AGF/Delay - Symptoms (Bpitch Control)

AGF aka Antye Greie teams up with Sasu Ripatti, perhaps better known as Vladislav Delay or Luomo, for the couple’s second album as a musical duo. It is a dark yet riotous affair, where clattering machinery meets sour instrumentation and earnest vocals. The ‘song’ element adds an intriguing layer to this album, and on most occasions, the odd shaped grooves and piercing vocal contributions mix together like ingredients in a well prepared cocktail. Highs include the simply gorgeous Connection, a disturbing paean to physical attraction named Most Beautiful and the bassy Second Life. Dark electronic moodiness meets memorable lyricism on this stimulating album from a cool musical couple.
