Artist: BRILLIG (@)
Title: The Plagiarist
Format: CD EP
Label: Blackrain (@)
Distributor: Audioglobe
Rated: *****
This new E.P. is a sort of sum of the past and the future of the Brillig's sound as the first two tracks of the CD are coming from the next album "Mirror on the wall" which will be released on May and the other two tracks "Nihilist" and "Escher" are picked up from their 2003 album "Pterodactyls". The opening track "Truth or dare (Radio edit)" made me thought about a merge of Suede and Cure where the alternation of male and female vocals is working really well as much as the alternation of acoustic and electric parts. The second track "The plagiarist" instead is a sort of goth version of the Violent Femmes and it is a good acoustic song. The old tracks are more influenced by Clan Of Xymox sound with drum machine and all. If you already own their old stuff be patient and check their new album but if you purchase this E.P. you'll have also the video of an old song titled "Escher" coming from their 2004 E.P. "Finders keepers, losers weepers".
