Sugarconnection – “Plays Alien Cakes” – [No Man’s Land]
“Songlines, noisetales, dreamscapes”–so reads the liner notes describing this uniquely delightful release from Anna Homler, Frank Schulte, and Axel Otto, a.k.a. Sugarconnection. Vocals, toy instruments, found objects, samples, electronics, zither, tapes, records, and other fascinating sound makers pepper the 20 songs on this CD. The bells and metals and wood are wait remain in my mind, however. Take a listen and see for yourself how this is ahead of its time in electronic experimentation.
