Linea Aspera - IIOriginally released on cassette, this vinyl reissue of Linea Aspera’s last EP is a must have for minimal synth and darkwave enthusiasts.

The three tracks featured on this EP are wonderful synth-pop/noise/industrial pearls that translate perfectly the aesthetic of the London duo consisted of Alison Lewis and Ryan Ambridge; powerful lyrics and sexy vocals added to strong and infectious dronelike synths at their best that have a very high 80′s-feel. Linea Aspera’s music is very emotional and highly recommended for anyone who has learned that the darkness is their friend and who relish it’s cold embrace.

This collection comes in a single-sided clear vinyl with artwork printed on PVC sleeve and tracing paper insert.

Limited to 300 hand-numbered copies.

Initially this Mushy/Meddicine split saw its release last year on tape through Meddicine‘s own label SixSixSixties Records. Both sides have a similar hypnotizing quality that is bound to intrigue anyone, yet are very different at the same time.

Hailing from Italy, Mushy is like a siren; you know deep down that giving in to her seductive chanting will take you to a dark place, but you submit yourself nonetheless.

Meddicine is a different kind of enchantress. Her music is overwhelming in a harsher, more straightforward way, seducing by pulsating sound and noise rather than vocals. In other words, this vinyl reissue offers a great combination of psychedelic synths and noise that will leave no one unimpressed.

Popsimonova is the new upcoming queen of cold electro (wave) … her tracks are cold but with lots of energy… intelligent constructed tracks to make you move but also to make you take a step back and let the music work on you in different ways… this is what they call electro beyond the former Iron Curtain… and this is what we move to on any good electro party…

47 beautiful portraits of Modern Movement’s finest creatives – musicians and artists – captured by London’s magnificent Tom Kavanagh in Berlin.

The story of Modern Witch began 6 years ago in Denver, Colorado, when graphic artist Mario Zoots, singer Kristy Fenton and house veteran Kamran Khan started recording experimental music together on an old VHS camera. In the space of a few years, a couple of very limited tape and CD/R releases on labels such as Disaro and Clan Destine Records, and a series of spooky performances both in Europe and on the American continent, the trio has become a true underground reference for creepy, ritualistic dance music, in the muddy but oh so fascinating waters between Witchhouse and Minimal Synth.

Treue um Treue is very proud to present a selection of their best tracks for the first time on vinyl, on two twin-LPs of which this is the first. Drunk on 80′s cold wave, bathed in suburbian occult decadence and haunted by dead celebrities, “Hollywood” is a feast of thaumaturgic synth lines, nonchalant but captivating mpc 1000 – sequences, drugged-out spoken words and ghostly voices. American Angst or Minimal Doom electronics at their best!
