Review: Sydney Valette - 'How Many Lives'

Sydney Valette’s How Many Lives LP was released as a ten-year anniversary album, celebrating a decade of his musical career. Since his early releases, French born Sydney Valette’s solo-project has progressed drastically in the past ten years - changing from the high-pitched chiptune style of 2009, into an evolved darkwave synth. Although some of those chipper synths still can be heard this latest release, there is a prevalent variation of sounds throughout the tracks; this release is surely not being constricted to a single style.

Lotus Feed - Sounds from a Silent Age

The album Sounds from a Silent Age by the band Lotus Feed is a very interesting piece for those who are familiar with the evolution of alternative music in the 80’s. This album explores a very specific period in Post Punk and Goth and seems to re-create in perfect detail that period where a branch of Post Punk was slowly giving birth to the first Goth / Wave sounds. We cannot put a a specific date to the birth of Goth but we can definitely place it during the interval between 1981 to 1983.

Neon Tzigane (zee-gan) consist of Howling Mina and Samson Deluxe, and they create what they call “gothic metallic synthpop” in the spooky woods of South London. This is their debut mini album, which consists of four tracks, and they are heavily inspired by Romany mythology, so let’s check out what this sounds like!
