LILI Z. : “MA SOLITUDE ET MOI” 10”EP….
After Ms. LILI ZELLER
showed herself to be a frenchwoman of style and taste with her URINALS
cover + 2 great originals 45 a few years back, she’s come back with eight excellent 1998-2001 four-track, living room recordings in the now-quaint “ten inch vinyl” format. Often electronically manipulated and twisted into shapes that vaguely resemble seam-bursting garage punk, the numbers’ (all originals
) charms lie in their unpredictability. Sometimes it’s a little late 70s Euro femme-voxed punk rock (like X-RAY SPEX
or ESSENTIAL LOGIC
without the horns), sometimes it’s metronome-like robotcore a la METAL URBAIN
. Sometimes it’s experimental tooling around, sometimes you swear you’re hearing a Gallic RAMONES
hybrid (“I Wanna Make Noise”). Sometimes it’s in French, sometimes it’s English and sometimes it’s even a little German for that nice pan-NATO feel. Mostly it’s recorded with the needle buried very, very deeply to the right. I think you’ll like it! Click here
