Sui Generis Umbra: Coma

Poland's own Sui Generis Umbra make the most out of a mix of meshable influences and implements; among the more prominent of these, Diamanda Galas, Cradle of Filth's symphonic moments, and maybe latter-day Christian Death jamming with Brecht and Weill in their techno period.

A dark, galactic soup of goth-industrial-electro beats, blips and sine waves, witchy caterwhauls, synthesized mayhem and black metal drumming, Coma stokes its dreamlife with 11 compositions presumably inspired by Virginia Woolf's bold avant-garde novel, The Waves.

Overall, it's catchy, even bewitching stuff, sending out feelers towards a day when instead of Britney Spears, we'll hear enchantments muttered in Polish over a rolling bed of pistons. (Ingenious even; so what's next, James Joyce's Finnegan's Wake as a club mix?)
