LA-based rocker Charles Moothart (formerly known as CFM) is announcing new LP, Black Holes Don't Choke, with the record's first single, "Roll" being shared as part of the day's celebration. "Roll" is the first taste of what Moothart calls "apocalyptic pop", an apt descriptor for the catchy, fuzz-drenched, psychedelia found on the new track.

Black Holes Don't Choke is meant to be a present meditation. It was written, recorded, and mixed entirely by Charles Moothart in his Los Angeles studio, and he plays all of the music heard on the album. The implementation of samplers is a noteworthy development as well as the general inclusion of more electronic elements. Still, the album sounds at home in Moothart's universe of music to date. The album reflects the here and now. It embraces the elements and sounds of the present without glamorizing any tense - past, present, or future. It conveys a feeling of chaotic love and empowerment within a time of existential turmoil - aiming to lift up what positives exist in a world riddled with toxicity and complexity.

The production of the Black Holes Don't Choke is another area of artistic growth. Due to a love for classic hip hop as well as a desire to deepen his creative language, Moothart spent recent years looking in to the world of sampling and sequencing. On top of this, he has been working to hone his engineering and mixing abilities through his own projects, as well as collaborating with peers in different studios. This combination of elements created a new atmosphere for Moothart's song writing to evolve within.

Charles Moothart is a Los Angeles based musician. Black Holes Don't Choke is the first release under his proper name, but he has previously released albums under the moniker CFM (also with In The Red). He has spent the last 13 years touring in Ty Segall's live outfit(s), as well as making records and touring with bands like Fuzz and Goggs. This new album, as well as the subtle name change, marks the start of a new chapter for the multi instrumentalist.
