Kraków Loves Adana were introduced last year with the track American Boy from the album, which is available on bandcamp.
Songs After The Blue is a mesmerising approaching half and hour, eight track release and is well worth adding to the collection – my pick of the release is the fragile and aptly named closer – Naked World – with its ghostly piano led melancholia that seeps in to the marrow-bone.
The German dark-electro project Neon Insect releases the LP Glitches on the 16th of February.
A slight step away from the normal fare of Neon Insect, which tends to be video game dystopian soundtrack, Glitches is an album, (available on bandcamp) created as a standalone release and overall more gothic darkness than intense compression in temperament.
The second of the eight songs L.L.t.Q. features the Danish electronic body music creator Leæther Strip with a deeply anchored bass surging through the room.
The German dark-electro duo Kraków Loves Adana will be releasing the LP Songs After The Blue on the 6th of April 2018.

The first track to surface from the album, which is itself was released available as a single on bandcamp on the 24th – American Boy – is a mesmeric blending of electronica, instrumentation and vocal which was inspired as a result of a feeling of frustration… frustration with a world of societal disconnect and a sense of powerlessness by not being able to instantly correct those inequities.
Rather than turning those emotions in to a howling lament, American Boy, is a brooding darkness which, as the hypnotic composition unfurls, slowly pervades the listeners mind.
The German dark-electro duo Yeah But No release their début eponymous LP on the 10th of November.
Yeah But No
One is minded of graphene on hitting play as their music has a sense of immense tensile strength whilst simultaneously being of lithe flexibility.
The sixth of the ten tracks on the album (available on bandcamp) Sand exemplifies these physical properties, which they transpose to sound, as the dreamy vocal stretches across the room within an undulating pulsing bass which rumbles the sub-woofer from its anchoring.
The Germany based dark-electro outfit Das Flüff regularly feature on the various sites.

From the ten track LP Flower With Knife, available on their website, Nothing is one of their more uplifting tracks – which of course needs to be taken in context as you will not be leaving in bouncing humour – though will be seeking a dark cellar in which to play the song again.
