Socos And The Live Project Band – Objects In Mirror Are Closer Than They Appear

09 Jun

Socos2 years after the release of the album “Kafka”, Socos & The Live Project Band return with this new release.

Objects In Mirror Are Closer Than They Appear” is a double release, one CD and one DVD.

The DVD is featuring the experimental movie “Mescaline” directed by Socos himself.

So, since the movie is built on having as soundscape the songs of the disc with the songs, I will move on to the music.

Socos follows the same way of working as he did on “Kafka”.

Well-crafted industrial, progressive and psychedelic music, mixed up in a very interesting way.

Socos And The Live Project BandThis time Greek, French and English lyrics are used and some special guests appear such as the Godfather of Greek rock, Dimitris Poulikakos, doing the vocals on the song “67 Pirotexnimata” (engl. 67 fireworks ελλ. 67 Πυροτεχνήματα) – he’s the man appearing here having a shave – Stylianos Tsiritas playing the clarinet on “Niveus“ and Marios Delaportas playing the viola on the track “Of Time”.

The band did a cover version on the French baroque composer’s Jean-Baptiste Lully composition,  “Marche Pour la Ceremonie de Turcs” as well as one more on “A Ton Etoile” of the French band Noir Desir.

I was lucky enough to watch them performing the album live on stage (supported by a nice band called “Raintear”).

This is one of the albums that push the Greek rock scene over the limits.
