Comment: although Alexander Strung`s 9-track issue Party was issued lately on the verge of the 00s the influence of some parts of the epoch could be heard throughout these 26 minutes. It seems to me that these slightly restrained indie pop songs are influenced both by the Rhein-area indietronica/neo-krautrock scene by the likes of To Rococo Rot, Pluramon, Kreidler, Tarwater, Lali Puna and the US-based post-rock scene by the likes of Mice Parade, Mercury Program, Sea And The Cake, Jim O`Rourke, The American Analog Set. It is the balanced sway between the guitars and synthesizers, between sensual vocal lines and programmed stomping drums and hovering pastoral orchestrations on a minor scale. On the other side, the artist is searching for relaxed balance between technological luxury, and emotive susceptibility. Given that the technological luggage embraces an innumerable amount of possibilities it is arguably not easy task altogether. In a word, the artist demonstrates adeptly its musical skills being not separated from emotions fortunately. The favourites of mine are Olympic Twin, Black Rabbit, Party (What's The Point), Valley Forge. There are up both Alexander Strung`s issues via The Gifted Children. In a nutshell, it is an astonishing one.
