click to enlarge No.2 in the CUT SURFACE MINIATURES limited edition singles-series. Barcelona's J.G.G. is a one-man show, with synth/organ and rhythm-machine, delivering elegantly swinging Synth-Pop tunes, purely instrumental, like an electronic surf-sound version of Mr.Quintron... https://cutsurface.bandcamp.com/album/irrlichter

LADY LYNCH- s/t - n/a - CUT SURFACE

click to enlarge LADY LYNCH is a band, two women and two males from Vienna/Austria. Their first LP offers 10 tracks of a Post-Punk style with a dark and sinister atmosphere, but put into a sharp crushing, almost dis-harmonic sound. LYDIA LUNCH and DAVID LYNCH (obviously), and MALARIA come to mind as references. Check them out here: http://www.cutsurface.com/lady-lynch-lady-lynch-lp/ and there: https://cutsurface.bandcamp.com/album/lady-lynch-2

LONESOME HOT DUDES - Obey/Books - 7" - CUT SURFACE

click to enlarge Beautiful single by this feminist AND fun band from Graz/Austria! Yes, these LONESOME HOT DUDES are five ladies, actually including Eva Ursprung and Reni Hofmller, both already active in the pioneering avantgarde/impro group "rosi lebt" back in the early 1980s! And their passionate and political Post-Punk/No Wave music's not too far away from swiss legends LiLiPUT. Comes with an insert featuring the lyrics, and one handpicked photo of the band. https://cutsurface.bandcamp.com/album/obey

MELT DOWNER- s/t - 2X12" - CUT SURFACE

click to enlarge Features members of MILE ME DEAF, but here going for a full-on striking, excessively loud and hard hitting kind of psychedelic Noise-Rock! Fueled by fuzzy guitars, a thundering bass and manic drumming, all combined to a wickedly sonic trip. Outstanding! Double-12"vinyl, packed in a gatefold-cover, including download-code. https://cutsurface.bandcamp.com/album/melt-downer

New Release! MME PSYCHOSIS- BSV - MC+MP3 - CUT SURFACE

click to enlarge Madame Psychosis is an artist from Vienna. On this limited edition cassette, there's 8 songs of truly intriguing and perfectly orchestral arranged Abstract Electronic music. With the Mantra-like style of her songs, she reminds me of MORWAN, but at the other opposite end of the spectrum: While MORWAN goes for a powerfully energetic Industrial drive, MME PSYCHOSIS delivers hypnotically dark atmospheres and melancholic harmonies. Comes with download-code included. https://cutsurface.bandcamp.com/album/bsv

New Release! MURENA MURENA- Take Care Of Me - LP - CUT SURFACE

click to enlarge New album full album by Daniel Murena from Munich and his companions and quite a huge step forward since the last album ("Shame Over" in 2016). Fantastic post-everything Avant-Electro-Pop, maybe somewhere in between ATTWENGER (minus their Folk influences) and the BAD SEEDS, or anything similar to that, or something completely different...? Words mean nothing, just take a listen: https://cutsurface.bandcamp.com/album/take-care-of-me
LP contains 11 songs and comes with download-code included.
