Flavor of the Week #32

Clock DVA
( ;D --> Clock DVA are an industrial music, post-punk and EBM group from Sheffield, England. The group was formed in 1978 by Adolphus "Adi" Newton and Steven "Judd" Turner. Along with contemporaries Heaven 17, Clock DVA's name was inspired by the Russian-influenced Nadsat of Anthony Burgess' A Clockwork Orange. Dva is the Russian word for "two". Newton had previously worked with members of Cabaret Voltaire in a collective called The Studs and with Ian Craig Marsh and Martyn Ware in a band called The Future.)
( ;D --> Out on June 14th via Anterior is the brand new Clock DVA album "Post-Sign". "Post-Sign" is marks the first CD release by the band since their latest single "Eternity" (Contempo Records, 1993). The CD also includes links to download the videos for "Phase IV", "Sigma 7" and "Project Paperclip". All Anterior editions are in DVD digipak format with embossed Anterior detail and follow a corporative design that will build throughout each Anterior release. The DVD-sized digipak comes with a 28 pages full colour Booklet. This album is a collection of material recorded after the release of the album "Sign" on the Italian Label Contempo. Produced and composed by Adi Newton throughout 1994/5 in Florence and Milan during a transitional period in the chronology of DVA. Due to circumstantial events these recordings remained as primary bases for later development, intended as an instrumental companion album to "Sign", similar in concept to the instrumental album "Digital Soundtracks".)

Moderat (modeselektor and Apparat)
( ;D --> A bit darker than modeselektor or even apparat's stuff, reminds you of burial at times. Great stuff!. Moderat is an electronic music project that originated in Berlin, Germany. It started as a collaboration between Sascha Ring, also known as Apparat, and Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary, also known as Modeselektor. Their first full length album was released seven years after their first EP, due to some creative disagreements and different opinions on how they should work.)

( ;D --> After having played in several underground bands in Luxembourg,singer-songwriter Jerome Reuter almost unintentionally founded ROME in December 2005. The music and lyrical world of ROME is genuinely unique and constantly brilliant. Blending excellent songwriting craftsmanship, unusual arrangements and fine poetry into one monstruous and intimate musical output that combines chanson, dark ambient, apocalyptic folk, pop, acoustic rock, martial industrial, cold wave – all rolled into one impressive avantgarde package.)
Hate Us and see if we mind
( ;D --> Jerome Reuter certainly does not give a toss about anyone's expectations. While some are still trying to get a handle on last year's soul-baring ‘Hell Money’ and its stylistic twist, Reuter now releases a monumental industrial/folk EP, on which the old industrial influences are not only reincorporated into ROME's musical landscape, but are taken quite a step further. ’The Colony’, an almost 40-minute-long industrial tour-de-force divided into two separate tracks, is the main course here: a barrage of textures, bleak industrial loops, straight-forward noise and eerie dark ambient soundscapes with a distinctive ROMEan feel are mixed into one soothing cocktail.)
Hell Money

Soft Metal
( ;D --> Soft Metals is a multi-disciplinary electronic duo from Portland, Oregon now residing in Los Angeles, California. Its members Ian Hicks and Patricia Hall were brought together through a common love of 1970s and 80s synthesizer music and began writing and recording songs together in the spring of 2009. Inspiration came to them by way of experimental electronic sounds, film soundtracks, early industrial music, minimal synth, house, techno, synth pop, krautrock, psychedelic rock, and shoegaze. Ian and Patricia share songwriting duties and compose the music together before writing lyrics and adding vocals. Their songs are built from moody, improvised sessions together using exclusively electronic instruments. The meaning of the raw music they make is explored and interpreted afterwards with lyrical themes ranging from life experience, films, literature, history, science, love, conflict, and death. Soft Metals prefer to express themselves freely rather than adhere to a particular genre. This freedom gives them a diverse sound somewhere between dance music, austere synthetic pop, and experimental electronic composition.)

Soft Metalls

( ;D --> Lindstrøm is the moniker of Hans-Peter Lindstrøm. waerve. Raised on country and western music in the outskirts of the Norwegian oil town Stavanger, Lindstrom now lives in Oslo where he is making contemporary disco and running his Feedelity label. Claiming that "Hans-Peter Lindstrom is closing in on Henrik Ibsen and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as being Norway's poster boy of choice" (quoting an article on Piccadilly Records website) is obviously quite an overstatement, but nonetheless his original approach to dance music is currently causing quite a stir.)
