Repress 12″ of this CULT Release with Original Sleeve, NEW cheaper Price, NEW 140g Vinyl Pressing Tracklist A1. Jardim Zoológico B1. Tao Shortinfo: Strangelove Music isdelighted to present its first project, two songs from Lena d’Água, one of Portugal’s great musical acts of the early 1980’s. Combining a siren presence and soaringvocalsalong side songwriter Luis Fonseca and backing band Atlântida, they released a series of records that wove through the avante-pop sensibilities of the time.Collected here are two of their more leftfield moments; ‘Jardim Zoológico’ is a beguiling mix of new wave, post punk and dub into a short sharp pop format, impossible to properly categorize, the dynamic composition sounding as fresh now as it did 35years ago. On the flipside, the calmer ‘Tao’ takes Fonseca’s keyboards towards more eastern territory, conjuring up a dreamy synthesized new age vibe. Lena’s beautiful fado hued notes hang poignantly across bothsongs. Beautifully re-mastered by reissue specialist Peter Beckmann Vital Sales Points: - Debuted on Tim Sweeney’s Beats in Space radio show & tastemakers Stamp the Wax and Dream Chimney, test pressing distributed among the Balearic mafia, Moonboots/ Phil Mison, Hunee etc -Support from key tastemaker retailers including Redlight Records, Growing Bin, Organic Japan, Piccadilly etc
