ANA THREAT- Cold Lve - LP - CUT SURFACE

click to enlarge First full album (10 songs) by this one-wonderwoman-band from Vienna. A shamanistic pop-album drawing sounds from lo-fi garage, sci-fi trash and tribalistic rhythms. As "retro" as this may seem, it's completely the opposite, creating a whole new world of her own with individual expressions! The only comparison that comes to my mind is the very first JULIE RUIN (Kathleen Hanna) album, but Ana Threat is performing in her own universe here.
LP with download-code included. https://cutsurface.bandcamp.com/

BOILER, THE- Body=Death - LP - CUT SURFACE

click to enlarge From Vienna, featuring 6 tracks of hypnotic Electronica, experiments between Ambient and Techno, mostly with female vocals... and if I'm not totally wrong, the BOILER is the "electronic alter ego" of ANA THREAT. Pretty fascinating sounds going on here. LP with download-code included.

BRUCH- The Lottery - LP - CUT SURFACE

click to enlarge The highly anticipated 3rd full album (13 songs, LP with download-code included)! It's Synth-Pop, Post-Punk, Dark Wave, and goes beyond all that. A fantastic album, that's challenging, distressed, demonic, upbeat, urgent and first class entertainment. Forget David Bowie! Forget Alan Vega! Here's Bruch, the new King of Low Frequency... (pun intended!)

DAZED PILOTS- K.T.F.T. - LP - CUT SURFACE

click to enlarge Surprising second LP by this rocking twopiece from Austria. Filled with 9 tracks, ranging from angry Punk, over trashy Garage Blues Rock, and KBD Proto-Punk, to blistering Glam-Pop. With all the sentiments required for making it a great album. Nasty, adrenalin-fuelled and vibrating! References: DOO RAG, WHITE STRIPES, or any other simple but full-on effectively and excellently rocking twopiece.

DINO SPILUTTINI- To Be A Beast - LP - CUT SURFACE

click to enlarge Limited edition of 300 copies on green vinyl, incl. download-code! An epic album with 12 tracks. No songs, but sound-sculptures. Deep and rich sweeping drones and vibrant ambient melancholy, somehow comparable to his compatriot fellow FENNESZ... https://cutsurface.bandcamp.com/album/to-be-a-beast

IMPOSITION MAN- s/t - LP - CUT SURFACE

click to enlarge First full album by this Berlin-via-Graz-based project. Features 9 tracks of pounding Synth-Punk, with impelling machine-beats, brusque and sharp bass/guitar, sinister synths, and vocals. A cold and dark atmosphere, but always moving forward with bouncy pumping drive and being enormously catchy. LP comes with two inserts and download-code included.

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
