1 - UNHAPPYBIRTHDAY - KRAKEN - (12") 
WAVE TENSION


unhappybirthday are from Hamburg, Germany and offer something very nice in their approach to minimalist synth pop/melodic post punk. They tap into a nice cross section of new wave and post punk touchstones for a sizable mix of danceable rhythms. Simple in structure but resonant in scope, the few songs on this record capture the perfect balance of sad and lonely catchiness that makes spending hours in a bedroom listening on repeat seem not only reasonable but necessary. Kraken 12" (originally released on tape in 2013) marks Wave Tension's first release and unhappybirthday's third vinyl after the rereleases of both their albums (originally on tape) by LebensStrasse Records & Kingfisher Bluez.

4 - UNHAPPYBIRTHDAY - SCHAUM - (CD) 
TAPETE


If the eight new tracks can be attributed to a particular genre, shoegaze comes closest, albeit with a sense of form skilfully distilled from the 1980s; a diaphanous essence found less in concrete, constituent parts and more in the work as a whole. There is a shimmer of the vitreous elegance once epitomized by David Sylvian - without actually sounding like Japan; an echo of Sades silky stylishness without for a moment implying that this should be added to a cocktail party playlist. Instead, like the finest traces of perfume, a note here and there sparks recollections, hinting at the playful experimentation of Les Disques du Crepuscule releases.The result is bradycardic, sophisticated pop, overcast with dreams: music falling like light on mother of pearl, a transient memory of moist, warm skin.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Carlyle 02. Kane 03. Niederung 04. Iden 05. Teer 06. Tennu 07. Miriam 08. Sou
