1 - FACTICE FACTORY - LINES & PARALLELS - (LP) 
WAVE TENSION


After The White Days (2014) and !!NADA!! (2015) Factice Factory return with Lines & Parallels. This third album is to be seen as a natural evolution of the bands previous achievements, a certain form of continuity of the sound and particular atmosphere they have managed to establish, creating their own musical identity. The melancholy and gloominess of the first two albums is still present but has evolved, becoming rougher, sharper, with a certain form of urgency, like a summer storm approaching from the far outskirts of town. There is clearly a deeper focus to be heard on the use of guitars and bass in this new release. The songs are still very existential and influenced by the eighties and the typical Post-Punk touch. Still using French, German or English lyrics you can clearly identify two sides, two lines or parallels in this new opus,there is an electronic and more hypnotic side with the very N.D.W.-like ''Leuchtturm'', the minimal film noir tribute ''Audran'', the very eighties sounding ''Sway'' or the harsh industrial tainted ''Extinguisher''. The other so called line is to be heard in tracks such as the desperate and goosebumping''Defeat'', the somehow oriental sounding ''Hatch End'' or the melancholic end ballad ''The Weeping Willow''... These two parallel lines finally merge into one single and united soundpattern, a delight that will surely find its place in the ears of many dark music addicts.

2 - RADERKRAFT - DUST AND DEBRIS - (12") 
WAVE TENSION


Somewhere between minimal synth, electro and wave is the irresistible sound of Raderkraft, aka musician / producer Willem Stinissen from Amsterdam. As cold as it is catchy and hypnotic, armed with pulsating analog synths, staccato drum computer beats and sampled vocals, Raderkraft takes you into a dystopian past, present and future. His third 4-track EP called "Dust & Debris" treats global world problems such as the devastating impact of drug addictions; the future existence of our planet due to climate change; the global widespread destruction by nuclear war; and the fear for terrorist attacks. The title track "Dust and Debris" describes the 9/11 catastrophe and contains a chronological frightening news report from several media sources telling us what happened that day 20 years ago. With this EBM style track Raderkraft perfectly catches the incomprehension and fear that shocked the world.

3 - SUIR - STUDIO SESSION - (LP) 
WAVE TENSION


SUIR is a duo based in Cologne, Germany. Formed in 2016 when Denis Wanic (guitar and vocals) and Lucia Seiss (synths, guitar and bass) joined forces for their band project. In a constant interplay of guitars and synthesizers, supported by minimalistic and electronic drum rhythms and melancholic lyrics, SUIR produces a reverberated psychedelic post-punk defined by a dense, lynchesque sound. Especially their live shows are known for their cinematic, atmospheric music defined by complex sound walls and the hypnotic visualisation - like waking up from a dark and intense dream. Being locked down in their apartment/studio in Cologne during the Covid-19 crisis, not able to play live shows, they re-recorded a selection of tracks from their previous albums in a live rendition to capture the raw intense feeling of their live shows which they are dearly missing right now. The session also includes the previously unreleased track "Not Accustomed To Be Hurt"

TRACKLISTING: 01. Intro 02. Calamity 03. Warsaw 04. White Spheres 05. Gewalt 06. Den Of Thieves 07. Not Accustomed To Be Hurt (previously Unreleased)

4 - UNHAPPYBIRTHDAY - KRAKEN - (12") 
WAVE TENSION


unhappybirthday are from Hamburg, Germany and offer something very nice in their approach to minimalist synth pop/melodic post punk. They tap into a nice cross section of new wave and post punk touchstones for a sizable mix of danceable rhythms. Simple in structure but resonant in scope, the few songs on this record capture the perfect balance of sad and lonely catchiness that makes spending hours in a bedroom listening on repeat seem not only reasonable but necessary. Kraken 12" (originally released on tape in 2013) marks Wave Tension's first release and unhappybirthday's third vinyl after the rereleases of both their albums (originally on tape) by LebensStrasse Records & Kingfisher Bluez.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Fargo 02. Kraken 03. Himitsu 04. Centauri 05. Koma 06. Fluorid 07. Smileys

5 - VARIOUS - WE ARE ELECTRIC: GARY NUMAN REVISITED - (LP) 
WAVE TENSION


Reprint on blue vinyl!The electronic pioneer and founding father of synthpop, Gary Numan, celebrates his 40th anniversary as recording artist. During these 40 years, Numan's impact made itself felt; his dark, paranoid vision, theatrically icy alien persona, and clinical, robotic sound were echoed strongly in the work of many goth rock, wave and industrial artistsWave Tension Records invited 7 contemporary dark wave, gothic and dreampop artists to honour their inspirator with an exclusive tribute. The album opens with Agent Side Grinder's nostalgic analogue rendition of "I'm an Agent", followed by Ash Code's fresh sounding fast paced post-punk/dark wave version of "Down In The Park". Shad Shadows turn "Metal" into a whispering heated darkwave track. On the last track of side A, Box & The Twins create warm and dreamy soundscapes in their version of "Complex". SUIR opens side B with a hypnotic psychedelic slowed down art-punk version of "Cars". Synths Versus Me turns Numan's monster hit "Are Friends Electric?" into a fresh synthpop & EBM take with Art of Noise-esque vocals. The album's closing track is a gothic rock rendition of "My Name Is Ruin" by Swedish rockers Then Comes Silence, which encourages you to sing along

TRACKLISTING: 01. Agent Side Grinder - I'm An Agent 02. Ash Code - Down In The Park 03. Shad Shadows - Metal 04. Box & The Twins - Complex 05. Suir - Cars 06. Synths Versus Me - Are Friends Electric? 07. Then Comes Silence - My Name Is Ruin

6 - WIRES & LIGHTS - A CHASM HERE AND NOW - (LP) 
WAVE TENSION


"A Chasm Here And Now" is the critically acclaimed debut album of Justin Stephens' (ex-Passion Play) current band Wires & Lights, with which the Berlin based indie-pop/post-punk quartet redeemed everything they announced at earlier live shows and on the Pagan Love Songs Vol. 3 compilation (2014) with an early demo version of "Swimming". After a successful cd release two years ago, the album will now finally be released on vinyl in a limited edition (300 copies) gatefold double LP, complete with four bonus tracks (one unreleased track and three remixes by Ash Code, The Foreign Resort and Traitrs).Right from the off, the brilliant opener "Drive" leaves nothing to be desired in terms of thrilling, hymnic danceability. A grandiosely updated "Swimming" sustains the urgent sense of drive unconventionally, before "Anyone", one of the most gripping and sweeping mid-tempo ballads of recent years, changes down a gear. And that was just the beginning.Every time you think you've grasped the band musically, they immediately prove you wrong with the next track, e.g. with "Dead To Us", the calmest and most introspective track according to its loss subject, which stands out for a beautiful ending that develops without haste. If youre still in any doubt, listen to the conclusion of the album: "Going, Going, Gone" - this masterfully polished gem of a song, with its New Model Army-like bubbling structure, its genetic connection with Passion Play's "Running On Empty" and its epic deliverance will be a classic for all time that everyone always wants to hear.
