The Moment KLKTV : Be A Bridge [BRQ141]

The Moment KLKTV consists of Alejandro Fournier and Michael Rittner and can look back on a very international history: everything started with their joint stint as part of an artist collective in Guadalajara (Mexico), moves on to the first album produced in Malaga and has now arrived at the second joint album, which goes back to a joint visit to Berlin in 2017 and has since evolved across genres and borders. Indeed, Be A Bridge sounds at times like a nocturnal excursion through the neon-lit ruins of 1980s West Berlin, arm in arm with Gabi Delgado, Thomas Fehlmann and Human League’s Philipp Oakey. The wonderful wave pop of tracks like ‘Kill The Beast’, ‘Human League’ or ‘A Waking Miracle’, which is carried by the abysmal vocals of Alejandro, magnificently underlines these kind of evocations. But the album is much more than just a revel in the past and moves skillfully between very different genres involving wave, house and pop. The songs take inspiration from several collaborations, for example with the singers Maria Tammer, Sofia Lorena and Mavi Solano, and the guitar parts played by Ede Mueller, that further expand the already multifaceted approach of the album. With ‘Be A Bridge’, Moment KLKTV has succeeded in creating a very coherent album, which convinces with a very mature and well-balanced crossover sound that could win over a completely new crowd of listener.”

Various Artists : Post-Punk (Genesis) [Side-Line Magazine]

“Dear supporter,
After much demand from fans and bands, we decided to compile a Post-Punk compilation, called Post-Punk (Genesis), uniting Post-Punk artists from allover the world.
We were honestly quite surprised by the amount of submissions we received, 1564 in total. 44 bands were then invited to be part of the compilation itself. You’ll get an eclectic collection of all of the colors you can find inside the Post-Punk scene, from pure New Wave to contemporary mixes of Post Punk and electronics. There will be something for everyone!
The tracks underwent careful post mastering & sound adjustment by Erlend Eilertsen (Lights A.M, Essence Of Mind) and this for a maximum audio pleasure.
Post-Punk (Genesis) is available here for free or as a pay-what-you-want download release. All proceedings will again go to the various charities we support.”

Infecticide : Finger Bueno [D​!​HR​-​45]

“For its 45th release, Da ! Heard It Records cultivates a taste for brawls.
A bewildered small girl, discovering for the first time the taste of shit. Does the sleeve’s illustration drawn by Nils Bertho announce that the worst is yet to come?
In the disturbing time that is life, in this era, in which each selfishly seeks the shortest way to the fulfilment of their impulses, it becomes increasingly normal to get the jitters, which are sometimes full of hate…
When sad clowns take on lews looks, lost in ramblings, leading lunacy, Infecticide reminds us that there is still time to put a finger where it triggers vomiting with Finger Bueno.
It’s no longer time for kisses, the trio plays rock-paper-scissors and unsheathes the rocks. Thrown against all that is sinister, the lyrics of this new album hit with humor, supported by basses thick as cinder blocks, where guitar frictions fuses in all directions.
Straightforward and obsessional texts, an ultra-polished production focused on efficiency: the first vinyl release by Da ! Heard It has the allure of a very compact disc.
In 8 solid tracks, martial and martian rhythms invite the public to defy the laws of gravity to go elsewhere, far away from this cul-de-shitsac world.”

Pk Jazz Collective : Safe From Harm [Netlabel Day 2017]

“О музыке надо не говорить, музыку стоит слышать. Так и с новым творением Pk Jazz Collective. Safe From Harm, названный по названию одного из хитов Massive Attack, включает несколько кавер-вариаций на гремевшие лет двадцать назад Happy Mondays, и уже отмеченных Massive Attack. Но его прелесть не в этом, а в лирике. Где нет собственных текстов и используются стихи поэтов середины 20-го века, промышлявших на ниве подростковых размышлений о жизни. Песня ‘What If?’ в которой лирический герой задает себе все возможные «Что если?» вплоть до «А что если я не выросту?» или «Мои родители разведутся» — достойный пример заимствования чужой лирики. Любовь, подростковые проблемы, ностальгия по детству — основные мотивы альбома. Однако, завершается он отнюдь нетревиально психоделической балладой, обрамляющей русскую народную сказку о хитром коте и доверчивых мышах в прочтении фольклориста Бориса Шергина.
И хотя на обложке увядающий цветок как символ недолговечности всего красивого, на этом месте неплохо бы смотрелся усатый мурлыка, именно такие ассоциации вызывает музыка этой пластинки.”
