Earlier this month they released the LP Exit Strategies. A twelve track album of ever changing shapes which is ideally suited to a full strobe-lit dancefloor and can be expected to be heard widely through clubs in the coming months.
The closing track is the darkly-cloaked Drug Dilling.
HERR ALT – an electrowave project from the Netherlands released the début single Rush yesterday.
Combining electronic loops, guitar and bleeding vocal allows HER ALT to deliver music which is simultaneously nu-disco whilst equally retrospective of ’80s synth-rock.
More typically to be found in stage performance where the visual and electronic loops modulated by stage played guitar allow the material a more extemporised and organic feel, Rush, nonetheless, (available on bandcamp) makes a welcome introduction for those of us not able to get to see live performance.
The Greek electrowave duo Gioumourtzina release the AA side single Fayum / Mouthless tomorrow.
Fayum (available on bandcamp) finds Gioumourtzina with a more regular template from which they work than previous music of featured, whilst equally turning up the wick.
The combinations of bass and electronics come tumbling out of the speakers like ants scurrying back and forth with an unrelenting flow of activity and similarly akin to an army of ants, rather than the seemingly frenetic bustling, as the various textures come in to earshot, so the elements takes on a purposeful and organised shape, much like as can be seen when taking a birds eye overview of a colony on the march.
The Greece based electrowave project of Dimitris Papadatos – KU – released the LP Ganja on the 13th.
After a four year gap since the LP Feathers the return of KU, with Ganja, is marked as a collaborative release with guest musicians appearing on all eight tracks on the album (both albums are available on bandcamp).
The penultimate number Oolong features King Elephant (Percussion / Drums), KU (Vocals / Synthesizer) and Prins Obi (Moog synthesizer / Keyboards / Organ).
