The young label Lightarmour Editions has a brand new release out: the new album by the Australian cult electronic outfit Crimson Boy aka Vince Valentini and Andy Brown. ”Street Gods and Neon Dogs” offers 10 tracks that dwell between synth/coldwave and postpunk with a clear stress on Kraftwerkian electronics.
The Perth based act Crimson Boy formed in 1983 already and soon attracted a cult following through their vinyl and cassette releases, and sporadic live performances. Crimson Boy have now been reanimated for this release which was preceded by the single “Always Alana (NightStar Remix)”, a free download which is available right here on Bandcamp.
Since you’re here … … we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 2 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute.
