we are DEATH IN ROME. and we play neofolk. on this 7" we present cover versions of two songs you would never have expected to hear this way: "na zare / на заре" (original by alliance / альянс. cccp, 1987) one of the greatest russian new wave synth-pop hits. on the flip side you hear the country folk hymn "just dropped in" (original by kenny rogers. usa, 1967) in collaboration with king dude. it's a clash of styles and genres, a clash of the psychedelic freedom of the west and the nuclear downfall of the east. celebrate our apocalyptic pop vision at dawn, until the end.

The only thing about this album that I don't like is that I didn't find out Linea Aspera had reunited and put out another album until a year after it happened. Cold in places, warm in others, carefully crafted and leaves an impression. Some of the best vocals in this style I've ever heard. Welcome back. maybemagpie
