DANTESSE LYON-STRUCTURE DES NUANCES, TAPE, 1982, GERMANY



Musically remote from their more antic Neue Deutsche Welle peers, Dantesse Lyon's distant, melancholic and weirdly opaque approach to minimal synthy-ness (sometimes like listening to instrumental bits of Tubeway Army on speakers soaked in maple syrup) renders even their more driving moments wooly and amorphous. Something unexpectedly lovely emerges from these miasmic musical conditions (which are partly intentional and partly pure technical limitation) that are strangely suggestive of the gorgeously milky post-Eno-isms of current electronica merchants Freescha .

this came out on Wartungsfrei, a tape label from the German country "Saarland". The main actor Walter Mitty also ran a fanzine "Hinterland" what is now called "Hinternet": www.hinternet.de ;)

This is amazing stuff, brooding and melancholic, sometimes proto-industrial. Side B, however, seems to have problems around the 9:20 mark--or is this digital stuttering intentional?
