Flavor of the Week #51

Linea Aspera
( ;D --> Linea Aspera is the London duo of Ryan Ambridge (Synths/Programming) and Alison Lewis (Vocals/Synths). They began the project in November 2011, technically drawing inspiration from electronic music from the early 1980s. Within the duo, Alison writes and performs all vocal elements, while Ryan is responsible for the writing and performing of the electronics, as well as recording and mixing of the final recordings. For their debut album they utilized small, simple analog synthesizer set up: Roland SH-09, Roland Juno 6, Vermona DRM MKiii, Korg Poly 800 and Analogue Solutions Semblance. Linea Aspera’s sound includes clear influences from early electronic body music, classic synth-pop and, in some instances, industrial and noise. Lyrically the band incorporates the sciences of osteology, neuroscience, and anthropology weaving a new medical language around themes of desire, despair and renewal. Linea Aspera serve up an icebox of dark doom riding on Alison’s powerful vocals with a soft but sharp touch.)

Worms of the Earth
( ;D --> Worms Of The Earth; Discordant, pounding rhythmic noise with tribal undertones, atmosphere-rich dark ambient pieces, and complex and contorted IDM, ‘Anagami‘ effectively demonstrates a fresh approach to the genres and the impressive range of this dynamic artist.)

Dead Fe†us
( ;D --> electronic experimental future beats ambient future Tallahassee.)
Death Club

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
( ;D --> Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds are an Australian alternative rock band, formed in London, United Kingdom in 1983 by frontman Nick Cave, multi-instrumentalist Mick Harvey and guitarist Blixa Bargeld. The band has included international personnel throughout its career and currently includes Cave, violinist and multi-instrumentalist Warren Ellis, bassist Martyn P. Casey, keyboardist Conway Savage, and percussionists Thomas Wydler (Switzerland) and Jim Sclavunos (United States). The band was founded after the demise of Cave and Harvey's former group, The Birthday Party. Deviating from the noise rock roots of their contemporaries, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds have a distinctive take on alternative rock that has been influenced by various genres, including punk rock, gothic rock, no wave and blues. Their early material—From Her to Eternity (1984), The Firstborn Is Dead (1985), Your Funeral... My Trial (1986) and Tender Prey (1988)—had a primarily post-punk sound. As the band progressed, they began to incorporate more refined singer-songwriter elements. Their latest release, Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!! (2008), also experimented with garage rock, inspired by their side project Grinderman. They are best known for "Where the Wild Roses Grow", a collaborative single with Australian pop singer Kylie Minogue from their ninth studio album, Murder Ballads (1996). The song was an international commercial and critical success, giving them exposure in pop charts. The band also has a large cult following, due to their extensive back catalogue of fourteen studio albums and frequent international touring.)

Current Value
( ;D --> Tim E. aka Current Value has been going strong and pushing limits within the drum n bass community for a decade now. The early Position Chrome material was phenominal with arguably some of the most insanely technical programming of its time...perhaps too technical to gain a footing with more dancefloor-minded DJs, which led to his slower trickle of releases on various smaller labels after Chrome moved towards pushing simple dancefloor tunes. His work has moved away from the haunted spacestation soundtracks to a more visceral style of dancefloor smashers, but has lost none of the extreme technical work that is his signature. )
