We have a new CD in from lovely French label Monopsone by those Swiss
folks Velma. I've heard a couple of Velma albums before and to me
this sounds more accessible than the rest. This is really pleasing on my ears
and it's a shame that the buzz band singles will outsell it 20 to 1 but such is
the way with music. Musically it's somewhere between Tarwater and Stereolab
I thought (Stereolab with the vocals and Tarwater with the music).
Possibly a bit like a more avant-garde/ electronic Blonde Redhead. Well
worth checking out!
