Dead Souls with Soviet Soviet - An Interview

Diretamente da Itália o combo post punk noise Soviet Soviet já um dos prediletos há tempos no TBTCI prepara seu primeiro album que em breve vira aterrorizar o mundo.

Esquizofrenia a servico da cold wave, Alessandro, Andre e Alessandro, não há como ficar ileso a catarse da música do Soviet Soviet, dissonâncias gélidas e em ritmo insano, os caras pegam o pós punk e em riffs tensos e repetitivos certamente agradariam ao mestre Curtis. 

Lembro claramente a primeira vez que ouvi o Soviet Soviet, cortesia do chapa Al Schenkel e foi tipicamente um soco na cara.

E agora chegou a vez dos caras ilustrarem em grande estilo as páginas do TBTCI.

Mas um aviso, esse debute promete encabecar as listas mais iniciadas de melhores do ano, vai por mim.
