CCCANDY - Lonesome Berlin (Avant Records 2010)
AVANT RECORDS: Lonesome Berlin is the long time coming first LP from this German guy solo project CCCANDY. After the debut 7'' on Eat! and the tape on Neue Stra?en, we now have a proper full-length featuring twelve dark minimal synth pop songs. This is the sounds of the old Europe during the Eighties, when the Berlin Wall was still real: cold and catchy at once, minimal yet groovy. Greyscale bedroom electronics. Fans of early synth stuff such as The Normal, R.L. Crutchfield's Dark Day, French cold wave bands (Charles de Goal,Trop Tard, Asylum Party) as well as of FactoryMen and Nice Face, take note!
