Jazz-electric
« on: January 13, 2011, 07:54:49 AM »
'Jazz-electric' by Formbank (Pete Kelly) and Achromus (Michael Stringer)

Due to be released in the near future.
Difficult to categorise and describe, a fusion of hyper-electronica with occasional ambient lull. Hints of Japan, Sylvian and Peter Gabriel pervade throughout. Pete Kelly's real and fake guitar parts combine with Michael Stringer's melodic sensibilities to make for an intriguing, sometimes oblique listen.

Pete - I really enjoyed listening to this album - very much a different direction than we're used to with Igneous Flame - and that's a very, very cool thing!

You're description of hint of Japan, Sylvian, Gabriel is a good way of putting it.
