VA – Vax! EP [SAMEHEADS004]

DETI VECHNOSTI/ALEXANDER ARPEGGIO/OHLANDY/ROUGE MECANIQUE/AUTOMATTENFALL/DAS KINN/ALESSANDRO ADRIANI - Vax!

Reminiscent of all the slippery vinyl that glitched under so many sweaty wet fingers in a steamy basement before time – a picture that seems highly illegal in our current antiseptic climate of hopefully germ free adolescents. Vax-inate! Give them the needle! It’s time. Six tracks coming from Deti Vechnosti, Alexander Arpeggio & OhLandy, Rouge Mécanique, Automatenfall, Das Kinn and Alessandro Adriani.

OTTO – Stimmungen EP [ORGA01]

The conjectural wedding band OTTO is expanding its organ soundtrack madness. With its third record, it delivers sonic solutions for all sorts of moods, ranging from dark and stormy to smooth and suave. “Rhythmus” stands out with abstract, repetitive vocals in German, ready to land in a club somewhere near you. This project is supported by Orgaton, the society for the promotion of organ music.

Alexander Arpeggio – Streng Geheim EP [BAU007]

Streng Geheim EP is Alexander Arpeggio’s first ever solo 12″. Coming out on Vienna’s admirable Neubau label, the EP is druggy, trippy and strangely alluring, featuring impressive use of psychedelic electronics and exotic, Middle Eastern melodies. Check, for example, the foreboding chords, gently pulsing drum machine beats and distortion-drenched Middle Eastern motifs of “Streng Geheim”, which is also given a weirder and even more hallucinogenic flavour on the acid-flecked Geier Aus Stahl Remix. Bonus cut “Du Hast Kein Gesicht”, an unusual but superb combination of muscular EBM grooves, whistling melodies and glassy-eyed house riffs, is also well worth a listen.
