Unemployment Disco Line
Artist: Modern Ruin
Format: Vinyl

More Info:

'With an Arturo Micro brute synthesizer put through psychedelic effects, Modern Ruin's keeps the flame of Andrew Weatherall and Suicide burning through times of isolation and disarray. This Synth Wave/New Wave experience of an album, released on LP on Hoga Nord Rekords, sums up 2020 with it's dark and cold sound. The title speaks for itself: 'Unemployment Disco Line' reflects the desperation in the sound and the reverb-drenched vocals in the back of the soundscape comes from deep within the Covid hole. Sick, fed up and restless! Drawing influences from masters like the legends above, Rowland S. Howard, Johan Balance + Peter Christopherson et cetera, this debut album by Modern Ruin's sums up four decades of underground club music and no matter how long this pandemic goes on we are in 'Nothing Blues' until the dance floors open again.
