20.09.2021 :: 80s Belgian Coldwave Act The Ultimate Dreamers Debut Video for "I Love You!?"
80s Belgian Coldwave Act The Ultimate Dreamers Debut Video for Picture it: Lessines, Belgium, mid-1980s. The once-vibrant city that saw the birth of surrealist artists such as René Magritte and Louis Scutenaire had crumbled into a musical desert. Three friends decided to create a band comprised of voice, bass guitar, and analogue synths, welcoming two more into the fold soon afterward.
Calling themselves The Ultimate Dreamers, the group were influenced by Belgian coldwave and British post-punk music, but the teenagers forged their own paths. Between 1986 and 1990, they wrote and self-recorded numerous tracks at home before calling it quits. The band's frigid, organic tones and melancholy melodies (often verging on the dissonant) serve as a backdrop for themes of raw dreams, distressed love, and social criticism. The result is reminiscent of The Neon Judgement, Section 25, Minimal Compact, and Trisomie 21.
Thirty years on, the recordings resurfaced during the Covid era, and they were brought to the ear of one Dimitri: the record label magnate behind Wool-E Discs. An album deal was immediately offered to the long-defunct band. The Ultimate Dreamers have been resurrected, including three original members and a new inductee, exhuming, resuscitating and enriching their repertoire with new creations. After selection and mastering, 11 tracks became Live Happily While Waiting For Death, out today.
"I Love You?!", the first single off the album, is a highly catchy and strange minimal synth and post-punk track. The video clip for the song takes imagery from the cult sexploitation film Olga's House of Shame.
Watch below:

Live Happily While Waiting For Death is out on October 1, 2021.

20.09.2021 :: Johnson McCloud of The Blue Angel Lounge's New Album "The War is Over"
Johnson McCloud of The Blue Angel Lounge's New Album Why can't we let it go? Singer, producer, and elementary school teacher Nils Deweer, alias Johnson McCloud, ignites the question of purpose, understanding, and passion in 2021 Europe with The War Is Over. Deweer, formerly of the psychedelic underground giant Blue Angel Lounge, recorded his seventh album himself with his band Johnson McCloud & The Doobies.
Created during the pandemic, the album deals with the special circumstances and requirements of this time. During lockdown restrictions, Deweer had the opportunity to think about himself, his environment, interpersonal relationships and media self-portrayal to process these impressions on The War Is Over.
"In this regard, the title of the album can be interpreted in different ways," says Deweer. "On the one hand, this exudes euphoria, an anticipation of a new start together after the time of the Corona-related, cultural standstill. On the other hand, the exclamation can also be interpreted in terms of resignation or hopelessness. Like the current situation, the album fluctuates back and forth between both emotional states, but without wanting to commit itself entirely."
The album opens with the wistful Silent Fall, channeling the earnestness of Big Country. The track is followed by Unknown Night, rife with dreamy hooks and mid-90s reverie, reminiscent of The Lightning Seeds meets early Radiohead. Bottom Line takes the tempo to a slower-paced ballad, highlighted with unusual psychedelic elements; The Flawless and Nice takes a minimal approach, focusing on a gorgeous call and response layer vocal. Let Me Sleep continues this trend, really drawing from the Ian McCulloch school of songwriting here. This is repeated in The War Is Over, taking inspiration from the restrictions of Covid as well as The Velvet Underground and Lush: a heartfelt, straightforward ballad that packs a wallop of emotion. Bedhead verges more into early Britpop territory, with psychedelic guitar elements and emotive singing; the album closes with the expansive, optimistic beauty of Endless Summer, sounding at times like a lost Sonic Youth track.
Remixing and mastering for the album were done by Eroc (Grobschnitt). A documentary was filmed about the creative process in creating the album, which was featured in post-punk.com in June of 2021.
The War is Over is out now. Listen below:

20.09.2021 :: Trace Amount Collaborates with Qual to Create the Annihilating "Death Match"
Trace Amount Collaborates with Qual to Create the Annihilating The collaborative project between New York City-based producer, Trace Amount, and post-punk-cum-EBM mainstay, William Maybelline (under the name Qual and who is one-half of Lebanon Hanover), wreaks havoc on the new EP, Alien Dust. Ignited by slabs of sound that pummel and drill into the brain's cortex, the track "Death Match" is grimy and raw, an annihilation of industrial soundscapes. Trace Amount and Qual's EP sits somewhere between Nine Inch Nails' production and the severity of Hypnoskull's music, all while representing the new strain of industrial - much like Statiqbloom's endeavors. Watch the video for "Death Match" below:

Alien Dust is comprised of bursts of energy - compositions that are both ravenous and frenetic as "Death Match" clocks in at just over two minutes and the entire EP is just over ten minutes long. Trace Amount put together the mechanical rhythms and vocals in NYC while Qual worked remotely on the synthesized elements in Athens which made for a collaboration none of us knew we needed... until now.
Alien Dust will be out via the NYC-based electronic collective Faktor Music on October 29th.
