Still Insane After All These Years
(Ultramarine - UM023) LP $22.50
Belgian duo Alain Neffe (synth, beats, loops, strings) and Nadine Bal (vocals) return to their 80s cassette culture roots and take advantage of newer technologies and sonic textures. Their mad variety of instruments and moods, punchy beats, hypnotic strings, groovy organ, crazy sax lines and an inventive use of sound shaping do not exclude a choir of frogs (lucky you). Bal sings like an angel, a child, a siren and an alien – a perfectly weird combo of pop, avant garde, surrealism and emotion that shares aesthetic choices with Anne Clark, Roberto Cacciapaglia, Laurie Anderson, Kraftwerk, and Die Form. Edition of 300.
