Artist: Louisa John-Krol
Title: Djinn
Format: CD
Label: prikosnovenie (@)
Distributor: Audioglobe
Rated: *****
Australian singer-songwriter Louisa John-Krol is back with a new great album. Louisa John-Krol's music mixes Celtic folk, electronic sounds, new age atmospherics and progressive pop rock. Often she reminds to Loreena McKennitt and Kate Bush but her mix of new age and folk pop evoke the ghost of Danielle Dax, who remember this beauty and talented singer? Louisa John-Krol composes her music using every kind of instruments, mandolin, guitar, ocarina, gong, Tibetan chimes, ylophone, piano-tuba and many more......but her amazing sweet taste over all. Put this record in your buying list!

Artist: TIM WOLFF
Title: Sostenuto
Format: Download Only (MP3 only)
Label: EevoNext (@)
Rated: *****
After several reissues of old label's releases, EevoNext is producing a download only E.P. of an Amsterdam based producer and dj called Tim Wolff. SOSTENUTO (title inspired by the classical music term "adagio sostenuto" which refers to a sustained play) is a three minimal techno track E.P. (with a bonus Terrace remix of "Like clockwork") where Wolff is looking for an ideal mix of danceable mid tempos and night atmospheres. Including some unusual sounds like orchestral strings or trumpet, "Sostenuto", "Branch" and "Like clockwork" sound perfect for the lovers of labels of the likes of Great Stuff.

SAN DIEGO I LOVE YOU! This CD is an homage to psychedelic party life, sounds and electronic carpets are really, the voice follows the rules of NEW VAWE, but the sound atmosphere wanna be huge like Pacific Ocean; great work, easy to listen and easy to love above all. For sure they will play a lot in club this project is made to dance over beach. It's the proof that a dance project has to be SIMPLE AND DEVOTED TO FUN first to be a complex structure of glitch and other electronic strange entities. The DUO behind the name: "She is the composer and producer of AntiQuark music. Sergio, the voice, joined the project in 2006. He formally studied singing at the University of Texas and garnered extensive experience performing with a variety of bands. He also worked as a radio-DJ and sound-engineer before moving to California." From the website of the LABEL, Hungry Eye rec., a small but intelligent USA label devoted to underground ideas and content with a god attitude for booking.

Artist: WEST STATE (@)
Title: SIDEWAYS
Format: CD
Label: Shadowplay (@)
Distributor: SHADOW PLAY
Rated: *****
Another dark flower from RUSSIA, this coming to my desk thanks to SHADOWPLAY and I think that's a good gothic label, full of very interesting artists, another demonstration of the vitality odf the Russian world. West State project is smooth and full of strange fashion not easy to find out in projects that are very well focused in terms of art and ideas involved into. The synths here are showing a form of thought similar to some tracks of Future Sound of London but the arena in which West State move is very different and their result has the Smoothness of FSOL but not the unique energy of the London Group. West Side are walking towards a different state of Synth/Mind and electronics and I like it so much, in some ways they are in the path of 80ies electronic music produced in Europe and specially in French. I appreciate so much the graphic package of the audio cd, another time it's the proof of a project that has legs to move ahead. It's great music to write about the secret sides of our daily world.

Title: CARRY ON LOVIN'
Format: CD
Label: MOMT (@)
Distributor: MOMT
Rated: *****
A compilation in this case is the DNA of a label and MOMT records has carved this one in stone, the artists present are very different each other and some of them very great: GUSTO EXTERMINATION FLUID and AUDIO WAR. The second one is really violent, aggressive and Techno based the influence of forces like Meat Beat Manifesto and Prodigy are evident. The project of MOMT is to do a sort of Warp Records strictly based on industrial-techno-electronic. For sure their formula is ready to be massively used in live concert with three or four artist of their roaster. K-Nitrate is very near to some Front 242 sounds but is more cruel and drum machine addicted. Very interesting is SKINK, in his track he created a simple but effective soundscape of delay. MOMT records chosen its artist with a great attention and I think that it wasn't something easy to do, the sounds and the categories in techno/industrial/electronic are something not easy to recognize and also to follow and to put on light. Artists for a techno label are indeed their idea of music and also business; that's something we gotta consider even in indie music. Well done MOMT, you will get a very good work.
