KÖHN / PEAKING LIGHTS / ALIEN RADIO / DUCKTAILS - LUNE ATROCE / SOLEIL AMER (7")


"One year after the 'Meet the Philly elite' 7" we finally release a fresh 4-way split. This time Köhn and Alien Radio are trancing deep into the history of synthesizer classics while Peaking Lights and Ducktails have a take on their own pop music. Köhn been called 'the godfather of Belgian electronica'. Last year he made his comeback on wax with an lp full of epic space age compositions. 'U C I M' builds on the same vibes: trancy and neo-cosmic. Ulf Schütte plays in Datashock and Phantom Horse, but his musical climaxes are definitely at home when he fools around with his modular synths. ALIEN RADIO's music follows the tradition of Conny Planck, Delia Derbyshire, Dick Raaijmakers and Ursula Bogner. 'Gedanke und Ahnung' is bleepsynthronica sounding like a sketch of a derailed sonic research project. PEAKING LIGHTS are the duo of Indra Dunis (ex-Numbers) and Aaron Coynes. 'Creatures of day creatures at night' is pure summer pop. The usual synths and drumloops made place for fuzzy calypso riffing. Dunis' vocal romanticism sounds sweet as a Brian Wilson song. In the last three years Matt Mondanile's music went around the world rather quickly, mainly under his DUCKTAILS moniker. His neo-tropic pop music is often linked to a movement that also houses the likes of James Feraro and Dolphins into the Future. 'Sprinter' is a repetitive melancholic pop song, and about the most 'indie' track we heard from Ducktails so far." (label info)
