vive la void is the new solo project of sanae yamada, co-founder and keyboard player of moon duo. yamada wrote and recorded the self-titled debut album over roughly a two-year period, during windows of downtime in moon duo’s substantial touring and recording schedule. the dense, shape-shifting atmospheres of the seven songs grew out of late-night basement experiments in the layering of synthesizer tracks, a process that also led to meditations on the changeable nature of memory and perception. the result is an undulating blend of ethereal swirl, low end thrumming, and electric crackle, buoyed by yamada’s understated but captivating vocal melodies and her striking lyrics.

forma (mark dwinell, sophie lam, & george bennett) emerged on the nyc minimal synth scene in 2010 with a singular vision of cosmic krautrock for a new age. on their eponymous debut lp, the brooklyn-based electronics trio merges the melodic flow and primitive rhythms of their motorik predecessors with the hypnotic drones of minimalism, creating an intricate work both addicting and rewarding with repeat listens. like many of the lp s eleven tracks, the churning and relentless forma237b draws its energy from a precarious equilibrium between structural rigidity and free improvisation, a dynamic at the heart of forma’s universe. with lush, distant soundscapes as interludes between these peaks, forma’s inaugural full-length is a harmonious and expansive expression of the enduring power of kosmische musik.
