il Cristo Fluorescente's debut album, a dense and reverby wall of sound crafted with both electronic and analog sounds and post-human paranoia.
Freely inspired by Huxley’s masterpiece, Brave New World is the result of a bitter thinking about the days we are living. Human beings quickly turning into sterile survivals, in terrifyingly freaky things like a Chaplin’s “Modern Times” redirected by the most hallucinate Lars Von Trier.
The whole album, released under a Creative Commons License on three different netlabels (Politicide.net
from Germany, Kreatonika.com
from Sweden and Second Family Records from Italy), is pervaded by panic attack sounds, headaches, claustrophobia and modern paranoia, though there’s still a little space for feelings and for those tiny moments of sweetness representing the few remnants of humanity we are still able to afford ourselves.
Sometimes I think this stuff would sound good on the dancefloor of that wonderfully insane disco I never met.
My favourite disco after all.
