CHOON OF THE DAY: "ARIADNA" [Aриадна] - Kedr Livanskiy
The incomparable Kedr Livanskiy returns with an atmospheric electronic ode to the Greek goddess Ariadne with the first single taken from her upcoming LP "Ariadna", out 8th Sept via 2MR. As Ariadne is mostly associated with mazes and labyrinths because of her involvement in the myths of the Minotaur and Theseus, the track is, aptly enough, a labyrinthine trip into cold synthesisers, eerie electronica, lo-fi beats, echoing vocals and witch house. It's like a collaboration between Crystal Castles and Lisa Gerrard from Dead Can Dance. A whole wall of electronic sounds which confirms the Russian artist as one of the most uncompromising and unique musicians on the continent. Rich and dreamy!
Pre-order your copy of "Ariadna" on vinyl, cassette or digitally on Kedr Livanskiy's bandcamp.
