And Then She Heard the Echo of the Big Bang

by Sylvarluxe

Experimental cerebral art pop-with-a-wink. Tuetonic nightclub reverie; decadent deconstruction with cinematic string indulgences pitted against shards of electric guitar, roaming funk bass, and a chanteuse in a bachelor pad.
Genre: Pop: Baroque Pop

Album Notes
With a mannequin in a gas mask we’re already informed that Sylvarluxe has left the night life of their first disc “Viva” and entered a more volatile aggressive arena. Sylvarluxe’s second disc is a potent blend of art pop experimentation and highly developed controlled danceable chaos. An overt sexuality always informs Sylvarluxe music but on this outing modern combustible politics mixes with the expressionist libidinous lyrics. The disc opens with caterwauling guitars and cacophonous drums as if Keith Levine of PIL paired up with Keith Moon on drums. At times the disc sounds like an updated soundtrack to Kubrick’s “2001 A Space Odyssey” and other times like a cocktail party gone horribly wrong. A sense of loss and regret pervades “And Then She Heard The Echo Of The Big Bang” and though the disc ends with resignation it does so in a stately grand manner.
