LP version. This is the second album on Karaoke Kalk for French musician, poet, blogger and director, Toog. He started his musical career in 1999 when he met the widely-venerated Scottish singer/songwriter Momus. They went on an extensive tour together, playing almost 150 shows. In 2004, Toog released his album Lou Etendue on Karaoke Kalk together with Italian actress and director Asia Argento. Goto is a collection of musical ideas, references, nostalgia and gags -- background noise with coarse exaggerations, where madness and graceful levity go hand-in-hand. Whistles and explicit statements try a balancing act between humor and serious contemplation. A musical diary, reflecting memorable encounters, experiences and oddities. Toog is helped on some tracks by David Fenech and Fashion Flesh, who the artist admired for his work with Matmos, Cornelius and Momus. The artist's wife Florence Manlik, who designed the cover, can also be heard on some songs. As Toog himself explains, "Goto is narrative, meditative. It's travel with an electronic donkey, where the fern tree line at the top of the mountains is nothing but a miniature. Slow is how my heart beats: 56 bpm." Includes a download voucher for the entire album, plus one extra track.
