BLITZKRIEG BABY u.a. auf BELÄTEN
Das schwedische Tape-Label BELÄTEN glänzt schon wieder mit drei neuen Veröffentlichungen, wie immer auf Kassette plus Download:
Kids' World EP
Blitzkrieg Baby are back after 2012's epic Porcus Norvegius CD on Neuropa. And what a return. Four brand new, bile-spewing pork rind delights, backed up by four, previously released compilation tracks, and a reworking of Children In Uniform from the above-mentioned album.
Blitzkrieg Baby fuses diverse influences from Industrial, Electronic Pop and Neo-Classical into dissonant marching music for the balaclava-wearing youths secretly rallying in the pig pens and gutters of the bleak post-industrial wasteland Blitzkrieg Baby live in. Kids’ World EP dives face first into the stink-hole of humanity in the present and impending future; child soldiers, paranoia, rape rallies, broken childhood, terror, and death, often delivered with a sardonic smile.
Trying to describe the works of Sebastian Melmoth is a Sisyphus task if there ever was one. Just when you think you've figured them out, they throw something new into the mix and you're back where you started. Through these 30 minutes of music, we're treated to post-rock vibes, psychedelic ballads, epic dirges, motorik-driven acoustic dance music, twitching post-punk, all wrapped in a distinctly intellectual package. What makes them all that more alluring is that they somehow manage to make this bewildering melting-pot of styles gel, and seem completely natural.
Added as digital bonus tracks, are three remixes. DTT twists Presley Honey into blissful chamber pop, Bass Clef adds an even more peculiar atmosphere to Prosopagnosia, and in the hands of Jonas 'cup MT' Golland the same track is turned into what can only be described as Art House.
Jason Sloan as a long history making ambient soundscapes, which is evident in L'Avenir's dreamy, cinematic minimal synth. But through the hazy din of reverb-drenched atmospheres, melancholy pop gems appear. Simultaneously the preface and the follow up to last years The Wait (recorded before, released after), this cassette every bit as engaging. Song after song drip like a slow rain on empty city streets, the scent of wet asphalt in the air. L'Avenir's music is heart-achingly beautiful and overpowering in it's grandeur, yet somehow comforting and warm.
Sloan is a Professor teaching full-time in the Interactive Arts department along with being the founder and program coordinator for the Sound Art concentration at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, Maryland.
