Artist: Dust Fear of Lover (@)
Title: Narrow
Format: CD
Label: self-released
Rated: *****
From a band member of Psycho D-Vein we have this masterpiece of indie sound "Dust Fear of Lover". This promo remind me directly to the sound of Jesus & Mary Chain with electronic taste, but not only, My bloody Valentine, Lush and many other bands from the second age of 4ad, in these great melodies of new wave you can find also Joy division (always present) and Velvet Underground (the cd included a cover of Lou Reed). The only bad point for the cover of "Nothing changes" by Death in June, It's time to change!!! the others aare 13 beautiful songs to remind us that the underground is alive an kicking.

Artist: Artesia
Title: Hilvern
Format: CD & Vinyl
Label: Prikosnovenie (@)
Distributor: audioglobe
Rated: *****
Prikosnovénie has started a new series of releases for new talents called"Nové". ARTESIA is a new French female duet, their style is dark atmospheric heavenly voices, you can think to Dark Santuary, Stoa or Arcana like references but sure they show great talent! The musicians look like to sirens, maybe they are, soft keyboard patterns and romantic violin is the background of these heavenly voices, romanticism, melancholy, sadness and forlorn daydreams these are the ingredients for a great album.

Title: Shining Silver Skies
Format: CD
Label: Equilibrium music (@)
Distributor: audioglobe
Rated: *****
Four years after their debut album, the Italian ensemble Ashram realise their second album, "Shining Silver Skies" for the fine label Equilibrium Music.Ashram have conquered a discreet fanbase around their delicate and Neo-Classical music style. The group’s singer has a beautiful crooning voice and sometime remind to Anthony and the Johnston, melodic piano and violin phrases confer some decadent atmospheres and deep emotions . Withthis album Ashram jump on the top list of this kind of music, Folk ballads perfect sound, great musicians. Impossible to lose!!

Artist: GLORIA NUDA (@)
Title: Dictate from beyond
Format: CD
Label: Frost Fundation
Rated: *****
Gloria Nuda is the name of a duo working in the industrial-electro field. They melt theatrical speeches with distorted vocal approach. Sounds are both industrial and a bit epic (such as in the case of "A lonely prophet").The duo formed in 2003 and they finished the album in 2005."Abduction part 2: mutation" is particularly effective as well as "A wish of obnubilation". Its melody is catchy enough to be loved after the first time you listen to it. Synthetic structures are used with piano and deep voice.This is a concept album based on an aliens' domination...

Title: ZX81
Format: CD
Label: Rustblade (@)
Distributor: Masterpiece Distribution
Rated: *****
A quite gloomy travel among spare sounds and strange rhythmic tapestries. This music builds squared mind structures and circular loops, it helps your mind to enter a moody and quiet realm and sometimes it suggests disease and nightmares. However it is somehow much too difficult to listen to this record in a single breath, it is too minimal and flattening. Sounds are surely cinematic enough to please your mind but you must be in the right mood to appreciate the whole work in a single listening. It seem like Autechre meets some Cold Meat Industry atmospheres... For weirdos.
