Five years after Mars Etc., German Munich based band Aloa Input (Cico Beck, Angela Aux and Marcus Grassl) have announced the release of a new album. Devil’s Diamond Memory Collection will be out in May 2021. According to the press release, they have compiled a kaleidoscope of anti-hymns that sing of the doom and reinvention of mankind.
The album’s making was expansive in time and space as the last 5 years saw the band work on sessions between Mexico City, Montreal and Munich. The resulting 14 tracks sound as if they were recorded in 1967, 1999, 2007 and 2022. Hypnotic choirs over complex polyrhythms, singing robots on top of cinematic synth-arrangements, flutes, sparkling hits and lost scientists. Aloa Input create a hybrid of anti-pop, audio drama and music for a film, full of surprises and magic twists.
“Desert Something” is the first excerpt. Listen below.
