The Golden Filter
Autonomy

Autonomy, the latest LP from The Golden Filter, is also the first released through the band’s own 4GN3S imprint. On Autonomy the duo of Penelope Trappes & Stephen Hindman turn in a set of dark and politicised synth-pop. Feminist rhetoric and state-of-the-nation concerns are snuck under the radar here, covered by sensual beats that draw from Italo-Disco, EBM and minimal wave. It’s all very Italians Do It Better.

The Golden Filter
Dislocation

The Golden Filter are a duo who mix retro electronics with post-punk and their sound has been likened to Human League-meets-Siouxsie and the Banshees. Dislocation is their new 5-track EP and contains the track Talk Talk Talk, which you may have heard with increasing frequency at festivals last summer. 12” EP on 4GN3S.

The Golden Filter
Dub Of Times

The ever-discerning Optimo have pressed up this limited run of The Golden Filter dubs with the dancefloor in mind. While the original version of ‘End of Times’ was an Italo joy, it was too slow to do real damage in the dance. Here, the problem is solved by two re-rubs - the ‘Golden’ one at 103 bpm, the ‘Silver’ clocking in 118. ‘Silver’ is classic Optimo fare, while ‘Golden’ recalls the label’s excellent collaborative release between Golden Teacher and Dennis Bovell. There’s also a drone-and-a-capella version at the back end of the 12”.

Lauer / The Golden Filter
CinCin10

London lot Cin Cin scramble chums Phillip Lauer and Empire Stater duo The Golden Filter for this split twelve. Lauer paints his side with gleeful electro; ‘Arumba’ sounds like a donkey having a good time in an eighties club. The GF go for a rather more minimal tech house style, with uneasy vocal snippets and resonances slithering their way around the rattles and pulses.

The Golden Filter
End Of Times

Electronic duo The Golden Filter recorded their new EP End Of Times in their own studio in East London. The title suggests it has a rather an apocalyptic theme, however it’s about being with to the ones you’re closest to at times of stress, and feeling that love spread to others. 12” on Optimo Music.

Penelope Trappes
Penelope One

Inspired by Scott Walker and This Mortal Coil, Penelope Trappes rented a small studio in London and set about making an album that reflected the boldness of those artists. Mainly using just piano, voice and effects, Trappes has produced the sort of emotionally vulnerable music she describes as free, empowered and naked.

The Golden Filter
STILL // ALONE

Isolated synth-pop with lashings of coldwave and goth-pop. STILL // ALONE is rigidly divided into two halves over two vinyl LPs, separating the more club-orientated output from the home-listening stuff. The Golden Filter (a tight-knit duo) are proud to use predominantly vintage analogue equipment in their music making, and this record consequently has an authentic 80’s feel. 2LP on Optimo.

The Golden Filter
PS1103 EP

The Golden Filter make unique electronica, in part due to the fact that the duo come from opposite side of the globe: Penelope from Australia, Stephen from the USA. The duo make a deep, rich hypnotic sound with vocal phrases that pinball around their well designed tracks. PS1103 EP is The Golden Filter’s first recording for Optimo Music.

The Golden Filter / Morgan Hammer
Heavy Bastard EP

Two tracks each from The Golden Hammer and Morgan Hammer on this split EP from Scottish heroes Optimo Trax. The Heavy Bastard EP (the name combines each artist’s track titles: what serendipity!) contains material tried and tested on the dancefloor, but from generally under-released producers, so snap this up! Energy-fired club quality all round.
