In 2012 Australian electronic music collective Clan Analogue celebrated its
20th birthday with the Headspace
Severed Heads tribute compilation. Now a new selection of Clan Analogue
artists have emerged from their underground bedroom studios to release three
From noir electro-cabaret to abstract post-IDM synthesis to psychedelic two-step space funk, this selection of releases continues Clan Analogue=92s quest to expose new tones to the harsh environment of the modern audio landscape.
Aeriae: Nurse 2 Alyssa Type
*Aeriae is a Sydney-based practitioner of abstract electronics, here paving the way for his forthcoming album Victris with Nurse 2 Alyssa Type, a dark techno cut of cascading textures, intersecting synth lines and precisely calibrated sonics. The EP includes a genre-tripping set of remixes, distilling elements of the original into its primordial essences, from pure ambience to syncopated chaos. Look out for Victris later this year on Clan Analogue.
Actual Russian Brides: Wife Beats *
Actual Russian Brides have a diverse and quixotic creative output, layering dense lyrical excursions onto electronica extracted from old and new synthesizers and drum machines. Having relocated their studio recently from Berlin to Sydney, the new EP Wife Beats is the duo at their most ironic and darkly witty: highly danceable tracks expertly fused with seductive storytelling.
Tiatto: Full Moon
Tiatto formed in a chance encounter between Melbournite Ben Wah and Mancunian Max Devere in a Brixton garrett opposite a crackhouse. Relocating to Melbourne they enlisted master synthesist Nick Fakeman and Canadian conceptual svengali Ganz Enfarben for extra musical credibility and will to power. So what is Full Moon? Miles Davis jamming with Squarepusher or The KLF meets Hawkwind might get you half way there. Perhaps its an elegy for UK breaks before dubstep or a journey through the night from insanity to redemption. Hear the Winduptoys remix for extra abstraction.
EPs are available from Bandcamp and iTunes
