Matthias Springer – Music Sounds Better Than War
Well, most things sound better than war. But this is Matthias Springer’s dub techno offering on the Ukraine situation, with the three tracker including Moscow, Kyiv and Sevastopol.
There’s a bit of Holst’s Planet Suite about it, with opener Moscow taking the place of Mars (God of War) in a track full of crude bass and dystopia. Kyiv is a lighter, swirling track. Perhaps reflecting its place as a seaside playground (alongside it’s darker military past), Sevastopol has the most melody and joy. An ambitious EP.
