Swedish one-man EBM assault squad ELM will be releasing its debut album “Hardline” tomorrow, but Side-Line wouldn’t be Side-Line if we couldn’t already offer you an exclusive streaming of the full album so you can hear why so many people are so ecstatic about this great album!
ELM is the new project by elektro veteran Peter Elm (Restricted Area). The “Hardline” album was mastered by fellow Swedish musician Pontus Stålberg (Spetsnaz). Expect beats and synth layers that will remind the best of DAF and Nitzer Ebb plus also some Front 242 ingredients.
The album is available from tomorrow on as a limited deluxe carton box 2CD edition with a bonus disc featuring 4 exclusive bonus tracks, 5 alternative remixes signed by ELM himself, plus 2 remixes by compatriots Pouppée Fabric and Spetsnaz. You can also get it as a normal CD and as an extended HQ audio download on Bandcamp.
Here’s an all exclusive preview of all of the tracks!
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.
