(By Elise Din) Saint Nicolas had a nice surprise for us this morning with the launch of the debut single from quite an exciting newcomer act. On the "Life is short" single the Spanish duo Mondträume brings a modern synth pop style with strong club appeal and a touch of darkness.
The single acts as a teaser for the release of their forthcoming debut album "Empty" that will surely appeal to all fans of bands like Wolfsheim, Namnambulu, Melotron or Beborn Beton. The single also features a club mix of the title song by Cosmic Armchair and a more laid back pop one by Norway's best electropop export product Electro Spectre. Add to that a dark-elektro one of the B-side track "Parasite" and you know you are in for a very good treat.
Warmly recommended! Available now via iTunes, Bandcamp and Spotify.

East coast based act UCNX is releasing a new LP, "Replicator", on DSBP Records offering a mix of remixes and covers. Much like their 2009 single "Run Your Body" which fused Iron Maiden and Nitzer Ebb together into a tongue-in-cheek dancefloor offering, "Replicator" brings together remixes from the band's last album, the 2011 released "Generation Damaged", along with a selection of brand new cover tunes that range from such bands as Ministry and Leaether Strip to other influences like metalhead Ozzy Osbourne and 80's pop stars Tears For Fears. Also included is the band's take on Nine Inch Nails' "Terrible Lie".
The remixes were executed by Society Burning, Aesthetische, Digicore, Audiowar, 90's electro act Terminal Sect, and UCNX's own new EBM-ified take on "Still".
'Replicator' comes in both a standard CD version, as well as a deluxe edition package that comes with 5 exclusive bonus tracks (including a cover of Killing Joke's "Adorations" and "Eyedentify (Nuclear)") and a 18" x 24" poster signed by the band.
You can order here. The band offers its cover of Nine Inch Nails' "Terrible Lie" below. (...)

You can indeed call that a long incubation period.

(By our Norwegian correspondent Jan Ronald Stange / photo by Espen Ixtlan) In 1987-1988, Shatoo sold well over 100.000 records in Norway alone. The single "Overload" was 11 weeks at Number 1 in Norway, and also the 2 following singles, "Dangertown" and "Santorini" made it into the Number 1 spot. But the story was short-lived, and singer Dag Brandth released a solo-album in 1988 + a couple of singles, before disappearing from the scene completely. (See also our story Norwegian cult synth pop act Shatoo prepare comeback.)
Earlier this year, the single "Nothing That I Wouldn't Do" was released in Norway and did very well on radio, and a comeback gig was done for 4000 happy campers at Festningen in Halden, Norway. Now a new EP is ready, and the title track "Floodlights" is reaching far out beyond the Norwegian borders with its international sound, and was mixed by Kristoffer Bonsaksen at Propeller Music Division. (Editor's note: Dag pitched us the track at the beginning of November and loved it.) Also included on the EP are ”Floodlights” remixes by Technomancer and Angst Pop, as well as a couple of versions of the old classic "Dangertown", and one of Dag's solo-singles from 1988, "One Night Love".
The single will be out on December 13th via Emmo.Biz Records (but can be ordered right now), with a first edition released as a numbered limited edition ED digi-pack CD in 500 copies, and digitally distributed via Sub Culture Records.
In 2014 a new single "Movies" is scheduled for release in February/March, followed by a full album.
Shatoo in 2013 consists of the 2 original members, Dag Brandth and Calle Varfjell, as well as Geir Bratland (ex-Apoptygma Berzerk) and Per Aksel Lundgreen (ex-Apoptygma Berzerk + Cronos Titan/Chinese Detectives/Angst Pop/Rossetti’s Compass). The production and remixing was executed by Roy-Julian Digre a.k.a. Technomancer.
