Artist: CALAN.DRA (@)
Title: Where Did You Go?
Format: CD
Label: Trisol (@)
Distributor: Audioglobe
Personal project of Dust Of Basement's Birgitta Behr, Calan.dra released her first album early this year. WHERE DID YOU GO? has been a pleasant surprise because it has got a good blend of upbeat rhythms, dark melodies and introspective moments. Nothing revolutionary but the elements are well balanced and this is an important thing for every good "recipe". The CD contains ten original tracks as well as three covers (Einsturzende Neubauten's "Blume", Depeche Mode's "Photographic" and Sisterhood's "Rain From Heaven"). The music kinda darkwave-oriented with heavenly femal vocals: some moments are gothic oriented (you know, the ones with dreaming vocals, acoustic sounds and sad atmospheres) while others (like "Why" or "Empty Star") are more electro oriented. I think that Birgitta gives her best on the second kind of tracks because her voice is in contrast with the distorted guitars and the synth based sounds and this creates interesting moments. Unfortunately the gothic based songs are the 70% of the CD but the whole album is quite interesting anyway.
