MONA MUR, extravagant vocalist, composer and sound designer, has gained her reputation in the international avantgarde scene collaborating with artists such as Einsturzende Neubauten, The Stranglers, Yello and the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra. En Esch (formerly of KMFDM, production for Pigface), a legend in his own right, is the mastermind behind the industrial-rock outfit Slick Idiot. Together, the two create an eclectic blend of chanson, indie rock, and avantgarde-darkwave. Their new album features several Berthold Brecht / Kurt Weill classics, as well as guest appearances by FM Einheit of Einsturzende Neubauten and a special remix by Steve Morell. This special North American edition of 120 Tage features three bonus tracks not available on the import edition. It will be released to coincide with IO Interactive’s recently announced Kane & Lynch 2™: Dog Days video game, for which Mona Mur composed the soundtrack and En Esch contributed some special noise layers.

Bjørn Marius Borg, Christian Espeland and Hans-Olof Mattsson more know to the world as the Swedish/Norwegian trio CODE 64 are finally back with their longawaited new album “Trialogue”. After the departure of the old singer Henrik Piehl (shortly after their last album “Departure”) the band has worked harder than ever in the studio with new vocalist/member Bjørn Marius Borg taking Henriks place. And the efforts have for sure payed off. “Trialogue” is a 14 track electronic journey filled with brilliant and strong tracks. Catchy, danceable melodies with Bjørns strong vocals above them for place CODE 64 among the top artists within the electronic scene.
