12inch / Mannquin Records / 2013
Mannequin Records is simply elated to present the debut 12'' EP from
Phantom Love, a mysterious Kosmische act from Southern Europe.
Emerging from the majestic and fiercely sun-trapped lands of the Old
Continent, Phantom Love takes you along a dazing journey through a
spectral yet dreamy haze of spacey psychedelia.
Drawing inspiration and guidance from the ever-revered mitt European
and Mediterranean tradition of Kraut and Cosmic rock, Phantom
Lovemanages to encapsulate and transcend the formulas normally
associated with these genres.
A retro-futuristic feast for the ears, a production that is equally
analogue and digital, haunting and exotic, Phantom Love’s debut
is a sonic sculpture of obsessive arpeggios and reverb-drenched
Against this arcane melodic canvas, tribal and shape-shifting drums
structures fight and discipline the liquid interplay and
superimposition of cymbals and cowbells delays.
*Limited Edition of 300 copies with artwork by Giandomenico Carpentieri.
Strongly recommended to fans of Brian Eno, Klaus Schulze, John
Carpenter, Carter Tutti, Stellar Om Source, Harald Grosskopf, Tangerine
Dream, Beak, Zombie Zombie.
