ALE MANIA- A, Who Sings That Beat? - LP - VOLAR RECORDS

click to enlarge Following their great single, here's the first full-length album by this band/project from San Diego, featuring ex- and current members of the SESS and BEATERS! A very eclectic album, containing 13 songs, ranging from an 80s-like Minimal-Synth approach, to Post-Wave and Electro-Pop like FUTURE ISLANDS, and some similarities to PPM-related artists like SMALL BLACK or SILK FLOWERS, and then back again to fuzzy Garage-Rock songs. My personal impression is that with some of the songs here, I feel reminded of ROXY MUSIC...
Limited edition with 400 on black, 100 on orange vinyl, and ALL of the copies we did get are on orange vinyl! http://alemania.bandcamp.com/
