MMx088 The Secret Sound – My LovE

Finally, 3 new tracks from The Secret Sound – that is, one original track, and two remixes of that track – My LovE. These three tracks sees Kristine Marie Aasvang’s hypnotic vocals woven into a web of electronic pulses, drones and textures – it sounds like nothing I’ve ever heard before, and it’s just gorgeous. And it comes with this poem in Norwegian;

My LovE

I myk slow motion
forandrer det bevegelsen
komponentene i beherskelsen
ut av kroppen
det drypper snart
elveløpene av blod
når alt pompes til
ringer en jeg kaller
det er så lite som skal til
så rewinder kjemien seg
– jeg sublimeres

Artwork by Kristine herself.

MMx009 Ars Gratia Artis – Lesbian Race

This is the ying or the yang of Amor Fati, the same setup that made a contemporary masterpiece for the label’s first ever release. It’s strictly acapella, and it lasts for about three minutes and a half. The first track, which could and should be a serious radio hit contender, ‘Lesbian Race’, is a homage to the lesbian race, a bumper car competition in southern New Zealand every summer (where only lesbians can enter). The second track is a bit more of a mystery. ‘Third Rail Pick Up Shoe’, sounds like a Mars Volta-title, which ain’t bad, not bad at all. Props to Nara Vieira da Silva Osga who took the brilliant photo for the cover, photoshopped by Morten.
