Review by Rivertree
3 stars SOUNDS OF NEW SOMA are a German duo consisting of Alexander Djelassi and Dirk Raupach. Both are handling nearly all the basic instruments, as there are guitar, bass ... and the complete synthesizer stuff of course. Drums however do not play a role here, at least not on this recordings, since they are underway on atmospheric, dreamy and transcendental paths most likely. Furthermore the SOUNDS OF NEW SOMA members are open-minded enough to cooperate with diverse other musicians. Thus it was a real surprise for me when I recently discovered that they have recorded a split album in collaboration with the Israelian formation Backnee Horn.

Tonzonen Records have released 'Beyond The Acid Dream' in 2014 on vinyl and compact disc format. Four songs are given, easily proportioned on both sides, which feature typical cosmic sounds, stylistically enclosing progressive electronics in the majority, as well as some kraut and space. The album's distinctiveness is manifested through the saxophone attendance by Andreas Lessenich for example, who adds a jazzy note to some songs. Mysterious recitatives are another special contribution. The very inspired Traumfänger convinces me much, during ten minutes they are preparing a fantastic ambiance.

This album, mastererd by Ex-Grobschnitt member Eroc by the way, needs some rounds. In the first instance I could not accept the saxophone for example, the instrument sounded misplaced somehow. But in the meanwhile I had to revert, it's clear that this exactly represents the difference though, the uniqueness within the sound ... so much the more then seems to force the question, why Andreas is not listed as a full member. Anyway, SOUNDS OF NEW SOMA is a promising new project, Alexander and Dirk are offering a lot of inspiration and innovation. So what do you think about a joint venture with Camera next? We will see ...
