Song of the Day - Feb 03, 2005
Despite the title of my song of the day "Asphyxia," I have recovered from my previous day. For those of you who have no idea what I am talking about, see the playlist "Anger Management." Alu has a haunting sound, the best way to describe her is as a mixture of Luna and Air, but with beautiful vocals that remind me of Annie Lennox. "Asphyxia" is the standout track on Infomercial Gasmask. The bizarre lyrics combined with the aural soundscape, as painted by Alu, bring to mind a vision of a strange apocalyptic wasteland. Her otherwordly vocals are addictive. I want to inhabit her world, even if its a wasteland. As Alu says, "the infomercial gasmask will save us." Save me. Click here to listen.
