Hey Mother Death 

Hey Mother Death EP (independent)


Not only does cassette tape live, it has artistic cachet. At least it does for French actress/writer Laurence Strelka and Haligonian globetrotter Denma Peisinger. Their collaboration was "recorded spontaneously" and they kept mostly first takes. What lifts it above the average art school sound project is Strelka's Parisian accent, which makes everything sexy, even hell. You've got blood-stained angels, lightning scaring the birds and it generates a tingle. Mostly it's in French, with straining strings, random piano, minimalist beat and the angriest mellotron you ever heard. It's like the Book of Revelations narrated by Catherine Deneuve.
