MARTIN REV - Strangeworld LP

Add to Wishlist
Highly recommended.

Martin Rev's fifth solo album was originally released in 2000 on Puu, a Finnish imprint belonging to Tommi Grönlund and Mika Vainio's Sähkö Recordings. Strangeworld started where 1996's See Me Ridin' left off.

Melodic passages dissolved into a thicket of fragments and set pieces, coalescing in a celestial shimmer between rhythm loops and Rev's voice. Martin Rev's condensed teenage memories of days when young hearts were breaking to the sound of doo-wop melodies on the transistor radio. There are still flashes of contemporary music and traces of dance elements, but Rev maintains these entered his musical spectrum subconsciously.

Twenty years have passed since Strangeworld was first released, but the world it revealed remains as strange and enigmatic as ever.
