An Gella – Når skønhed og brutalitet smelter sammen

Kritik November 2 2017 An Gella Press Pic 2

Af Emil Grarup

Det er svært at benægte Aske Zidores musikalske alsidighed. Den København-baserede producer, komponist og musiker har været involveret i et væld af projekter fra alle ender af spektret: Fra den for længst hedengange powerpop-kvintet Oh No Ono over soloprojektet Andrea Welz, psych-bandet Gooms, det eksperimenterende Hong Kong Ladyboys og til soundtrack-projektet Breaker of Horses med Jannis Makrigiannis fra Choir of Young Believers på vokal. Igangsat nu er soloprojektet An Gella. Zidore har med Villads Klint (Minais B, Khalil) grundlagt pladeselskabet Anyines og det er dette selskab, der nu er aktuelt med An Gellas fuldlængdedebut ved navn “Perma”, som udkommer i morgen d. 3 november.

Yen Towers is the solo-output of Copenhagen-based guitarist and producer Simon Formann from Lower, Age Coin and cult band Girlseeker – all of them are (or were) revolving around the diy-venue Mayhem.

His recent 12-inch “Bidders Must Justify Their Price” is his most accomplished work yet (read our review here, in Danish). Actually it is his first vinyl release as Yen Towers, but the gritty techno-orientered sounds is a continuation of his work in Age Coin – and basically also from now defunct punkband Lower, where he was a co-producer and important part in constructing the soundscape in depth.
