Charles Moothart Reveals All on New CFM Track ‘Voyeurs’
CFM is the musical moniker of Charles Moothart, a West Coast shredder who rose to fame through his collaborations with Mikal Cronin and Ty Segall. (He’s also a co-founding member of Fuzz, a sludgy trio that also features Segall.) Though most know the 27-year-old Moothart through his work on the sidelines, he’s been blazing his own path as of late as the bandleader of California quartet CFM, which just last year dropped off an LP (Still Life of Citrus and Slime) and EP (Homegrown Paranoia).
Now, Moothart is plotting a new LP: Dichotomy Desaturated, due April 7 via In the Red. It’s a revelatory work that offers a deep dive into the musician’s psyche, as the axeman revealed in a press release. “The whole record is a constant push and pull where I’m at with my life and with music,” he explained, “coming to terms with the fact that all I want to do is push myself, but it becomes scary.”
Indeed, showing your full hand can be just a tad nerve-wracking, but Moothart’s not sweating one bit on “Voyeurs,” the latest taste of the upcoming album. A rollicking bridging of the Stooges, Sabbath and the Kinks, the track finds the band firing on all cylinders with ample mischief, and more than enough riffs to go around. Give it a spin below.
