(Photo by Phil Sharp) Erasure have just announced that they have made the decision to move the shows from October 2021 to May 2022 on the advice of the promoters of their upcoming shows in Ireland, Denmark and Germany. The new schedule looks like this. May 2022 11 – Dublin, 3Arena 13 – Frankfurt, Jahrhunderthalle 14 – Cologne, Palladium 16 – Copenhagen, Royal Arena 17 – Hamburg, Barclaycard Arena 19 – Leipzig, Immobilien Arena 20 – Berlin, Velodrom The reason for the move is, of course, the ongoing uncertainty around the Covid-19 situation. If you have already booked tickets for any of the shows then your tickets will remain valid for the new date (the only venue which has changed is Berlin and your tickets for that show will also remain valid for the new venue), and everyone with tickets will be contacted by the ticket agent shortly with all the information they need concerning those changes. For those of you with tickets for shows in the UK or North America, you can stand down, as those shows are unaffected by this decision. For the moment being, check out our recent interview with Vince Clarke.

Out today via the US label Black Pill Red Pill is the newest maxi-single from the Turkish act Elz and the Cult. The EP “Fire Meets Fire/Discipline” goes hand in hand with a video for the track “Fire Meets Fire” shot and directed by Elz and long-time collaborator Antresex. The video is an homage to George Bataille’s writings about erotica and la petite morte and features images of Elz and their ‘monster-under the bed’ played by Istanbul queer icon and drag artist Kiki Cicinash. The single itself holds 2 tracks plus a remix of “Discipline” by Qual. The Istanbul based act mixes dark electronic music with pop, industrial and goth undertones and first entered the spotlight with the 2016 released single “I Did This to Myself”. After their 3rd studio album, 2020’s “Bloodline”, Elz and the Cult released their first ever EP, “Sex Macabre”. Here’s the video for “Fire Meets Fire”.

What happens when you mix a Star Wars composer with hybrid country music, and an English producer plus a banjo player annex Sly Cooper game composer? Then you probably get what the duo GW Childs IV and John Fryer came up with. G.W. Childs IV is one of the founding members of the electro-industrial, synthpop band, Soil and Eclipse. In 1997 they released their debut album, “Necromancy” on COP International Records, followed by “Meridian”, “Archetype”, “Purity”, and “The Mirror”. But more important in this news story of today is that G.W. Childs IV has also worked for LucasArts/LucasFilm, creating games and processing character voices for Star Wars (“Star Wars: Battlefront”, “Star Wars Knight of the Old Republic 2”, and many more). Comes in notorious English producer John Fryer: “I’ve always been interested in making some country music and working on this track with GW was like a dream come true. I hope you love it as much as I do.” The third musician in the ploy is Peter McConnell who added a banjo performance.

Italian multi-instrumentalist Luca Bonandini this year released his fourth production to date. He has been always attracted by every kind of sound, but got intrigued by silence, which is like a mystery that fascinates him. That brought him to the name of the project The Illusion Of Silence. The new album “Gardens In The Dark” is about the absence of connections between human beings and nature. In Luca Bonandini’s opinion nature is going the wrong direction, people thinking too much about economic issues getting unhappy and frustrated. They ignore the language and the rules of nature, its beauty and its gifts are wrapped in the dark of the time we live in. “Gardens In The Dark” has been released by Shadowplay Records and is a great artistic creation faturing elements of Neo-Classic, Neo-Folk and Cinematographic music. This work is one of the sonic jewels I got the opportunity to discover this year. (Courtesy by Inferno Sound Diaries) Q: Can you briefly introduce us to the sound universe of The Illusion Of Silence? How did you get in touch with music and especially the sound you’re dealing with? Luca: It is not easy to answer because for me music is a […]
