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

Genre/Influences: IDM, Cinematic.

Format: Digital.

Background/Info: Italian project Plaster has already released several works. I discovered their sound through different productions released by Kvitnu. “Midnight Allures” features three tracks plus one remix and is the first work released by Pyteca.

Content: Plaster holds onto the familiar IDM-format although the work became a bit more wafting and even moves at new paths exploring Cinematic music. The main song “Lazy Tongues” has been remixes by Pyteca label owner Vincenzo Pizzi.

+ + + : I still like the IDM basis of the work which is less explicit although still noticeable. The main song “Lazy Tongues” reveal impressive, bleeping sequences, dreamy sound waves and a slow rhythm. Another attention grabber is “Fake Spiral” for its harder kick. 

– – – : Speaking for myself I wouldn’t say this is the best Plaster-work thus far. I’m missing highlights.

Conclusion: Plaster remains warrant for modern, visionary, Electro music but they can do better.

Best songs: “Lazy Tongues”, “Fake Spiral”.

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.
