Murena Murena - Take Care Of Me [Cut Surface 033]

Released in May 2k21 via Vienna's Cut Surface imprint is "Take Care Of Me", the latest eleven track album outing by Munich-based artist Daniel Murena a.k.a. Murena Murena who's in for taking the listener on a roughly 40 minutes spanning journey into his very own musical universe, from the distorted, haunted and somehow DigiDancehall / Industrial Dancehall - Al Haca Soundsystem! Razor X Productions! - infused rhythm signatures fused with the greyscale aesthetics of acts like Tristesse Contemporaine in the raw opener "Turn Your Back On Gold" to the haunted PostPunk-sequences of "Fight Rope" which fascinatingly come with both an Industrial- and HipHop edge at the same time whilst "Dark Twine" touches base with twisted SynthPop and DeltaBlues if one can imagine a combination of Rangleklods, Pink Floyd and drunk Depeche Mode ca. "Delta Machine". Furthermore "Overvoice" takes greyscale Alternative / Leftfield Pop to a new, nightly and inward-looking level, "Watch The Sphinx" gets deep into highly agitated Industrial PunkRock whereas "Look Now" weighs in muscular ElectroPunk x ElectroRock for moshpits of death, "Medea Madre" presents more of a sacred, score'esque atmosphere and the concluding "Heart Game" waves goodbye in a well psychedelic, brooding Post-DeltaBlues manner just to name a few. Recommended!
