|Info:|| There’s a new shine upon
Chaos’ dark beauty. On its 31st anniversary remaster, the
ethereal gothic ambience of Black Tape For A Blue Girl’s 1991
fourth album swims in a sea of memory, a heart filled with pain and
despondent hope. These 12 existential tales inhabit a chaotic realm of
reflection, fear and desire set upon dense electronics confronting
pained emotions. Oscar Herrera’s intense, searing vocals and
Julianna Town’s sensitive siren song are strongly
complemented by Vicki Richards’ sinewy violin. Throughout it
all, songwriter and band leader Sam Rosenthal stirs up a brooding
undertone of electronics, expressing the stages of desire and despair.
Remastered by Martin Bowes of Attrition.
What has been said about A Chaos of Desire?
SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE: Black Tape For A Blue Girl is a treasure of a band. Their sound is lush, full and beautiful, which is not to say wimpy. This is beauty with an edge, perhaps even a slightly desperate air. Richards supplies sensuous violin lines. Recommended.
BSIDE MAGAZINE: This is more of that unexplainable type of lacy textured, swaying music. It’s actually sort of hallucinatory, the way things add and subtract and slowly swell… like the ocean. A CD for people who listen to Dead Can Dance and see mystical visions. This makes the Cocteau Twins sound upbeat with more of an emotional depth, more of a real despondency.
OPUS: The twelve songs on A Chaos of Desire move from dark explorations of love and heartache (which often feature Hererra’s melodramatic vocals) to softer, more ambient pieces that blend Rosenthal’s synths with fragile string arrangements (e.g., “Beneath the Icy Floe,” “Of These Reminders”). As you might imagine, I prefer the latter, as they provide a perfect example of Projekt’s ‘vintage’ darkwave sound.
THE GAVIN REPORT: Moody songs of tragic beauty. The music is often moody and foreboding, soaring to incredible tonal levels. The vocals are clear and sparse, laden with emotion and intrigue. Certain to satisfy the neo-classical aficionado.
