Here’s a new unique release on Slimer Records from Italian group Alberto Almas. Era miseria is pressed on 10″ with each side off-centre, what a great idea. The group released an album on Slimer last year, which doesn’t seem to be available online in its entirety but from what I heard L’amor te seems to be full of nicely produced coldwave. “2010” which is the a-side of the new single, has a great 80s new wave feel and comes with a beautiful video. The b-side which is titleless, or called “?” features moody synthesizer chords and a rather sentimental sounding lyric in Italian. Perhaps a bit too pop to appear on Avant! but nevertheless a great single.
