Part super cool nu metal, part cheesy pop music. I’m back an forth between how much I like the first part and how much the second detracts me. Overall I try to focus on the good bits and those are really-really good. It would be good to see them live to see how this whole things play out, usually on a concert you see their true self.
It’s like if you played IDM ambient but with live instruments (which reminds me of the time I attended a Plaid concert played by an orchestra in a concert hall), other times industrial jazz and a touch of experimental music. But it’s rather smooth and pleasant, not harsh.
Electronic music on the bass side and with lots of flow and power to it. Based on the most recent Moderat and Modeselektor records, my take is that the Moderat project was great for two records but it should be left behind to shine from the past and Modeselektor should rather do what’s really their thing. This record is as awesome as any other Modeselektor output, instantly wanting to hear them play live and rock the roof off.
I mentioned this before when Lucifer came out as a single. Just putting the album on this shelf for the record, too, absolutely worthy as a full-lengh unpacking of what I’ve heard coming in the single. It’s an amazingly well crafted metal record.
Electronic music with some IDM and melodic edge. He’s citing Kraftwerk as influence, and the German electronics is definitely there.
Such cool girl power rock from the indie-garage axis, but mostly just hot rock and roll.
I have such a hard time waiting for Dalma Berger to produce new music, I’m hungry for every new things she makes. She definitely takes her time to release new material with the latest DB Armitage alias but this record is also showing that it’s worth the wait. Beautiful (and sorrowful) electronic pop music from the non-mainstream kind.
It has been interesting to see her journey from the Realistic Crew and Singas Project through Volkova Sisters to where she is now. And whatever she produced or contributed to always orbited around the musical aesthetics that I completely adore. Probably it’s an easy statement that she’s also my favorite Hungarian female vocalist of all time.
Amazing electro, not simple but pure. Hacker music—not the EBM kind but from the Anthony Rother school.
Atmospheric electronic music, like a soundtrack to a movie that never was. Genres go mainly on the ambient to synthwave axis.
Being exposed to lots of sci-fi and futuristic noir things, it’s easy to see this as a perfect backdrop for a cyberpunk book or RPG play session.
Electronic ambient music with lots of busy city life field recordings. It’s not like a beatless soundscape populated by urban noises, it’s often pretty upbeat. And that, mixed with the sounds of busy streets create this quite lively atmosphere, which feels like a rushing metropolis of ants.
