Haven't you always wondered what an album inspired by Mars would sound like? Well, Spain's Malaventura may have the answer. They are releasing a 26 minutes journey of electronics beats and pads, analogs drums and basses, noises and crashes, quiets and louds ambients inspired by and called Mars. Listen it and drawn into your mind the lowell’s canals or chat with Helene Smith and his martians friends. Take a journey through the Cydonia region and be careful in the Laestrygon area.

The Peel Back: Pigface Washingmachine Mouth (Invisible Records, April 1993)I always wanted to understand industrial music, but I never quite did. I was always more into the electronic aspects of the music, and only appreciated remixes or songs with a abstract dance beat. So it would make sense that the only Pigface album I ever owned was the remix ep Washingmachine Mouth. I bought it because (at the time) I thought it would be cool to own a Pigface album, but I enjoyed every inch of that tape. From ambient chopped up spoken word to club feel of "Satan on the Inside Looking In" to post punk of "Cuting Face". It may not be their traditional sound, but it is now what I think of when I hear the name Pigface.
