With his polyglot background and jet hopping lifestyle, Gilles Snowcat is no stranger to the ways of the world. Snowcat's disc "Mokomoko Collection" is an introduction to his well-traveled perspective, offering a diverse array of entertaining pop tunes ranging from reggae to psychedelic tinged R and B to punk and even progressive rock. Backed by a top notch band assembled with connections acquired from decades as a musician, Gilles' earthy baritone conveys rock swagger (Kaisou), humor and wonder (I Could Live In Airplane), raucous absurdity (My Best Friend Is My Own Ghost), and romantic tenderness and admiration (Mokomoko), among others.
The extended instrumental core of the album that starts with the midde of "I Could Live In An Airplane" and follows with "Rite of The Circling Food" ventures into a travelog describing the luxuries of travel and ending with a brilliantly composed art rock /psychedelic/avante garde paean to one of those nights at an Asian restaurant when, after a couple glasses of sake or plum wine, the vast panoply of culinary delights presented on the table rotating in front of you has a hypnotic effect. That this is conveyed wordlessly is a credit to Snowcat's musical skills, which show up in the album's tunes and his instrumental contributions as well. The album's finale, "Mokomoko" sung in Japanese, reveals the romantic soul guiding Snowcat through his adventures, beneath the comic exterior. (Though I speak not a word of Japanese, this comes across very clearly). Snowcat's theatrical flair for inhabiting the personalities of fictional characters portrayed in his songs, along with the support of his ace musical team makes "MokoMoko Collection" an highly recommended, at times brilliant foray into 21st century Euro pop.
