Musika 77 is getting the royal treatment. The band’s new record is being released simultaneously in Italy (Mi Amante), England (Stereo Test Kit) and Sweden. I guess that’s peanuts to Justin Timberlake or Madonna but for an artist that’s a cross between Antony, Robert Smith and Morrissey that’s a pretty wide release.
This is music for the theater; it’s lush, thematic and a little contrived. The emotional aspect of the songs, from their upcoming full length debut Brave You Free May, is most evident in “Mountain Rhine Ball”.
