Various Artists: Monika Barchen Songs For Bruno Knut & Tom (Monika) A fifteen track compilation from Gudrun Gut's pop/electronica imprint that opens with a glacial, gamelan like, serial grid from To Rococo Rot's Robert Lippock. This well curated compilation, moves steadily through some highly melodic guitar led pop vocalisations with synthetic drum machine backing and some wildly contrasting approaches to the pop song. A case in point being the schaffel beat, grunge/glam and submerged vocals of Chica & The Folder's contribution. Elsewhere, Masha Qrella covers a Depeche Mode cut, while Max Punktezahl does a version of Masha Qrella- all acoustic strum and synthetic backdrop sans vocals. Gudrun's own effort is like a German oompa style stomp with crackly samples and Kompakt like attitude. Overall, a rather good little overview with further contributions from Quarks and Barbara Morgenstern (who totally melts me with her tones) amongst some of the lesser knowns. Recommended.
