Kid Carpet, Songs From Repo Chick Album Review


Making music that has, according to his website, formerly been described as 'kiddy disco punk', Kid Carpet (aka Ed Patrick) is a multi-instrumentalist a little different from the norm; his chosen sonic weapons are largely samplers, Casio keyboards and children's musical toys.

Kid Carpet's fourth album, entitled Songs From Repo Chick, opens with a 'Big Atomic Bomb', a repetitive loop of a music box sample of Tchaikovsky's theme from Swan Lake amidst a blend of electronic beats and crackling samples, followed by 'Chuck It Away', a brief, one minute forty second blast of electro pop-punk constructed of simple layers of samples. Again with layers of simple electronic sounds, 'On A Road' sounds honest lyrics akin to those of The Streets that are kind of sung spoken but all the same ingrain themselves into your head. There's also an element of urban poetic folk to the Kid Carpet blend, with the English-ness of Nizlopi but drenched in electronics and less of the folk idealism. Lyrically at least, this notion is further reiterated in 'Herd Of Cows' which sounds the repeated lyric 'there's a herd of cows running down the street in the city on a Saturday night' with a kind of rough punk feeling amongst Kid Carpet's trademark layers of simple electronic riffs. This punk feeling is then contrasted by 'The Golfers', a thirty-five second, slower moving chordal piece with iffy sounding tuning as a result of Kid Carpet's Fisher Price instrument collection.
