Exclusive Side-Line premiere of new Black Needle Noise video ‘I Am God’ feat. Marselle Hodges

(Photo’s by Brian Hodges) “I Am God” is the title of the newest Black Needle Noise (project by John Fryer) video which features Marselle Hodges on vocals. The track breathes Black Needle Noise during every second: a nice pumping rhythm, cutting guitars, and vocals that – as usually is the case with this fine project – remind of the best 4AD era bands. Here is the video (directed by Marselle Hodges) and below we asked a both Marselle Hodges and John Fryer how the track came to life. Marselle Hodges: ““I am God” is inspired by one of the craziest years I’ve experienced, full of high highs and the lowest of lows. I felt as if I was God’s plaything. The lyric, “I can make things different or blow it all away,” pretty much describes the tumult I was feeling in response to these seemingly capricious events. But then I tried to put myself in God’s place—wanting to be worshipped and believed in despite it all, Or perhaps because of it all. Isn’t that what we ALL WANT? Just a bit?” John Fryer: “Brain, Marselle’s husband had just done a remix for me and I went to check out his […]

Cubanate is back with ‘Kolossus’ EP : the first new release since 1998 + video for ‘Missing Persons’

The industrial techno-rock duo Cubanate have announced the release of their first new music in over two decades in the form of an EP entitled “Kolossus”. It follows their “Brutalism” retrospective collection in 2017 and a brief return to live action for the first time since the late 1990’s to promote it. The new EP (available here on MCD) contains five new songs plus remixes of the title track by Rhys Fulber (Front Line Assembly, Delerium, Conjure One) and DROWND. Out on 7th June, it will be previewed at a co-headlining London date with PIG on 1st, plus an appearance at the Wave Gotik Treffen festival in Leipzig, Germany. Orders are available here, but be fast! Working with an ocean inbetween Marc Heal and guitarist Phil Barry had started thinking about writing new material after the positive reaction to their initial comeback shows, but as they live on separate continents these days (Heal is currently based in San Francisco while Barry is in Cambridgeshire) it wasn’t all that easy. Marc Heal: “I set up a vocal booth in Palo Alto and sketched out the ideas. Phil took them forwards in Cambridge and added guitar. Once I heard that I added […]

Knight$ – Dollars & Cents (CD Album – Cargo Records)

Genre/Influences: Electro-pop, Italo-disco. Background/Info: James Knights (Scarlet Soho, Boytronic) is back on track unleashing the debut full length of his electro-pop/Italo-disco sonic brainchild Knight$. The album comes after the previously released singles “What’s Your Poison?” and “Alligator” Content: “Dollard & Cents” moves on there where the singles stopped. The album takes off with the first single “What’s Your Poison?”, which reveals the 80s inspiration of this artist. But the songs are also inspired by Italo-disco and Hi-NRG. “Gellato” is the ultimate experience in the genre (and the newest single). James Knights doesn’t take himself serious; the album being pure fun and driven by dance vibes. It brings me back to the golden years of Hi-NRG music and bands such as Divine and Trans-X might be seen as sources of inspiration. Among the tracklist you also will re-discover the second single-track “Alligator” and a song together with Holger Wobker (Boytronic). This is old-styled electronics that will clearly appeal for 80s lovers. + + + : This album made me happy! It’s great nostalgia, getting us back to early electronic music and pure kitsch! The songs are well-crafted and the global sound production is ultra-professional. The newest single “Galato” is a master piece; […]

‘Click Interview’ with Jean-Marc Lederman (Experience): ‘It’s A Great Asset To Be Able To Work In Diverse Areas As I Rarely Get Bored’

Jean-Marc Lederman is an artist who didn’t really need any further introduction. He belongs to the (Belgian) pioneers of electronic music and can look back at an impressive discography. He this year released a very special work under the moniker ‘Jean-Marc Lederman Experience’. The album “13 Ghost Stories” released on Dependent Records is an original concept featuring an impressive list of guest singers. The music has something pretty cinematic-like, but still revealing danceable passages and elements of pop. I’d a chat with the ‘leatherman’ and also asked Louise Fraser and Christer Hermodsson about their experience. (Picture credits by Michel Clair / Interview courtesy by Inferno Sound Diaries) Q: Your newest album “13 Ghost Stories” is definitely one of the most surprising ones you’ve accomplished and I even dare to affirm your ‘opus magnum’, but do you know how many albums you’ve released? Jean-Marc: I think I’ve released about 20 albums of my own compositions and bands if you count Kid Montana (1 mini LP, 1 album), The Weathermen (8 albums + a couple of compilations), 1 album with Ether (DJ Moens from La Muerte + Luc Dufourmont), 1 with Jules & Jim (Julianne Regan from All About Eve), 1 ambient […]
