Jimmy Polioudis, from Thessaloniki (Greece) who creates electro-club under the name Vagina Lips releases the LP Generation Y on the 12th.
A couple of tracks have surfaced from the album, which is available on bandcamp, both slightly different in texturing.
Boy June, which is the second of the eight tracks, is woven around an Ennio Morricone guitar through which a filtration of electronica and soft brush vocal gives the listener a sultry massage of the earlobes.
The opening track This Is A Good Life, which is a more pressing flesh tease for the dance-floor, as longer stay readers will know – if it works in a dimly lit basement it is going to appeal – and will not be surprised I have chosen to feature in a composition that would have sat well in Heaven – Charing Cross in the early ’80s.
A mesmerising approximately thirty six minutes, ten track album (available on bandcamp), in to which the audience can feel their inner being sublimate with each becoming indistinguishable from the other.
The hypnotically entrancing combinations of various instruments, particularly the dream-state theremin and ethereal vocal drift though the room casting their bewitching spell in to which the listener pleasurably succumbs.
The fourth track Τα Μαλλιά Της (Her Hair) being my pick of the release.
The first track to surface from the album, Παπαρούνα (Poppy), was itself released as a standalone single at the tail end of last month.
The swirling thermals of electronica, theremin and vocals of Παπαρούνα drift through the room as though an albatross gliding effortlessly far out over the ocean transporting the listener, too, into a higher stratosphere and away from the hubbub of the day.

With a prolific output dating back to 2015, sometimes alone, other times in collaboration the latest release, the single Jump Cut / The Broadcast which came out on the 20th (available on bandcamp) I am pleased to say finally catches up with contact originally made back in January of last year.
UnknownArtist, unlike the project name suggests is far from unknown more locally and is regularly found on the bigger stages in Greece along with occasional appearances more widely across continental Europe.
Jump Cut / The Broadcast as it says on the tin is a single, lasting approximately five and a third minutes, of two distinct halves with the opening section being a gently undulating flow of subtle waveforms and the closing chapter being of choppier waters.
