Seksound keeps up the brilliant work of rereleasing indie pearls from the past – this time it’s the cult band Bizarre and their debut album from 1994.
Dream-pop band Bizarre released altogether two albums during their existence – Beautica (1994) and Café De Flor (1996). The latter was re-released by Seksound early in 2015.
Beautica’s reverb-drowned guitars and barely audible vocals once set the stage for Estonian indie scene, also paving way for Pia Fraus’ entrance a few years later. Back in the day, Bizarre used to offer poetic-astral alternative to the more punkish Röövel Ööbik but there is definitely more to Beautica than just dream painting. The noisy side of shoegazing may also be spotted.
These 7 tracks on the original cassette 22 years ago mark an important point in the Estonian alternative pop music tradition. It’s a historical document representing a brave contact with worldwide atmospheric music trends.
The official release of the LP is February 15th!
