Review: Existing at the interzone between Zurich, Berlin and Mexico City, Lustpoderosa serve up their fifth release here courtesy of trio Jack Pattern. Taking its cues from the early sounds of coldwave and industrial, the trio deliver a po-faced slo-mo groove on "Nella Notte", then give us the neon-lit and fishnet clad "Animal Transformation" calling to mind the early sounds of Severed Heads. There are some great remixes too, but our favourite was certainly by Sneaker (Ratlife / Uncanny Valley / Frigio) who delivered a trippy and hypnotic rendition of "Animal Transformation" that gets on a percolator style jack in the vein of Green Velvet and keeps those Jim Morrison like vocals to charming effect.
Review: Following up great releases by Jack Pattern and Hansen Windisch, Lustpoderosa now presents Leipzig based kosmische-kraut-punk live act Syncboy - who is said to have recorded these tracks live at an infamous squat in Zurich. From stunning melodic ambient journeys such as "Stolpern" through to slow burning psychedelic epics like "Green Market" or "Kiss An Elephant" respectively, or the po-faced cold wave inspired closer "Waterfalls". Recommended for fans of Vactrol Park, Vermont or Benedikt Frey. The German producer sure has a diverse repertoire musically and we're certainly intrigued by what Bodo Hansen has in store next for 2018.
