🇺🇦 Side-Line stands with Ukraine - Show your Support

Genre/Influences: Industrial, Experimental.

Format: Digital, Vinyl.

Background/Info: French female artist Caroline Laure Masson is already active for a few years, but still has to reach a wider recognition. She now signed to Ant-Zen releasing the EP “Carnation”

Content: The EP features 4 songs, which are mixing hot, sensual whispers and vocals together with an Industrial-anarchistic sound. The last cut is a live track.

+ + + : This work sounds like a challenge, but definitely one I support. It’s an audacious fusion between Industrial-free style music and hot, sexy vocals. This record still has passages with a strong visual appeal -or is just my personal fantasy when being under the influence of Mei’s vocals. I however also like the menacing sequences and great Industrial arrangements.

– – – : Mei clearly sounds like an experiment and some parts are hardly accessible for a wider audience because of the total sound anarchy.

Conclusion: Industrial music can be really hot and sexual so this will be your first Industrial intercourse…

Best songs: “Burn Dirty”, “Lithe – Live”.  

Rate: 7.

I have been working for over 30 years with Side-line as the main reviewer. My taste is eclectic, uncoventional and I prefer to look for the pearls, even if the bands are completely unknown, thus staying loyal to the Side-Line philosophy of nurturing new talents.

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.
