PARADOX OBSCUR releases singles and rarities

30th of March 2021, 17:15

Toxic Razor and Kriistal Ann came together to form the Athens, Greece-based dark electronic duo Paradox Obscur in early 2014. As one of the few electronic ensembles to record their albums in real time, the duo are able to capture the essence and magic of the moment without the aid of sequencing and editing software. Paradox Obscur then take it all a step further, utilizing vintage synthesizers and drum machines to create their captivating raw sound. While the prolific Toxic Razor and Kriistal Ann have worked on many projects apart, it is with Paradox Obscur where their critically acclaimed talents have resulted in the release of 4 full-length albums and an additional five EPs, supported by scores of dynamic live performances all over the European map.

Paradox Obscur makes its Metropolis Records debut with the release of an explosive exclusive collection entitled "Singles & Rarities" on March 12th, 2021.

On this release, you will find tracks that are released earlier on various samplers and could not be found on any album by the band.

Anne Clark announces new album 'Synaesthesia - Anne Clark Classics Re-Worked'

30th of March 2021, 11:15

For more than 40 years Anne Clark has held a unique place in contemporary music.

Over this period, she created numerous extraordinary works with which the exceptional UK artist was able to celebrate great success and recognition.

With the new album "Synaesthesia - Anne Clark Classics Re-Worked" (FDA / Anne Clark), which will be released on 28 May, Anne Clark has once again succeeded in offering her audience something very special.

The idea for "Synaesthesia - Anne Clark Classics Re-Worked" was born last year, which, apart from the pandemic, was overshadowed by Anne's cancer diagnosis.

The disruption meant looking for new ways of reaching her audience. "Live" shows and recording were no option.

So the idea developed little by little to create an album of "reworkings" of her material. These would be remakes and remixes as imagined and realised by some of the most interesting and
creative musicians, DJs and producers currently working in the electronic music scene.

"Synaesthesia - Anne Clark Classics Re-Worked" provides an eclectic mix of fascinating interpretations by both long-time musical partners of Anne, (herrB and Thomas Rückoldt) and esteemed figures of the current electronic scene including Solomun, (with whom she collaborated for his latest album), Blank & Jones, Andreas Brecht and Yagya.
The album will showcase Anne's continued and deep reaching influence over generations.

The Album will be released as Double CD Digi and also as Double Vinyl.

The CD contains exclusive new liner notes by Anne and the featured artists too.

Ascent (Lyrics)

I first saw you
Without love and then you knew
Your fingers reached
I moved in the distance breached

Tell me what I'm doing here
Tell me what I'm doing here

To my surprise
I kissed you, you made me rise
Now by my side
I've missed you and let it slide

Tell me what I'm doing here
Tell me what I'm doing here

If all I ever wanted wasn't good for you
If the thing that I said, they just weren't true
Ascend, ascend my friend
I turned my head
And looked back, I had been led
When my heart jumped
We lost touch, our love had slumped

Tell me what I'm doing here
Tell me what I'm doing here

If all I ever wanted wasn't good for you
If the thing that I said, they just weren't true

Ascend, ascend my friend
I can see you looking down to keep away from me

But I'm stuck with this lack of ability
I can't refrain
From coming here
It causes pain
You're so sincere

Ascend, I must ascend
So now alone
I find out your heart is stone
A helping hand
There is none from where I stand

Tell me what I'm doing here
Tell me what I'm doing here

If all I ever wanted wasn't good for you
If the thing that I said, they just weren't true
Then don't restrain from telling me
That all this pain is good for me
I can see you looking down to keep away from me
But I'm stuck with this lack of ability
I can't restrain from coming here
It causes pain you're so sincere

Ascend
Ascend, I must ascend

Andy LaPlegua (Combichrist) reveals new solo project: LAPLEGUA and drops its debut single 'I Will Heal'!

29th of March 2021, 17:15

Andy LaPlegua (Combichrist) reveals in his solo project that emotionality can be an incredible strength. LAPLEGUA is marrying dark angular elements and emotionally transports the listener to this heyday of the genre in a way that leaves the existing behind.

Andy LaPlegua states about his solo project LAPLEGUA and its debut single:

"LAPLEGUA is my most personal musical project to date. It gives me the freedom to write exactly what I want, and express exactly how I feel. 'I Will Heal' sits very close to home. We all have gone through massive amounts of problems over the last year, and this song is one of many stories of my own personal mental health."

The release of the first single "I Will Heal" recalls future-oriented back to his origins with ICON OF COIL, but goes less into the electronic direction, and creates a spectacular hybrid between alternative new wave post-punk and eighties goth rock:

"I personally chose to call the music of LAPLEGUA "alternative" music, because that's exactly what it is, and alternative to everything else I do, and an alternative to everything else out there. With inspirations from 80's goth rock, to Nick Cave and Tom Waits, I just let the beast in me completely free in the studio," describes Andy his promising new project and concludes:

"'I Will Heal' might be the first you hear of my new music, but there will be a lot more in the time to come."

On this day, 41 years ago, Kraftwerk performed Das Model on German TV.

29th of March 2021, 07:00

On 29 March 1982 Kraftwerk perfomed 'Das Model' ('The Model') live on German television station ZDF.
The single was already released in Germany as 7” in 1978.

On 6 February 1982, the single ‘The Model’ reached the Top 1 of the UK Singles Chart.

Still, in Germany, Das Model, never climbed higher than the 7th position in the German Single charts. After one week it descended again, still remaining about 20 weeks in the charts

Even-though the band initially added the English sung version as only a B-side on their new single ‘Computer Love’ in 1981, DJ’s and the radio audience seemed to prefer this B-side instead of the A-side. After Capitol Records/EMI noticed the commercial potential they re-released the single almost immediately, this time ‘The Model’ as A-side. Apparently this was decided by Capitol Records/EMI much against the band’s own will. Nevertheless this smart strategy by EMI resulted in ‘The Model’ becoming the number one in the UK single charts on 6 February 1982. The single managed to hang in the UK top 75 for a total of 21 weeks.

Unable to deny the succes another 7” was released by the band, and its label Kling Klang / EMI Electrola, bearing both versions ‘The Model’ and ‘Das Model’.

Das Model/The Model was written by Karl Bartos and Ralf Hütter and with artist Emil Schult collaborating on the lyrics and was the preliminary single for their upcoming and legendary album Die Mensch-Maschine or The Man-Machine.


The Model

She's a model and she's looking good
I'd like to take her home that's understood
She plays hard to get, she smiles from time to time
It only takes a camera to change her mind
She's going out tonight but drinking just champagne
And she has been checking nearly all the men
She's playing her game and you can hear them say
She is looking good, for beauty we will pay
She's posing for consumer products now and then
For every camera she gives the best she can
I saw her on the cover of a magazine
Now, she's a big success, I want to meet her again


Das Model
Sie ist ein Model und sie sieht gut aus
Ich nähm sie heut gerne mit zu mir nach Haus
Sie wirkt so kühl, an sie kommt niemand ran
Doch vor der Kamera da zeigt sie was sie kann

Sie trinkt in Nachtclubs immer Sekt (Korrekt!)
Und hat hier alle Männer abgecheckt`
Im Scheinwerferlicht ihr junges Lächeln strahlt
Sie sieht gut aus und Schönheit wird bezahlt

Sie stellt sich zur Schau für das Konsumprodukt
Und wird von Millionen Augen angeguckt
Ihr neues Titelbild ist einfach fabelhaft
Ich muß sie wieder seh'n, ich weiß sie hat's geschafft

Songwriters: Emil Schult / Ralf Huetter / Karl Bartos
