Various Artists - Sore

After the success of ‘A Visual And Auditory Reminder Of The Beauty Of Life’, Seja’s first compilation on vinyl, a second edition was about to be expected soon; people keep on asking about it.

The combination of well-known and less known, European and overseas, turns this release into a scenic view of the state of the contemporary alternative electronic music scene. Hard pruning work is interspersed with delicate songs and it is this that makes this album so surprising and special. It is striking quality with carefully chosen sequence of songs. Seja herein has a sure “fingerspitzengefühl” for which ‘SORE’ sounds like one logical piece.

Vinyl edition of 300.

ImiAFan + Dario Seraval - Against The Walls

“Against The Walls” by ImiAFan + Dario Seraval is a stifling and melancholic minimal electro MLP with gothic influences build around lyrics from eastern Europe punk bands GRC, Berlinski Zid and the Slovenian poet Tomaž Šalamun.

ImiAFan did a lot of releases at different labels before and worked with greats like Adrian Smith (ClickClick), Makina Girgir, Charles Kent and others. The collaboration with the Slovenian Dario Seraval originated from his deep admiration for BORGHESIA, the band in which Dario Seraval takes the lead vocals on his behalf. A few years ago Dario contributed to ImiAFan’s Neurozone album. It is this cooperation that developed and resulted in this minialbum.

Music composed by Imi Vegh, Miki Bernath and Dario Seraval. Vocals by Dario Seraval. Imi Vegh is known by his artist name ImiAFan. He contributed to the Seja sampler “A Visual And Auditory Reminder Of The Beauty Of Life” in co-operation with Adrian Smith (Click Click) with the song “Try One”.

Venin Carmin - Glam Is Gone

‘Glam Is Gone’ is the vinyl debut of the French multi-instrumentalist Venin Carmin. She wrote all songs, lyrics and played all instruments by herself. Apparantly for a good reason she recorded the album at ‘Death To Majors Studio’, for this lady is averse to conventions. Venin Carmin has clear references in the New Wave and Post-punk of the eighties but manages to transfer this just as well with a modern twist. That makes “Glam Is Gone” into a contemporary album.

The lyrics, written from a female perspective, are about relationships, boredom, sex and violence. Sung in a naive kind of way they are occasionally caustic in its observations. Venin Carmin comes with an album full of goodies that changes flavor before you have in mind. It easily can put you on the wrong track. This moreish!
