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.
Rospy is the trance project of Spyros Yioufkas from Greece.
The newest release to surface is the one track plus one remix single Quantum Vacuum Generator which was released on the 16th. The original version is just over nine and a quarter minutes of industrial acid trance deeply influenced by the current Belgian New Beat Scene, making this one of those very occasional reviews of music at the cutting edge of the latest fashion.
The Greek dark-rock creator Θάνος Ανεστόπουλος (Thanos Anestopoulos) through Inner Ear Records releases the posthumous eponymous LP on the 12th.
A ten track album of rolling dark clouds which fill the room with a dour melancholia as a rich baritone and crunchy instrumentation mold around one another and the listener finds themselves completely transfixed by the superlative voice as it seeps hypnotically in to the mind.
An experienced musician, who died last year, so this will be the first and last feature, sadly, with a catalogue dating back to early this decade, though sparse of releases, it is always a delight to be transported in to the world of Θάνος Ανεστόπουλος.
The third of the songs on the LP (which is available on bandcamp) is Θυμάμαι (I Remember).
