Dither – Urei

dither

"Urei" is the fifth CD, and third studio album for Dither, a french musician coming from the Noise Museum / Alice in Wonder family. If "Apogee", the only other album from Dither that I know, was pleasant but had left me with the feeling that it could have been better, "Urei" shows a real progress. […]

:SITD: – Coded Message 12

sitd

SITD came as a great surprise to all of us few years ago when they released their debut album Stronghold. A fantastic work to say the least, forced many of us to set high standards for their new second album. More than two years passed and SITD are back with their brand new Cd Coded […]

Ophelia’s Garden – Loveternal

og

Loveternal is Ophelia's Garden's second album. The recordings lasted almost a year [June 1999 till May 2000]. As O.G. have said, "Loveternal is a very carefully selected unity. Different experiences from the past, the present and [why not?] the future, all joined together with the love of eternity and eternal love…" Loveternal is divided in […]

Decoded Feedback – Combustion

decoded feedback

Decoded Feedback was always one of my top favourite bands, though I could never understand why people are not that familiar with them or why clubs do not prefer their songs. Objectively, Decoded Feedback is original, powerful, melodic and aggressive at the same time and to my opinion one of the best bands of the […]

Second Lass – Try To Paint A Fitful Love

SL

This Italian gothic rock band has managed to create a very interesting album. "Try to paint a fitful love", is the title of the album. First of all I would like to point the very nice cover of the album. In my opinion the artwork of an album is very important and it should be […]

Displacer – Moon_Phase

MP

From Toronto, Canada, signed to the French electronic label M-tronic, home to such artists such as Mlada Fronta and Dither, Displacer delivers intelligent, dark melodies, full of rich soundscapes and enchanting electronics. The softer tracks remind me of Boards of Canada but let’s leave it at that, because there is so much else here. Some […]

Foetus – Love

FOETUS

Mr Thirlwell is back with a new, quite painful release. Most industrial purists disagree with his enthronement in their cold, heavy pantheon but most of these guys never heard of  Monte Cazazza. Glad I got that out of my system.Back to the record. Considering  myself an industrial purist and a great fan of his work […]

Dither – Summit

Summit

Dither begins with the dying breath of Tubetech, a fading sub-harmonic pitch which coalesces into a sharp, arresting ping. The crisp, metallic slice of time — of Dither's history — is held, momentarily suspended, and then the programmed rhythms and tonal melodies begin. Welcome to the new iteration of Dither; welcome to Summit.   Summit is […]
