The very fibers of “Powerless” are just soaked in misery of the most pedestrian kind. This isn’t misery you can tap into and feel – whilst this release does try hard, the emotional content seems somewhat lacking, or hard to connect with.
2010 was a busy and interesting year for French cyberpunk band Chrysalide and, with a new album “Don’t Be Scared, It’s About Life” coming out soon (and a tour to go with that) Syco, Arco and Amnesy won’t be slowing down anytime soon. We got the chance to talk to Syco and Arco about their music projects, Audiotrauma, life on tour, politics and just how people react to their Pink Floyd cover…
“Audiomedikation” is one of those albums that is deceiving at first due to its slow start, but it gets heavier, the rhythms more interesting and the album really does flow amazingly well.
This is an album that needs to be heard as an album. The way the tracks work together, it would be hard to separate them and it has an almost Kraftwerk-like sound to it. There’s also resemblance to early Future Sound of London and even some Sven Väth throughout the entire album.

Charming is the first word that comes to mind when it comes to describing Tokyo Morose’s “Specific Ocean”. This is stripped down electronica with massive pop sensibilities. It’s intelligent pop music, full of charm and character that you can’t help but fall in love with.
