TROUBLE vs GLUE
NO043 - LP
Edition of 200
Release date: 18th JUNE 2016
feat. David Lemoine (Cheveu)
TvsG is a duo:
as the name says, we can picture one of 'em as the Trouble and the other as the Glue, in a never ending fight made of synths, guitar, drums and wicked voices.
After their debut album on the german label Urquinaona ("Zum Teufel" LP) and a song on the (in)famous Borgata Boredom - Music And Noises From Roma Est - LP, they released their second album "Die Trauerweide" (eng. weeping willow) in June 2013 on NO=FI Recordings.
After a 2 years hiatus, filled with tours here and there, they finally strike back with a new LP called "This Age" , released again on the Roma Est fav Label!
8 killer tracks on black vinyl, recorded between 2014 and 2015 by V.Fisik at Hombrelobo Studio (Roma), featuring Davide Lemoine from Cheveu (voice on "Despite) and Cascao from Cascao and Lady Maru (synth and voice on "Combination"), packed with an amazing artwork made by the italian artist MP5. It comes in a limited edition of 200 copies.
They might be two but they sound like a six pieces band! Groove drumming and percussions, killer synths and guitars, female/male schizo voices combined with a dadaist pop attitude into a mix of no-wave, weird punk and hypnotic synth atmospheres.
At times TvsG sound like the Residents with a punk drummer, in others like a weird japanese electronic pop band from the '80s, while some other tracks bring us back to the no-wave of Lizzy Mercier Descloux and DNA.
But these are only some analogies, because they've absolutely got their own personal and original sound.
Check them out and enjoy!
