKA Colder's new musical vehicle is SAVE! and ‘Monsters and Fairies’ is their debut record. On this one he steps aside as vocalist and collaborates with American poet and singer Craig Louis Higgins Jr. Last year Craig contributed his unsettling spoken word to the acclaimed dub-acid trax by Paranoid London (recording under his Mutado Pintado moniker).
The world they have created together, with Craig recording in London and Marc in Spain, exists in a dream, suspended between the two locations. A creeping, creepy Lynchian-world, where acid-dub work-outs combine with stream-of-consciousness monologues to make one of the strangest records this side of Serge Gainsbourg’s reggae albums like ‘Aux Armes et cætera’. The record warps and shimmers as if seen through a heat haze, a confused existential daydream or a dark wave mirage.
