Review

Special remarks : Remastered LP with insert & new liner notes (full size art insert+notes) Follow up to the labels previous release -NZ 80s compilation ‘Kiwi Animals’ Syguiria Lady is the first full reissue album for Strangelove. For fans of current Japanese music revival Tracklist: 1. Amitoung Ashyljoung 2. Vimana Beam 3. Faros Faras Island 4. Soma Yana 5. Maya Candra 6. Samsara 7. Polaris Line 8. Chariot Of Palace Short info: Strangelove is proud to present the first ever reissue of ‘Syguira Lady’, an eerie and absorbing ride through the rich imagination of enigmatic Osaka group Viola Renea. While riding the current interest in Japanese music, the album remains an anomaly to much of the local music of the time. Juxtaposing ancient/modern sources of sonic inspiration, North England’s new musical movements collide with Eastern European folk rhythms, while oriental scales slide amongst wavey-electronic instrumentation. The resultant musical dreamscapes sought to conjure themes of noir & seduction, recurrent in the period’s techno-pop. Kuki Imamura described the album as the sound of unknown memories with aural visions & strange musical loves coalescing around a femme fatale; ‘Syguirian Lady’
