REVOLVE



and after a long pause, i'm back! something besides northern soul this time...

this album is a trip down memory lane for me. crazy to think that it was 10 years ago this came out, because it fits in so well with the current heaps of minimal synth/cold wave recordings crowding the bloggosphere. BEAUTIFUL SKIN was a duo from New York comprised of ex-Rorschach guitarist Nick Forte and Brazilian keyboardist Ross Totino, formerly of the band Computer Cougar. they released only one 7-inch and this LP on the classic california label GSL (Gold Standard Laboratories) before vanishing as fast as they came. while combining elements of the aforementioned minimal and cold wave, theres also moments of kraut, dark ambient and industrial, New Order-like hooks and even classic house, making for a pretty in-depth listening experience. I fucking love this record, and can't believe I'd nearly forgotten about it 'till now. highly recommended download.

  1. Dang dude. This was the first record I ever bought mail-order, after hearing them on a comp when I was in 10th grade. Just re-listened to it for the first time last week. Still solid.
