02.02.2023 :: Syzygy - Anchor And Adjust (Album - It Records)
Syzygy - Anchor And Adjust (Album - It Records)Genre/Influences: Electro-Pop.
Format: Digital, Vinyl.
Background/Info: Syzygy is a new Australian duo based in Melbourne dealing with Electro-Pop. "Anchor And Adjust" is their debut album. The band has nothing in common with other formations with the same name or with SYZYGYX.
Content: Syzygy invites the listener to join their Electro-Pop universe which is now and then driven by solid, menacing EBM like, bass lines with female vocals on top. The songs are pretty short.
+ + + : I like the contrast between the sweet female vocals and the heavier bass lines. The sound has something sterile reminding me of some 80s productions but also to the magic of Client.
- - - : I regret a few songs aren't more extended. I've never been a huge fan of fade outs which you'll hear now and then.
Conclusion: "Anchor And Adjust" is a honest debut revealing a refreshing electro-Pop sound.
Best songs: "Social Fence", "(I'll Just Be) Unfulfilled", "Soothe".
Rate: 7.

Sticks Over Carrots - Archives 2016-2021 Part 1 (Mini-Album - Tripalium Records)Genre/Influences: Techno-EBM.
Format: Digital, Cassette.
Background/Info: Behind Sticks Over Carrots is hiding Greek producer Alex π. He got involved with multiple projects; founder of Pi Electronics label, co-founder of Modal Analysis. H label, producing music ao. He got the idea of this record during the pandemic and found these tracks in his archives. The second part of the "Archives" will be released by Soil Records.
Content: This is a strong mix between Dark-Techno and EBM; bouncing tracks driven by uplifted beats. You'll notice passages with mysterious chants injecting a sensual touch to the work. There're also real although fragmented vocals on another part.
+ + + : This work sounds like a true symbiosis between music genres which during the past years became more and more connected. The result is an alluring underground production for dark Techno-Body dancefloors. "Red Corners" feat. In Atlas and "Pleba" both are dynamic tracks to get your body into a frenzy.
- - - : The last cut "Space Nannou" is a poorly inspired track compared to the rest of the work and serves as anti-climatic.
Conclusion: This is a brilliant sonic fusion between Techno and EBM which might appeal to fans of both scenes.
Best songs: "Red Corners", "Pleba", "Amphibion", "Martyr".

02.02.2023 :: She Hates Emotions - Happy Pop Music (Album - Out Of Line)
She Hates Emotions - Happy Pop Music (Album - Out Of Line)Genre/Influences: Electro-Pop, Wave-Pop.
Format: Digital, CD.
Background/Info: "Happy Pop Music" was released two years after the debut album "Melancholic Maniac" (2020). This German solo-project driven by Blutengel front man Chris Pohl brings us an album featuring eleven songs plus 3 alternative versions.
Content: She Hates Emotions remain totally devoted and inspired by the 80s Electro/New-Wave music the artist was listening to through his childhood. The songs evoke numerous famous artists like Alphaville, Camouflage, Gary Numan, The Human League and even Michael Cretu. All songs have been sung in English revealing typical 80s effects and arrangements -which are mainly coming through in the drum sections. The songs are full of catchy and melodic parts.
+ + + : Blutengel of course remains Chris Pohl's leading project but we have to recognize all the other projects he has been involved with -think of Terminal Choice, Miss Construction, Tumor... were pretty successful as well. She Hates Emotions sounds like pure fun but with a very precise and judicious 80s emulation. Chris Pohl transposed the New-Wave legacy into an alluring, contemporary, production. The already familiar singles "Space & Time" and "This Ain't Good" both remain excellent tracks featuring great melody lines, superb effects and refined arrangements. But I also have to mention "Meant To Be Alone" which is more reminding me of Gary Numan and "No Time To Waste" which is one of the catchiest cuts.
- - - : Originality is hard to find but who cares when the result is fully enjoyable.
Conclusion: The 80s remain a very inspiring period for genius artists like Chris Pohl.
Best songs: "This Ain't Good", "No Time To Waste", "Space & Time", "Meant To Be Alone", "Ich Will Hier Weg", "She Takes Control".

02.02.2023 :: Industrial Synth Pioneers Chris & Cosey Announce Limited Vinyl Reissues
Industrial Synth Pioneers Chris & Cosey Announce Limited Vinyl ReissuesWhen industrial music pioneers Throbbing Gristle split in 1981, members Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti ventured forth to pioneer their own creative path as Chris & Cosey. Since Carter (electronics) and Cosey Fanni Tutti (electronics, guitar, cornet) released their 1981 debut album Heartbeat, the duo have expanded on the rhythmic ideas of Throbbing Gristle while adding synthesized pop elements to their sound.
They recorded their first four albums under Rough Trade, using electronics, sampling, Cosey's vocals, and cornet playing. In 1983, the duo formed their own imprint, Creative Technology Institute (aka CTI) to release more experimental works and collaborations. Carter and Tutti have gone on to collaborate with a variety of other avant-garde artists, including Monte Cazazza, Coil, Current 93, John Duncan, Erasure, Eurythmics, Boyd Rice, and Robert Wyatt. Carter and Tutti's tracks have been remixed by world-renowned DJs, including Carl Craig, Cosmic Connection, Fred Giannelli, Daniel Miller, μ-Ziq, Vapourspace, and Andrew Weatherall.
Chris & Cosey took some time off during the 90s, re-emerging as Carter Tutti, appearing in concert and collaborating with Current 93. Carter and Tutti also re-engaged with Throbbing Gristle for a few years until Genesis P-Orridge called it quits. Since then the duo have made occasional festival appearances, as well as additional musical alter-egos.
Now, for the first time in decades...and in some cases, ever - electronic music pioneers Chris & Cosey announce a remastered limited edition vinyl series.
The series launches with Elemental 7 on green vinyl, Muzik Fantastique! on pink vinyl, and Feral Vapours of The Silver Ether on yellow vinyl - all out on CTI on 24 March 2023. The colour vinyl pressings are limited, and will include a printed inner sleeve of archival photos.
Available for the first time in 40 years, Elemental 7 is the soundtrack to the film of the same name (on Cabaret Voltaire's Doublevision video imprint) that saw the duo working with John Lacey, who had previously worked with Cosey in COUM Transmissions and introduced Chris Carter to the collective.


1993's Muzik Fantastique! will receive its first-ever vinyl issue in March. The album finds Chris & Cosey in one of their most dynamic and melodic periods with an album that slides towards subtler grooves and textures.


2007's Feral Vapours of the Silver Ether will also be available here for the first time on vinyl; the second release under the Carter Tutti name. On it, the electronic and the acoustic are merged in a seamless, crafted album that is awash with echoes of the sea, the moon, the open road, and flatlands.

02.02.2023 :: Madchester Heroes Inspiral Carpets Announce Complete Singles Compilation
Madchester Heroes Inspiral Carpets Announce Complete Singles CompilationThe Madchester sound hit the mainstream out of the Manchester indie crowd in the late 80s. Sometimes referred to as indie rave, its artists merged indie music with elements of acid house, psychedelia, drug culture, Farfisa organs galore, and 1960s Wall of Sound structures. The term Madchester, coined by Factory Records' Tony Wilson, included the Stone Roses, Happy Mondays, the Charlatans, James, 808 State...and the legendary Inspiral Carpets.
Formed in Oldham in 1980, the band's most successful lineup featured frontman Tom Hingley, late drummer Craig Gill, guitarist Graham Lambert, bassist Martyn Walsh and keyboardist Clint Boon. Inspiral Carpets embraced Doors and Animals-style organs, mixing them with distorted guitar sound of psychedelic rock. Over the past decade, despite member losses and departures, the Inspiral Carpets have persisted and kept the party going.
Now, Inspiral Carpets and Mute Records announce the release of The Complete Singles, a brand new album compiling all of the Manchester band's twenty-four singles to date. The album will be available on double vinyl, and as a 3CD set with an exclusive remix bonus disc, via Mute/BMG on 17 March 2023. This stunning run of remastered singles spans decades, including the hits
"She Comes In The Fall'Joe", "This Is How It Feels", "Two Worlds Collide", "Move", "Saturn 5″, "I Want You" (featuring Mark E Smith) and more recent singles "Spitfire" and "Let You Down".

The CD set comes with a bonus disc of classic and new remixes by Fortran 5, Justin Robinson, Paul Van Dyk, Mike Pickering, and more.
The Complete Singles coincides with the start of a major UK tour, including festivals and performances at Manchester's Albert Hall and London's Shepherds Bush Empire.
The band released a new remix from The Go! Team today of their classic "This Is How It Feels". "This is one of my favourite Inspirals remixes," keyboardist Clint Boon told Brooklyn Vegan. "Relatively faithful to the original but with lashings of all the magical elements we love about The Go! Team. I reckon the spirit of Joe Meek was in the studio when The Go! Team did this remix!"
