Dark Voice Of Angelique – Contra – Audio

The Russian dystopian-drone project Dark Voice Of Angelique was introduced earlier in the year.

Dark Voice Of Angelique - Contra

Most recently released was the eleven track LP Null And Void (available on bandcamp) and is of equally harrowing soundscape.

The combinations of voice, percussive animate and inanimate objects robed in oppressive electronica cloak the room in a menacing darkness.

The fourth song is the less than three minutes of Contra.

Set for release on the 22nd is a fourteen tack compilation LP celebrating musicians from Tatarstan – Пляж Локомотив (Locomotive Beach) – which will be available as a cassette through Издательство Сияние (Shining Records) imminently.

The tenth of the tracks, which was written whilst Рушан Хәяли was travelling in the USA, Кан басымы (Blood Pressure) is based on the poetry of Ренат харис (Renat Haris) and reflects on national and international conflict.

The third of the six tracks Tell Me is a dreamy spire of trap that bounces inside itself with spectral voices drifting hazily through the room as the irregular electro rhythms settle in to the synapses leaving the audience with sense of ears popping.

Dark Voice Of Angelique – New Order – Audio

The dystopian-drone project Dark Voice Of Angelique from Russia released the three track single Evol Love earlier in the month.

Those of longer stay will spot by the word ‘single’ it doesn’t necessarily mean all over in a blink of an eye and when combined with ‘drone’ probably means an extended duration and you would be correct in thought – the three tracks on Evol Love (available on bandcamp) last for about twenty eight minutes between themselves.

Each a dark orchestration in their own existence, yet through the building of the release, the individual songs become more introspectively self-imploding and of longer gradation, necessarily making the closer New Order – the post-apocalyptic age and almost thirteen minute closer – my selection of the single as it encapsulates the precarious relationship of the 1% and the 99% which will inevitably implode upon themselves for the very fractious nature of their dichotomous existence.

There is a certain joy to communicating with musicians around the globe as things can be learnt – Маршрут построен is the common phrase on Russian Satnav devices when the route for a journey has been calculated, but rather than learning about Russian SatNav systems you probably opened this post to learn more about the music…

Маршрут построен is an approximately twenty four minutes eight track LP (available via Pomogite Community on bandcamp for either the digital version or the ten track limited run cassette version) – that flows through a psychedelic journey of compositions that hold a fascinating grip on the listener. A haunting soft vocal sweeps through tracks of fuzzy psychotropic keyboard, slippery percussion and whirling guitar.

My selection from the release is the sixth Регенерация (Regeneration), though to not dwell in the full release is to do yourself a disservice.
