Review: VARIOUS - I can't give you the life you want (Blackest Ever Black, 2015)


Black Tape For A Blue Girl, Ivo Watts-Russel, Projekt Records, el sello Guernica, la 4AD, Astralwerks son entidades que marcaron a fuego a muchos melómanos en jornadas noventeras y ochenteras. Kiran Sande fue uno de ellos. Su ardor lo llevaría a ejercer el oficio de crítico musical para finalmente fundar un sello que refleje sus pasiones sónicas. Eso es Blackest Ever Black, label iniciado el 2010 con base en Londres. "I can´t give you the live you want" muestra algunos de los artistas que conforman su catálogo en ocasión de su quinto aniversario el 2015.

Dark ambient ala Pieter Nooten con Michael Brook, techno dub en plan Vladislav Delay meets This Mortal Coil meets Throbbing Gristle y más electrónica súper estimulante es lo que encontramos a cada paso de los 11 tracks que conforman este manifiesto. Gente que creció escuchando los discos indicados -si estás acá sabes cuáles son- resistiéndose al acoso de la mediocre mass media  y sumergiéndose en fiestas y conciertos ad hoc. Títulos como "Acceptance is Reality" (Dalhous), "Singleminded" (Secret Boyfriend) o "I woke up and the storm was over" (Tropic of Cancer) dejan ver una estética rayana en el nihilismo y enajenación de corrientes como el post punk y el industrial. Las músicas de este compilado ciertamente beben de esos ísmos pero no se quedan en la copia xerox como hacen miles. Reciben de aquellas radiaciones y las modifican con sus propias semillas. 

Otra señal a remarcar hoy que estamos en los días de #MeToo es la presencia femenina. Desde la guapísima Carla dal Forno -quien introduce sus talentos en los combos Tarcar y Tarquin Manek- a capas como Veronica Vasicka de 500 Stamps y Camella Lobo de Tropic of Cancer. ¿Formarán parte ellas de la legión de mujeres acosadas y violentadas por sus pares machos de siempre? Ciertamente es algo que en la escena musical indie se huele con frecuencia.

"No puedo darte la vida que deseas" es ya un clásico de la escena avantgarde. En tiempos de gentrificación y pasteurización de las otroras vanguardias sienta bien conocer ARTISTAS y no payasos en plan "soy cool arty indie". Sin duda recoge la posta de tótems como "Heavenly Voices", "Lonely is an eyesore" o "50 years of sunshine". 

Solo existe versión vinílica LP y puedes adquirirla vía Blackest Ever Black (o discogs). Joya de la vida.

Black Tape For A Blue Girl, Ivo Watts-Russel, Projekt Records, Guernica label, 4AD, Astralwerks are entities that set fire to many music lovers in 90s and 80s. Kiran Sande was one of them. His ardor would lead him to exercise the office of music critic to finally start a label that reflects his sonic passions. That's Blackest Ever Black, label started in 2010 based in London. "I can't give you the life you want" shows some of the artists that make up its catalog on the occasion of its fifth anniversary in 2015.

Dark ambient ala Pieter Nooten with Michael Brook, techno dub in vein Vladislav Delay meets This Mortal Coil meets Throbbing Gristle and more super stimulating electronica is what we find at each step of the 11 tracks that make up this manifesto. People who grew up listening to the indicated discs -if you're here, you know what they are- resisting the harassment of mediocre mass media and immersing themselves in ad hoc parties and concerts. Titles like "Acceptance is Reality" (Dalhous), "Singleminded" (Secret Boyfriend) or "I woke up and the storm was over" (Tropic of Cancer) show an aesthetic bordering on nihilism and alienation of currents like post punk and industrial. The music of this compilation certainly drink from those isms but they don't fall in the xerox copy like thousands do. They receive from those radiations and modify them with their own seeds.

Another sign to highlight today that we are in the days of #MeToo is the female presence. From the beautiful Carla dal Forno -who introduces her talents in Tarcar and Tarquin Manek combos- to capes like Veronica Vasicka of 500 Stamps and Camella Lobo of Tropic of Cancer. Will they be part of the legion of women harassed and violated by their male counterparts? It's certainly something that is often smelled in the indie music scene.

"I can't give you the life you want" is already a classic of the avantgarde scene. In times of gentrification and pasteurization of formerly vanguards it feels good to know ARTISTS and not clowns in mode "I'm cool indie hipster". With no doubt pick up the post of totems like "Heavenly Voices", "Lonely is an eyesore" or "50 years of sunshine". 


There is only LP vinyl version and you can buy it via Blackest Ever Black (or discogs). Jewel of life.
