The 5th track on our free (or pay-what-you-want to support our charity work) download compilation “Face The Beat: Session 5” is by AL, a project by the Brazilian São Paulo based duo Luciana Maria Sanches and Anastase Kyriakos. The song is also the first track the duo ever recorded, so we have a true exclusivity here.
You can listen to “Litany” right below.
The band didn’t exactly show up out of the blue for us, as one member, Anastase, also participated under the Error Fate flag on “Face The Beat: Session 4”. Error Fate started in 2012 mixing darkwave, EBM, industrial, post-punk and gothic rock. AL is somewhat different. In fact this first AL track kinda reminded us of a young Anne Clark mixed with some Wumpscut synths and some post-punk. A nice mix that definitely asks for more.
AL also launched a Facebook page, so make sure to follow them, as we are pretty sure they’ll picked up by a label anytime soon!

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 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you. The donations are safely powered by Paypal.
