CFCF is the stage name for Montreal DJ/producer Mike Silver. He took his moniker from the call sign of the city’s CFCF-TV. As such, his promising debut, 2009’s Continent, resembled a delightful channel surfing between assorted genres. His latest release, Exercises, is a downcast and reflective paean for the ’70s underground. The chamber-piano infused into these eight experiments is sometimes utterly heartrending—those pulsating synthesizers sound like they could pump blood and breathe oxygen. Break glass in case of emergency.
