Stereophonic Space Sound Unlimited -Spooky Sound Sessions

Happy Easter you all. Instead of my annual post of Jesus Christ Surferstar - you can still get that right here in the archives - I figured you would like something different. Here you go -- everyone's FAVORITE SPY?SURF?CINEMA? group has a new bunch of tunes out and I thought you might like to add them to your Easter basket.

In the inter-stellar trajectory of the classic Peter Thomas Orchestra and 101 String's landmark album of esoteric, erotic electronica, "Astro Sounds from Beyond the Year 2000", as well as more modern masters of mood music like Jean Michel Jarre and Tangerine Dream, Switzerland's Stereophonic Space Sound Unlimited brings us their sixth CD of cinematic ear candy, "The Spooky Sound Sessions" (Dionysus Records). Tunes with titles like "Contract Killer," "The Whistler Returns," "Robotheque" and "la fille dans le train" atmospherically evoke a rainy, windswept, timelessly retro-Euro-noir world of sexy spies, androgynous androids, Danish modern furniture, space age architecture, lunar lounge lizards, leather-n-leopard clad sex kittens, sleek cars and cool people wearing stylish hats, trench coats and sunglasses - in the dark. The futuristic funk of tracks like "Record Shop" and "Sitar Jerk" give off a sort of Jess Franco 70s-sleazy grindhouse vibe, whereas "Gilera Baby" sounds like John Barry`s "Beat Girl" as reinterpreted by Laika and the Cosmonauts. "Sad City" could fit neatly on the soundtrack of any badass blaxploitation flick. Images of everything from classic giallo to Russian sci-fi movies will swim across your sonically massaged brain as you kick back and soak in these smooth, seductive sounds. There's not one extraneous part in this finely tuned musical machine. -- Will "The Thrill" Viharo for Retrospective Magazine
