Martin Rev - Stigmata LP
Label: Blast First Petite
Martin Rev, the avant keyboard half of NYC punk pioneers Suicide, releases a solo album on the Blast First Petite label. Stigmata was recorded in New York City and features 14 tracks that heave with glitched-out, digitally-distorted, synthetic orchestral sounds – quite unlike anything he has released before. A timely "flash-forward" of an album, it has already been described as "genius" by Spiritualized main man, Jason Pierce, and continues Rev's now four decades of eclectic electronic musicianship.
