Pia Fraus - After Summer (CD, Seksound, Progressive pop), Ten Remixes of Yenissey (CD, Seksound, Progressive pop)
The folks at Estonia's Seksound label are ending the year on a high note...releasing not one but two new full-length CDs from Pia Fraus
as well as a vinyl 7" (more about that later).
After Summer is the new album proper that features ten cool hummable tracks.
For the uninitiated, the folks in Pia Fraus
create slightly atmospheric modern pop that sounds something like a cross between The Cocteau Twins and Stereolab.
One one side is Pia Fraus
with the tune "Mute the Birds" (great title, that one...) and on the flipside is Ulrich Schnauss with "Ships Will Sail.
Great artwork on the picture sleeve.
As always, anything by Pia Fraus
is a top pick here in babysueland... (Rating: 5+++)
