MODERN ART Oriental Towers LP
14,99 € inc. tax
Another entry from the darkly enchanting minimal synth-pop and psych-tinged world of The Modern Art. 

"Now this is my kind of icy, desolate lo-fi music. A lot of 80's music that I listen to nowadays seems to predict the coming of vaporwave & hypnagogic pop 25+ years later, and this album is no different, even if it's only really predicting the bleaker aspects of the latter. Still, this stuff is occasionally very pretty ('Stars')... There's plenty of diversity on a track-for-track basis: compare the dreaminess built out of layered acoustic guitars on 'Beautiful Truth' to the more energetic and mechanical 'Little Ballerina.' Or just compare any other track to the untitled closer, which is basically ambient guitar + some echoed sample hovering off in the distance."

"Arriving in the wake of inspirational releases from Joy Division, Cabaret Voltaire, Clock DVA and Throbbing Gristle, Modern Art... pinched those templates into a range of nervy, minimalist styles porous to influence and defined by the moody character of Gary Ramons vocals and his feel for expressive, evocative melody."

- Boomkat

Formed by Ramon in the early 1980's, Modern Art released two albums on vinyl, and a significant amount of impossible-to-find cassettes. Some of this material  was compiled in a highly regarded 3-LP (sold out) box set, made in 2013 by Vinyl on Demand. This remastered reissue of "Oriental Towers," their second cassette album, originally released in 1983, also includes five previously unissued tracks from that session—two of which are not on our recent LP reissue. On this album you will find examples of what was going on in England during the pinnacle of the post-punk scene—an inspired time that encouraged young musicians to develop music in their own home studios, a D.I.Y. approach that was radical at the time and which still resonates.
