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/

New Release! 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 - MC+MP3 - CUT SURFACE

click to enlarge Limited edition cassette release of 100 copies, with download-code included. Contains 7 songs of homerecording Cold Wave inspired Synth-Punk. Actually not from Vienna, two guys from Berlin resp. Graz, but fitting perfectly well into the CUT SURFACE catalog, with a somewhat similar sound and approach like BRUCH... https://cutsurface.bandcamp.com/album/imposition-man

New Release! J.G.G.- Irrlichter - 7" - CUT SURFACE

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

New Release! LADY LYNCH- s/t - LP - 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 Hofmüller, 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
