New video Moby & The Void Pacific Choir based on Max Fleischer’s 1930’s animation

Taking inspiration from Max Fleischer’s iconic animation of the 1930’s, Moby & The Void Pacific Choir (in collaboration with Steve Cutts) have released the music video for “Are You Lost in the World Like Me?”. “Are You Lost In the World Like Me” has been taken from the debut album “These Systems Are Failing” by Moby & the Void Pacific Choir. The video – which you can watch right below – is what Moby calls “a lighthearted look at alienation, modern dystopian living, and the collapse of our species”. The video was directed and animated by illustrator Steve Cutts who says: “For me the video is about our increasing dependence on technology and about human interaction today, or a certain lack of it. It focuses on the way tech is changing us – how we have become desensitized.” Moby adds: “A few years ago I saw Steve Cutts’ “Man” video and was amazed and blown away. I did some internet sleuthing and found his e-mail address and humbly asked him to make a video for me. And, lucky me, he agreed. The video he made for “Are You Lost in the World Like Me?” is without question one of the best […]

Mnemonic return with 8th album ‘mo:ral’, back to their roots

Coming out in early December, but already available right here, is Mnemonic’s 8th album “mo:ral”. “mo:ral” comes with much more clearly structured sounds than the previous release “result no. 7” and clearly has the band returning to its roots. We have been following this band since their very first official release “Identifikationsstörung” in 2001 on Alfa Matrix and they have since been offering a constant quality not stepping into the easily made MOR error of many of their colleagues. In short,  this is band which keeps on amazing us. You can still get their backcatalogue, partially released via Alfa Matrix, and holding the releases “Identifikationstörung”, “Konstruktive Vergangenheitsbewältigung”, “Nahtot” right here online.

From the vaults: ‘The Sound Of Progress’ DVD feat. Coil, Current 93, Foetus, Test Dept.

Here’s a release, which although being released already this August, hasn’t gotten enough attention to our taste. Released via Cold Spring and available right here for ordering, this DVD is the official release of the infamous 1988 film “The Sound Of Progress”, directed by Alexander Oey. The film has been completely remastered / authored from the original master film stock for the occasion. The documentary itself shows the mindset of the some of the most original and influential artists of the experimental scene. An unprecedented insight into the workings, the methods and the ideas that made these names legendary. Filmed in Hamburg (at Neu Konserwatiw/Israelhalle), Amsterdam (at Paradiso and De Olyphant) and London (Sam Therapy) and featuring Coil, Current 93, Foetus, Test Dept.. It aired for the first time on the Dutch TV Videoline program in 1988 and combines interview and performance footage of Coil, Current 93, Foetus and Test Dept. All in all 40 minutes of material. Note that Test Dept. were filmed in a deserted harbour area of Amsterdam where empty buildings were used for concerts and performances. One of the buildings was called De Olyphant, named after the name of the street, Levantkade (now a renovated neighbourhood). They […]

Covenant – The Blinding Dark

“The Blinding Dark” does not contain as many hits as classics like “Northern Light” or “United States Of Mind”, and it is surely less pleasant than Covenant’s most striking earworms “Dead Stars” and “Happy Man”. Still, “The Blinding Dark” is exciting not only because of its telling title, but also since it shows a remarkable development in style, something that Covenant decidedly wanted with this record – and not least thanks to the subject matter they address. Of course, dancefloors will still shake during “Sound Mirrors”, “Immortal” or “I Close My Eyes”, yet the albums focuses rather suppressed tracks of subtle darkness such as the Kraftwerk- and Jarré-inspired “Dies Irae” and the Lee Hazelwood (!) cover “Rider On A Wild Horse”, a 1977 country anthem that has been turned into a sombre, sluggish electro requiem with heavy acoustic drums.
