Martin Rev: Martin Rev
Reissue of brilliant, forward-looking first solo album by Suicide's Martin Reverby - download code included
In 1980, shortly after Suicide's second full-length, Martin Rev released his first solo album on preeminent No Wave label Infidelity (Lust/Unlust). Uninhibited by the trappings of a collaborator, Rev was freed to explore his most experimental and pop leanings with dirty synths, dark melodies, and dream-like textures, and produced a masterpiece of modern alienation that captures a uniquely New York landscape. Echoing other electronic forerunners such as Silver Apples and Kraftwerk, and foreshadowing the work of Aphex Twin and Air, Rev's solo outing rests firmly in the lineage of unnerving sounds from the furthest fringe of maladjustment.
