Pseudo Code, BeNe GeSSeRiT, Messy Goes Insane, Human Flesh.

 

Music for the masses …

 

First up is PSEUDO CODE. On the menu, 3 subtle gems from 1981: “Drunk (Second Version)”, “Still Alive” and “Looking At Myself”. All of them worth (re)discovering and a warm and welcome alternative for the “easy” consumption music we incessantly get shoved down our throats nowadays. PSEUDO CODE, as ever, offers intense and fascinating songs with great vocals and a certain experimental edge and we’re thankful this material is “out there” again …

 

BeNe GesseRiT is back with 4 songs: “LiLLy (She WroTe Me a PoeM)”, “uN FiLeT De SaNG”, “oN PRoTèGe BieN LeS RequiNs" and “Last SuMMeR”. PoeTRy with CaPiTaL LeTTeRS, starring BeNeDiCT G., AKA Nadine Bal. These brilliant NEW songs were skillfully mixed by Alain Neffe, somewhere in 2010 and 2011.

 

And what to say about Messy Goes Insane? A late Neffe-project, that I didn’t know yet. More of the same and yet different? Messy seems to be a female Dutch artist, living in Axel (The Netherlands), with a remarkable voice and a genuine fondness for weird and somewhat darker lyrics. The Messy/Neffe contribution to 4 in 1 volume 3, consists of 5 songs from 2002: “Lemonacid”, “Beams”, “All Mothers”, “Horses Run Free” en “Sex Out Of Order”, an elegant and intriguing fivesome. My personal faves? “All Mothers” and “Sex Out of Order”, a vibrant mix of traditional African and experimental European music?

 

We end in absolute beauty, with “Perché”, from Human Flesh, a kind of spoken word performance/electronic opera with experimental intermezzo’s and gorgeous Italian vocals, that took more than 20 years to finish. It was patiently crafted into a 5star/7 chapter “experience”, awaiting your enjoyment. Human Flesh … it never tasted better!

 

As usual, limited to 500 copies!

Pseudo Code, BeNe GeSSeRiT, Messy Goes Insane, Human Flesh.

 

Music for the masses …

 

Starten doet EE Tapes traditiegetrouw subliem, dit keer met PSEUDO CODE.

Op het menu 3 rijke, doorleefde meesterwerkjes uit 1981 met “dragende” bassen, drums uit een machientje, ijle synthesizers en intrigerende vocals: “Drunk (Second Version)”, “Still Alive” en “Looking At Myself” zijn stuk voor stuk sublieme songs die het ontdekken of herbeluisteren meer dan waard zijn, antigif voor de makkelijke consumptiemuziek die we vandaag voortdurend door onze strot geramd krijgen, vertrouwd bevreemdend, intens fascinerend, naïef experimenteel ….

 

Ook terug van de partij: BeNe GesseRiT, hier met 4 songs: “LiLLy (She WroTe Me a PoeM)”, “uN FiLeT De SaNG”, “oN PRoTèGe BieN LeS RequiNs" en “Last SuMMeR”. PoëZie met HooFDLeTTeRS, beklijvend en doorwrocht. In de hoofdrol: BeNeDiCT G., AKA Nadine Bal. Haar intrigerende, bijzondere stem, die me vaak doet denken aan Laurie Anderson, schittert andermaal tegen een eerder minimale of zelfs totaal ontbrekende instrumentale achtergrond. Deze NIEUWE songs werden vakkundig gemixed door aLaiN NeFFe, ergens in 2010 en 2011.

 

En wat te zeggen over Messy Goes Insane? Een laat Neffe-project dat ik nog niet kende, doch geenszins het zwakke broertje van de CD, met doorleefde vocals en weirde lyrics van Messy, een Nederlandse artieste uit Axel. Meer van hetzelfde en toch weer anders? In zekere zin wel … De hier aanwezige songs dateren van 2002 en zijn een streepje donkerker dan de BeNe-nummers. De tracklist? “Lemonacid”, “Beams”, “All Mothers”, “Horses Run Free” en “Sex Out Of Order”, een smaakvol 5tal met een prominente rol voor de viool en als uitschieters het bezwerende “All Mothers” en het schitterende “Sex Out of Order”, een mix van traditioneel Afrikaans en experimenteel Europees.

 

Tot slot is er “Perché”, van Human Flesh, een soort van spoken word performance/elektronische opera met experimentele intermezzo’s. Een modern klassiek verhaal, verteld in 7 bedrijven, door wondermooie Italiaanse stemmen, dat blijkbaar begon in 1990 en nu eindelijk opduikt ter onzer verblijding. Human Flesh sluit deze “4 in 1 volume 3” af zoals het hoort, mooi, intens, stijlvol experimenteel en gewoon een beetje gek. 

 

Zoals steeds gelimiteerd tot 500 exemplaren.
