MARINADA - Son Of The Sun (2007, Slušaj najglasnije)

Za razliku od eksperimentalnog "Analog Dog" albuma, ovdje je Marinada napravila daleko lakši i prihvatljiviji electro-pop/dance album u rangu electro-body stila osamdesetih godina. Minimalističke plesne ritmičke strukture prožete su sasvim jednostavnim melodijskim obrascima, efektima i tekstualnim sadržajem čime u globalu prizivaju u sjećanje niz sjajnih Kraftwerk brojeva poput "Showroom dummies" ili "The room of mirrors", a pažljivi slušatelji će zasigurno pronaći još podosta utjecaja. Album ima i nekoliko vrlo radiofoničnih skladbi, te vrijedi izdvojiti naslovnu "Son of the sun", zatim "Fast" koja djeluje kao nedovršeni dio Soft Cellovog "Non Stop Erotic Cabaret", najplesniju "Pattern love" u kojoj se valja prisjetiti vrlo slabo prihvaćenog trija Beograd s početka 80-tih, te Yazoo-ovsku laganicu "Couple". Kroz posljednju skladbu "Our music" može se naslutiti da Marinada priprema mogući medijski proboj u širem smislu na globalnu elektronsku scenu tekstom "our music is coming, don't turn the radio, don't listen the news, don't watch TV, don't connect yourself, don't go to clubs, don't go to disco, don't talk about music, don't listen DJ...".
Plesan, ležeran i veoma pristupačan album koji ima mnoštvo pop elemenata, ali i vrlo produhovljene fabule i vrlo inovativnih glazbenih riješenja. Ako će biti sreće, dolazi vrijeme za uživanje Marinade.

Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2008-01-02
Electronic music with male vocs, simplistic melodies and drum machine beats bring to mind the joy of early Human League, OMD, early 80’s “synth bands”, but with an overall dark tone like what Joy Division was headed into, what the first New Order did. Cool stuff from Croatia (we have a live cd of this band in the library that is really good).

1) slow plod, gothy drama
2) new wavey electro synth with vocs, minimal drums
3) simple drum machine, synth melody, Human League really coming to mind
4) that synth, (Korg is it?), bass melody with treated vocs, harmonica 5) simple hip hop beat and vocal sense, very minimal
6) simple new wave synth upbeat, Human League again
7) simple, with dark feel then pretty synth melody
8) dark mechanical synth beat, ploddy with cool electronic noises
9) very simple again, almost a Young Marble Giants feel in the melodic synth/organ
10) more collage-like, swirling tones, a beat builds, very cool
