Genre/Influences: Cinematographic, IDM, Experimental.
Background/Info: One more new (mini)-album for German prolific artist Sascha Lemon aka LPF12.
Content: This new work features 5 songs, which are mainly driven by the Cinematographic sound approach of the past few years. But LPF12 also moves back to an earlier period, which was mainly characterized by the IDM approach.
+ + + : My favorite tracks are the ones where you can hear a true and perfect osmosis between the different influences. You’ll even notice glitch elements running through “Closed Black Windows”. But the best cut is for sure “Kept You Out Of My Mind” for its intelligent sound treatments on top of the Cinematographic basis. The work has been accomplished by subtle arrangements and little sonic details.
– – – : I regret there are no other cuts as “Kept You Out Of My Mind”, which is the most elaborated and sophisticated one.
Conclusion: “A Clear Bright New Sky” sounds like the right exposure to illustrate the work of this artist.
Best songs: “Kept You Out Of My Mind”, “Closed Black Windows”.
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. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. 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.
