Electric Floor – Bluedive (Vipchoyo Sound Factory – 6 March 2017)

 Electric Floor Signs to Viphchoyo Sound Factory, Announces New Single

 electric-floor-fader-cover

New wave synth-gaze outfit Electric Floor have announced they will release their forthcoming ‘Fader’ EP in March via the Vipchoyo Sound Factory label. The Italian trio now presents ‘Bluedive’, the first single from this album, which exhibits clear underpinnings from Psychedelic Furs, Echo & The Bunnymen and Modern English and will appeal to fans of Interpol, Kasabian and The Wombats.

“Bluedive is like a surge – it was born during a bad period for us. Initially it was only messy ideas, but we gradually gave it form. The lyrics are suspended between romance and sadness, anger and exhortation,” explains Emanuele Chiarelli. “Just like the other songs, our lyrics in this one are very emotional and tidal.”

This Cosenza-based trio is comprised of Emanuele Chiarelli (vocals/ guitar), Simone Costantino De Luca (programming/ keys), and Fabio Cosentino (bass). Formed in 2009, the band’s concept is based on emotive feelings.
‘Fader’ will be their third album, following up the self-produced albums ‘300’ and ‘Falsità reali’ and singles ‘Your Blue’ and ‘My Bloody G’. On this latest release, the band is geared more towards an electronic sound.
The latest few singles have brought them increased press and radio coverage in numerous countries, but ‘Fader’ will likely see this attention explode due to the virtually melting pot of synthpop, shoegaze, chillwave and electrogaze presented here. “This selection of songs features tracks closely linked to each other with a common denominator in that they dive into our conscience,” explains Emanuele Chiarelli.
Simone Costantino De Luca, who handles programming and keys in Electric Floor, comments: “Everything starts from sound suggestion. Our biggest strength is setting the mood and our lyrics give it meaning. This EP is the result of a dialogue amongst ourselves. Every song on the forthcoming EP was written during the same period and we think this is a dead romantic album, after all.”

The ‘Fader’ EP will be available on CD via Vipchoyo Sound Factory, as well as on digital download and streaming platforms.

LYRICS

Take your bright blue hearth tonight
And please ask me what I need
I need to walk away
I need to walk away
Now I have no reason
No reason to get back
If you want to run, Run a mile
Take the dream
That you hiding tonight
If you want to run, Run a mile
Too much is not enough
Oh now I can’t be sure of enything
Let me see if it’s so cruel
If I feel so blind
If I feel so blind
You’re gonna tell me when
The daylight will rise
If you want to run, Run a mile
Take the dream
That you’re hiding tonight
If you want to run, Run a mile
Too much is not enough
Keep up with Electric Floor

Vanity Noire (After Dusk Festival) – Leipzig-Germany 18.11.2016

By Fondas SumerSon

When I started getting involved with guitar oriented German Goth Rock back in the day, it was 5 or 6 bands that turned me into a huge fan of the genre. Age Of Heaven was definitely one of them!
Having in mind that Age Of Heaven do not play live that often, I quickly decided that their special 25 years anniversary gig, in their hometown Leipzig, was not to be missed. Especially since their special guests would be the legendary goth rock heroes of the underground Still Patient? and Aeon Sable, one of the best new bands of the Goth scene.

15578633_1333434463381262_8643004492383620293_n

Well, let’s see things in more detail… Although I try to attend gigs and festivals across Europe, I never had the chance to visit Leipzig until now. So this gig was a fine opportunity to explore this beautiful and historic city, with the precious help and guidance of my good friend Ingo from The Escape. I can certainly admit that Leipzig is one of the most beautiful German cities!

The concert would take place at Moritzbastei – a brilliant venue of 150 to 200 people capacity – with a circle-like stone-scared roof. It reminded me of a catacomb, thus being an ideal location to host a real goth gig! We arrived around 19:30, did some merch-shopping and had a little chat with good old German friends before Still Patient? hit the stage…

Still Patient? 

Still Patient?

Around 20:00 o’clock lights went out, thick smoke filled the stage and a female voice introduced Still Patient? by saying “Ladies and Gentlemen, now Still Patient? are going to play some proper Goth Rock for you”. Needless to say this sent chills down my spine…That was exactly the reason why I was there after all!

One by one the guys came on stage with Andy being the last one. Without wasting any time, they began delivering their killer Goth tunes! They chose “Chameleon” as their opening track, an old school cult anthem that was released 20 years ago. The song had a great effect on the crowd which started to show its appreciation instantly!

They played a 50 min set based on their over-of-2-decades history, including classic goth dynamites like “Agoraphobia”, “God & Satan”, “Anavryn”, “Mascara Osiris” or “The Sun”, along with more recent tunes like “Seconds of Fame”, “Impact”, “All is Well” and of course their latest brilliant video clip “Swallowed”, as well as a very interesting cover on Schwefel‘s classic “Metropolis”.

All 4 guys were in great mood on stage and seemed to enjoy themselves very much! Steve Pogue and Bec Kes – the killer guitar duo – created a strong and solid sound by mixing modern elements with classic old school goth riffs! Guido‘s bass lines made the band’s sound heavier and more groovy, while Andy’s voice and “goth” attitude on stage, is always one of the highlights! He is quite imposing without the need to be over-reactive. A great front man indeed. This was my second SP? gig and I have to admit that these guys are getting better and better as time is goes by!

Their setlist:

Intro
Chameleon
Seconds of Fame
God & Satan
Swallowed
Impact
Agoraphobia
Metropolis (Schwefel cover)
All is Well
Anavryn
—————–
The Sun
Mascara Osiris

 

Aeon Sable

Aeon Sable

After a small break, it was Aeon Sable’s turn to spread their “wicked” tunes around the place. While Din, Jo and Quoth were plugging in their instruments, Nino (with a hood covering his head) was moving across the stage, throwing some kind of dust as part of the “ritual” that was about to begin… a “ritual” that started with the mystical “Aequinoctium”. I honestly couldn’t think of any better way.
I have written about Aeon Sable a couple of times in the past, but I’m going to say this once again. I consider them the best band from the new era of “dark” music. They are an absolutely versatile band that combines so many music styles in a unique way. And if you add Nino (vocals) -whom I consider one of the best “performers” of the scene- to the equation, you get an amazing band that will blow you away! Α amalgam of “dark-art” that captures the audience with its dance floor groovy goth songs as well as with its mystical occult themed anthems. This band transcends the boundaries of traditional goth rock.

Since it was a festival, they had a limited time of a 50 min show, so they chose to play more tunes from their latest album (Elysion, Garden of Light, White Snow), which I consider one of the best releases of 2016. That worked out really well for me because this was the first time I had the chance to listen to the new songs, although this was my 4th Aeon Sable gig.

They also played classics like “Dancefloor Satellite”, “Algorythm of None” or “Visions” that were really appreciated by the crowd, but the highlight of their set (according to my opinion) was “Exodus”, a song taken from their debut album which they had only played once in the past! Cracking tune! The guys put up a great show with Din and Jo working wonders on the guitars, Sebbl rocking the audience with his rhythmic bass lines and of course with Nino’s unique performance on and off stage. Of course I shouldn’t forget to give credit to Frank for his great light-show… Outstanding work!!

Their setlist:

Aequinoctium
Elysion
Garden of Light
Dancefloor Satellite
Algorythm of None
Visions
Exodus
White Snow
——————
Quaalude Tango

Age Of Heraven

Age Of Heaven

Lights went off for the last time and roses-covered microphone-stands appeared before us! Age Of Heaven, the headliners of the evening, were about to conquer the stage.

When the smoke cleared out, I saw Yvonne reciting the lyrics of “The Secret” (intro to their “Garden of Love” album) and Heidi accompanying her on the keyboards! What a feeling! They created a genuine Gothic atmosphere that took me back many years… And when the guys, one by one, filled the stage and started playing the title track of the same album, I thought that I was back in the 90’s!! Ju was dressed like the way he used to dress back in 1996 (“Garden of Love” era). He was singing every word with great passion and expressiveness. He easily mesmerized the audience into following him through a romantic goth rock journey! Torsten and Christian on the guitars were the perfect companions for that goth revival! The goth super team was completed by the one and only Tommy with his distinct and rhythmic bass lines and Heidi whose keyboard-playing added a medieval-ethereal touch to the traditional goth-rock sound of the band!
Since Age of Heaven haven’t released a new album in 20 years, they had plenty of new, unreleased songs to play. I am thrilled to say that their new songs are nothing less than true masterpieces. These songs that could have easily been released 20 years ago, but at the same time they sound fresh and up to date! “To the Clouds”, “Tonight”, “Love is Just a Lie” or “Strangers” offer the same feeling that their “old” songs did! No electronics, no trendy elements, just pure romantic old school goth rock!

They played for an hour and a half, performing around 10 brand new songs without leaving out of the set classic anthems from both their albums. Tunes like “The Providence”, “Armageddon”, “Garden of Love”, “Red Roses”, “Broke the Chain”, “In the Mirror” or “It Comes the Night” (personal favorite from their “Garden of Love” album) were received enthusiastically by a crowd which obviously appreciated old-school goth rock!

One of the highlights of their performance was definitely the amazing cover version on The Mission‘s classic “Garden of Delight”! Many bands have covered this track, but none like Age Of Heaven! Actually they had planed to play an acoustic version of it on their acoustic special set which would take place the next day at darkflower, but after my request Ju decided to play the electric version of it on their Friday gig too… Thanks my friend!

Their setlist:

Ther Secret
The Garden of Love
Broke the Chain
Machinery
Consolation (new song)
This is the Country (new song)
In the Mirror
Your Hidden Mind (new song)
Tonight (new song)
To the Clouds (new song)
It Comes the Night
Armageddon (extended)
Strangers (new song)
Love is Just a Lie (new song)
She was Living for (new song)
Lethal Poison (new song)
Red Roses
Garden of Delight (The Mission cover)
The Providence (extended)
Over the Seas

Concluding I would like to congratulate Age Of Heaven for such a memorable anniversary gig and for choosing 2 great acts as their special guests!
I can’t think of a better way to celebrate your first 25 years! Thank you for being loyal to Goth Rock all these years, without changing you values! We are eagerly waiting for a new release. Until the next time…. Long Live Goth Rock!

SpaceFest! 2016 – 2-3 December 2016

SpaceFest! 2016 Preview. Anton Newcombe (The Brian Jonestown Massacre) & Emil Nikolaisen (Serena Maneesh) to lead Pure Phase Ensemble 6

spacefest-2016-poster-hi-res

SpaceFest! is gearing up for a new season. The sixth edition of this festival will take place on December 2-3. Gdansk will again become the intergalactic capital of Poland, presenting psychedelic music at its best with shoegaze, Krautrock and space-rock plus cosmic energy, intergalactic cats, forest goblins, psyched visuals, pagan disco and more.

Organized by Nasiono Records, this event is traditionally preceded by a week-long workshop for Pure Phase Ensemble, an ephemeral group created especially for the festival. While most festival events will take place at Zak Club, these musicians will rehearse at the Laznia 2 Centre for Contemporary Art in the city’s Nowy Port district, seeking inspiration amidst its post-industrial atmosphere.

anton-newcombeThis year, Pure Phase Ensemble will be fronted by a true legend: Anton Newcombe of The Brian Jonestown Massacre, espousing one rule – that there are no rules when making music. We can basically expect anything. Anton is teaming up with Emil Nikolaisen (producer, multi-instrumentalist and frontman of Serena Maneesh) for this project.

Anton Newcombe says, “It is my hope I can have a quick chat with everyone involved and get on the same page about how important silence can be. From there we can make everyone deaf… but I’m not interested in throwing everything at something then trying to remove everything in its own way. I would rather build wonderful beds of ideas, rythm, melody and work on Polish and English vocals when we can… I plan to switch between my keys and my guitars using one in open tunings if I can, and one standard… and get weirder… be heavy. and dreamy. but not pointless.”

Other PPE members are from the following Polish alternative bands: Polpo Motel (Olga Myslowska), Jesien (Maciej Karminski), Oslo Kill City (Jakub Zwirello), Judy’s Funeral (Marcin Lewandowski) and Aiodine (Kacper Graczyk). The collective will also involve Nasiono Records’ very own Karol Schwarz (7faz, KSAS), who has been responsible for its musical cohesion from the very outset. Their output will be presented live on December 3, and will be recorded and released on CD in 2017.

The makeup of Pure Phase Ensemble is constantly changing, guided by the artistic vision of a new leader each year. Through workshop improvisation, the musicians produce a set of unique songs, Past participants include Mark Gardener (Ride), Laetitia Sadier (Stereolab), Ray Dickaty (ex Spiritualized), Steve Hewitt (ex Placebo), Jaime Harding (Marion), Chris Olley (Six By Seven), and Hugo Race (The Bad Seeds, The True Spirit).

This year’s concert delights include performances by Camera (Germany), Be Forest (Italy), The Third Sound (Iceland-Germany), DIV i DED (Czech Republic), MDME SPKR (Britain), and Polish artists Rosa VertovWild BooksLonker See, and The Fruitcakes.

Be Forest, a trio from the Italian city of Pesaro and leading fixture in the modern shoegaze world, bring their hallmark sound to the festival. More shoegaze is on the menu from Czech shoegaze and dreampop outfit DIV I DED, building on the achievements of such groups as Ecstasy of Saint Theresa, Slowdive, Jesus & Mary Chain and My Bloody Valentine.

German trio Camera, who experiment with sound, composition, form and expression, are justifiably compared with 70s Krautrock icons like Neu! and La

Düsseldorf, their music like a motor running at full throttle, where an explosion could occur any second.

The new psych scene is represented by The Third Sound, a band that has been dubbed “linchpins of the psychedelic underground”. Fronted by Icelandic singer Hakon Aðalsteinsson, formerly of Singapore Sling, this project was founded in Rome and has since relocated to Berlin.

London duo MDME SPKR transmit pure, raw energy on stage, while Lau Betti’s low, in-your-face voice emanates sincerity and freshness. Their sweaty, loud sound evokes L7’s grunge or the darkness of Black Sabbath. Polish band Wild Books also combine the raw sound of psychedelic punk with dreamy, fuzzy 1990s-style guitars, presenting material from their upcoming second album titled “2”.

The sound from Poland’s Lonker See oscillates around jazz, space rock and psych. It’s full of space, based on long forms, with ample room for improvisation. Through its annual competition for young bands, two other collectives will perform at SpaceFest! 2016 – Warsaw-based Rosa Vertov, an all-female band playing dirty, disturbing shoegaze, and The Fruitcakes, whose music is inspired by the late 60s San Francisco psych scene, the Canterbury scene, and the psychedelic aspects of the contemporary Australian scene.

SpaceFest! also presents DJ sets from UK-based DJ Ola’s Kool Kitchen and DJ Pomponette, who will deliver spaced out and psychedelic dance music sets, and Snowid – a mystical forest creature and the festival’s informal patron, presenting a wild mix of disco, psytrance, electro and dubstep.

SpaceFest! is organised by the Nasiono Association in cooperation with the Laznia Centre for Contemporary Art and Zak Club. The festival is co-financed by the City of Gdansk. Tickets are available from Soundrive Tickets and Zak Club(Grunwaldzka 195/197, Gdansk)

Day tickets are PLN 35 (preorder) and PLN 45 (on the door) / Weekend tickets are PLN 65 (preorder only). For more information on this unique space expedition, visit www.spacefest.pl

A Tree Grows – Wau Wau Water (Rufftone Records 25 November 2016)

A Tree Grows Delivers Sublime Jazz-Laced Fusion With New ‘Wau Wau Water’ single.

ATG_WWW01

In advance of announcing their debut album through Rufftone Records, Brooklyn-based A Tree Grows present ‘Wau Wau Water, the first single from their self-titled debut EP. Involving some of the most talented musicians on the New York scene, they create a unique stew with jazz at its core, blended with afrobeat, rock and experimental sounds. 
Each composition on this coming LP surrounds a difference concept, describing a distinct state in the evolution of life on earth. The images are snapshots, extending from the beginning of life to the emergence of emotions, to aspects of modern human life. The cycle closes with possibilities for future development: self perpetuating intelligence. The composition Wau Wau Water is based on the following concept: “Enzymes are forming in a prehistoric ocean – evolving into bacteria. A stew of life is brewing, the cycle starts and intensifies in this patch of fertile Wau Wau Water.”
“Defining and discussing these concepts during the rehearsal and recording process created a sense of purpose among the musicians and a deeper engagement with the compositions. This has transformed our creative process,” explains Emanuel Ruffler.
The accompanying video was created by acclaimed videographer Hideki Shiota, who has received the Best Cinematography Award at the Asian American International Film Festival.
A Tree Grows creates instrumental jazz-core music that tastefully crosses stylistic barriers. This unique collaboration involves two brothers – Rashaan Carter and Russell Carter – and German-born electronic musician Emanuel Ruffler. Together, they create sonic textures, over which Tivon Penicott and Duane Eubanks stretch a layer of raw, emotional jazz lines. Not afraid to defy expectations of style, instrumentation and expression, the unique style of each member of A Tree Grows makes for a potent sonic concoction that is refreshing, insightful, and deliciously exciting.
At the top of today’s young saxophone world, Tivon Pennicott brings fantastic rhythm, tasteful melodic lines and the deeply important groove. A two-time Grammy winner and runner-up in the prestigious Thelonius Monk Competition, he is also a prominent part of jazz-soul singer Gregory Porter‘s band. Arguably one of the decade’s most celebrated and genre-crossing artists, in the last few years, Gregory Porter performances have featured Tivon Pennicott on countless live and TV appearances across the globe. Hailing fron Georgia, Tivon began playing with guitar legend Kenny Burrell while still in college, performing at many of the world’s greatest venues alongside the likes of Stevie Wonder and Wynton Marsalis. Since moving to New York in 2009, he has collaborated with numerous artists, appeared on Esperanza Spalding‘s crossover success “Radio Music Society”, and toured with master drummer Al Foster, best known for his long-term collaboration with Miles Davis.
Emanuel Ruffler, a New York resident of more than 20 years, also comes with a colorful musical pedigree. After taking grand prize in the Thelonious Monk Competition, he has achieved songwriting credit on Me’shell Ndegocello’s ‘Aquarium’ and also collaborated with world-famous designer Emanuel Ungaro, which ultimately led to Ruffler soundtracking an ad for an Ungaro-produced perfume.
Rashaan and Russell Carter‘s love of music fostered by their saxophonist father and mother, a radio programmer. The bass ultimately became the voice for Rashaan’s musical expression with Russell on drums. They cut their teeth on the local Washington, D.C. scene with artists such as as Gary Thomas and after Rashaan moved to New York City to attend the New School University, he quickly began working with many faculty members, including percussionist and composer Joe Chambers. Rashaan met future bandmate Emanuel Ruffler at that time.
Trumpeter Duane Eubanks has performed everywhere from the Hollywood Bowl to Carnegie Hall to the Kennedy Center, in addition to Europe and Japan.  He is a member of Dave Holland’s two time Grammy Award winning big band and the late Mulgrew Miller‘s band, Wingspan. Having played with dozens of renowned figures in the jazz world, he has crossed over into other genres, recording and touring with The Temptations, Alicia Keys, Talib Kweli, Mos Def, Wu Tang Clan, Freedom Williams, Kirk Franklin, and Defunkt.
“It’s inspiring to play in the company of such amazing work. The studio is this incubator for creative energy and it’s nice to absorb that. The space plays an important role in a concert and one that houses and spawns creative work is always welcome.” says bassist Rashaan Carter.
Rufftone Records releases A Tree Grows ‘Wau Wau Water’ on November 4 via Bandcamp and the usual online retailers.
THE PLAYERS:
Emanuel Ruffler – keyboards
Tivon Pennicott – saxophone
Rashaan Carter – bass
Russell Carter – drums
Duane Eubanks – trumpet

New Breed – Break the Silence (2016)

new breed

(by Fondas SumerSon)

It was the May of 2004 when the mighty Elusive visited Athens for the very first time. I remember hanging out with the guys a few hours before their gig and chatting. At some point their guitarist (Kristian) gave me a cd from a band called New Breed and told me: “ Buddy this is my personal project apart from Elusive. I think you gonna like it.” The next day when I listened to “pleasure & pain”, I knew that New Breed was destined to be one of my favourite Scandinavian goth rock bands!

As time went by, Elusive became more famous and Kristian put New Breed to sleep for a while. After the tragic death of Jan (Elusive), he reformed New Breed and now, 12 years after their debut, the band releases its second full length album, a proper goth rock diamond!

In “Break the Silence” we can find 8 tracks of high class guitar-oriented goth rock with a perfect, crystal-clear production. This is an album of great maturity. The songs bear a feeling of intimacy, paired with the usual Scandinavian melancholy. But do not be mistaken that this is a hypnotic slow-tempo record, as the album also features many uplifting goth rockin’ dynamites. Great guitar riffs and bass lines, along with excellent drums and above all Kristian’s distinctive, rough – yet very melodic -vocals! Atmospheric discreet keyboards and even some beautiful female vocals (on “fragile”) complete the puzzle of this great release, which comes in a nice slim digipack.

In this album a goth fan can find pretty much everything: from Mission-like songs (City of Sin) to mid-tempo melodic goth masterpieces (Outside, Fragile), and from re-worked, upgraded versions of old favourites (Neurotica, Memories) to emotional dynamites with unique melodies (Ghost).

A special mention should be made to “Rain”, the closing track of the album, which is my personal favourite. It reminded me of the dark-desert Elusive tunes that made me love this band so much! We are talking about a sublime song!!

This is what I call an outstanding come back. An album not to be missed!

Avarice In Audio – Anthracite Nights EP (Alfa Matrix 2016)

a0551117383_10

Taken from Avarice In Audio’s successful second album “Apollo & Dionysus”,here comes the final single from this album: “Anthracite Nights”. Avarice In Audio have brought the thunder with this song, and shown to never rest on their laurels. Always working on new content, and always delivering diverse but thought-provoking material each and every time.

Augmented with remixes by label mates Venal Flesh, Junksista and Entrzelle, alongside the Anthracite Remix contest winners Alien:Nation, Antibody and Restriction 9.

The sonic palette varies from harsh aggro tech to more cheerful synth pop, to brooding atmosphere and club bangers, “Anthracite Nights” has a solid pedigree behind it and serves as a fitting send off to the “Apollo & Dionysus” era. The artwork, commissioned by premier artist Tomoki Hayasaka/Sheerheart Design shows a new depth of visual creativity, closing off the orb design used for every prior AIA E.P release. With a new dawn comes new visual and sonic aesthetic.

Finally combined with an original exclusive track “The Temptation & Expulsion”, an orchestral closer for the era of the first two Avarice In Audio albums, the triumvirate are ready to move forward and record their third album, while working on live shows.
