CASS – Magical Magical ( Home Normal 2015 )



U odnosu na strategiju etikete Home Normal, japanskih entuzijasta kraj reke Nakajuku, Cass (Niklas Rehme-Schlüter)  je proaktivniji i operativniji. Ima čudnih reminiscencija na ploči, a najzanimljivija je Lantern, skoro paralelni Wonderwall, koji umesto nabudženog retro prepisa zvuči kao ohrabrujuće svetlucanje iz boljeg sveta. Dok je, recimo, Atlon Lounge sastanak Mum i Jona Hassela. Iako je autor Nemac, ovu ploču je mogao da snimi i apatrid delom špacirajući kroz Island, delom  kroz Japan.

BENJAMIN FINGER – Pleasurable Lost ( Eilean Records , 2015 )




Nova etiketa za novo izdanje Benjamina Fingera.  Deo igre kojom Finger, zabavljajući sebe, zabavlja i nas. Odavno mislim da su ploče i kasete koje (sa) nama deli zamaskirane oaze optimizma. Na njegovim pločama punim hipnogogičkih reminiscencija na odrastanje i živopisnih medjuigara Erosa i Tanatosa,  ko se udubi može da uhvati pozitivno iščekivanje. Muzički, Finger, supervizor  i manipulator sopstvenog živog tkiva, forsira ono što je njegova prednost u odnosu na jurnjavu za žanrovima i popularnošću. Ne zbog (pr(o)cene drugih, već je zabavnije i (verovatno) ne može drugačije. U muzičkom svetu, Finger koristi prazan prostor, a ako mu ga zatreba još i više. proširuje ga izostavljajući  (očekivane) reči ili čak cele rečenice, Uz organsku salatu field recordings(a) sa uvek na dohvat ruke  gitarom i pianom, što i definiše Fingerov momentum.
I na kraju, ono najvažnije za autora, album je posvećen Witoldu Gombrowiczu i njegovoj knjizi  Ferdurke, mada je i bez poznavanje te knjige ovaj album knjiga ili putovanje za sebe. Izdavač je francuska etiketa Eilean koju void Mathias Von Eecloo, znan I kao Monolyth & Cobalt sa zavidnim rosterom ( Spherulus, Aaron Martin, Bill Seaman, Danny Clay, Twincities….)


Benjamin Finger releases his sixth studio album on Eilean Rec. which is a label based in France. It is run and curated by Mathias Van Eecloo who also produces music as Monolyth & Cobalt. It sounds as if Finger is both entertaining himself and the audience on his latest record called Pleasurably Lost. I tend to think that Finger´s releases is an oasis of optimism. His records are full of hypnotic reminiscences of childhood memories and contains a vivid interplay between Eros and Thanatos. And with a proper effort, one can catch hints of positive deverb. Musically, Finger is the supervisor and manipulator of his own living tissue, often leading you on the right path - which is his advantage contrary to the often banal chasing through genres and popularity. It´s more fun this way and I doubt that he can do it any differently (if he tried). In his own patent musical world, Finger strongly emphasises  empty space, and if he has the chance to go even further, then he often avoids words or full sentences. Natural, with an organic  salad made up of field recordings, guitars and piano, this absolutely defines Finger´s momentum. 
In the end I´ll mention that the album was dedicated to the polish writer Witold Gombrowicz and his book Ferdydurke, although you can easily listen to this album without this knowledge - the album is a journey on its own.

Cat’s Eyes – The Duke Of Burgundy (RAF/Caroline , 2015)



Peter Strickland je svoja vizuelisanja dodatno definisao muzičkim unikatima kao što su Broadcast ( Berberian Sound Studio) ili su njega koristili za dokumentovanje muzičko-scenskih ekscentričnosti (Bjork – Biophilia Live 2014).  Filmovima se klanja uticajima koje ne skriva, pa se tako kroz Studio Berberian obraća ljudima koji su voleli italijanske horore iz sedamdesetih, a najnovijim (The Duke of Burgundy) zahvaljuje Jesúsu Francu koji je (izmedju ostalog) i autor kultnog "Vampyros Lesbos".  Ovo sobom vuče i odredjene muzičke konsekvence i ko se imalo doznaje u te stvari lako može da zamisli zašto je Strickland angazovao Cat’s Eyes za "The Duke Of Burgundy".  Cat’s Eyes ( Faris Badwan, inače čova iz The Horrorsa i prilično osobena Rachel Zeffira ) su još ozbiljnije prikazali sopstvenu naraciju i čak je unapredili kroz zvučnu podršku filmu. Štimung je orkestriran, melanholičan halucinantan pop uz auru lomljive snene retro patetike. I sa dodirima klasike. Preporučio sam prijatelju da ovaj saundtrek sluša izmedju Broadcast, Badalamentija i  najnovijeg Death & Vanilla (To Where The Wild Things Are).
