New York´s band “Elektragaaz”, released their new album “Moved Pictures. With influences such as classical, hip hop, rock and western, they launched their new record at the begining of November at Bandcamp. Jas Windstorm, Josh Firebow, Tom Elektron, Kathy Kaos, Mat Thunder and Kosmic Kate are among the contributors to Elektragaaz.
The acclaimed progressive electronic multi-fusion group Elektragaaz releases its new compilation album, Moved Pictures, on Bandcamp on November 1, 2023. Moved Pictures is a release of specially selected soundscapes for download in a sparkling high-fidelity format. Headed by enigmatic Frisian composer, Poppo Redband, Elektragaaz consists of some of the brightest and best talents in the New York metropolitan area, featuring a bewitching mix of live and electronic instrumental music. The music definitely colors outside the lines and draws on such far-flung influences as classical music, hip hop, rock, house/ techno, pop, dance, film noir, comic strips, spaghetti westerns and video games.
Among the glistening and diverse yet conceptually linked high-fidelity gems in Moved Pictures are songs like the cinematic aquatic adventure “Flying Underwater” and the equally cinematic thriller “Counterspy.” Listeners will also encounter the jazzy electronic Latin vibes of “October’s Child” as well as “Sebastian’s Cat” a piece with both Baroque and EDM flavors.
Also on tap is the deliciously dangerous, sly and sexy “Dancing with Evil Intent” (with an accompanying Bandcamp video) and the effortlessly cool and somewhat psychedelic “The Ghost of Ozymandias.” And then there’s “Death and the Gunfighter,” which one reviewer described as what might have been the musical result had composer Ennio Morricone gotten high with Pink Floyd, Los Lobos and the New York Philharmonic. And this is just the tip of this audiophile quality offering.
