Various Artists – 3 Years Comfortzone Crystalized (Comfortzone)


A fuck dance let´s art compilation, a finger nail dragged across the blackboard that scratches your back hard in just the right place (and leaves a mark that stings later). Gazing back over that back´s left (of course) shoulder with 36 months´ hindsight, label head and sonic seamstress chra (Christina Nemec) must have noted contendedly that she had wired together a mesh of unimpeachably nose-thumbing, mind-feeding song and electronica. This celebration compilation includes strange pop (Crazy Bitch in a Cave), unheard of processes (chra´s own “Snow Turns Black”), highly heard-of but no less welcome processes (Mika Vainio) and an anthem you can absolutely dance to, “Die Letzte Schlacht” by Kumbia Queers. Since then, chra and a grand coalition have also released a compilation in support of Pussy Riot: Play ´em back-to-back.
