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).
The Greek alt-folk project Jef Maarawi releases the LP Comfort Food on the 11th.
A ten track album (available on bandcamp) which is full of luscious melodies and tender moments with the contrasts of introspective dour lyric pivoting against the slightly summer of love feel to the music that float wistfully through the room – affords for an LP of intrigue.
The antepenultimate song being the acoustic Dread & Breakfast.
The Greek alt-rock project Jack Heart released the AA side single Voodoo King / 108 on the 1st.
As part of the 10th anniversary monthly A Distant Victory Singles Club release series this year by Inner Ear – Voodoo King (available on bandcamp) has a retrospective filter through which the brooding track permeates the marrow-bone and a serves as a good introduction to a musician I look forward to hearing more form in short order.
