Dim Locator are special guest for two shows of The Mission in Prague:
New album "Cassandra Lied" by Phil Shoenfelt - out now
Phil Shoenfelt's new solo album Cassandra Lied was recorded in Prague between
August 2018 and November 2019. He was joined in this endeavour by
several notable musicians, including band-mate and co-producer Chris
Hughes (drummer with These Immortal Souls, Mick Harvey, Hugo Race,
Alexander Hacke) and lapsteel guitarist Kristof Hahn of Swans. Marcia
Schofield, Eva Turnová and Baron Anastis sang backing vocals, and
Anastis played some ace bass on “The Man Who Sold The World”.
departure from Phil‘s previous work,
Cassandra Lied has a lyrical depth which is comparable to the work of
rock poets such as Leonard Cohen, Lou Reed and Patti Smith. The music
itself is closer to the layered, atmospheric approach of artists like
Brian Eno, David Bowie and Tony Visconti than it is to traditional rock
dynamics. Other influences on this album are post-punk bands such as Joy
Division and Krautrock bands Neu and La Düsseldorf.
Cassandra Lied is released on January 10th on the Sireena label, and
will be available at online shops such as Amazon and at regular retail
outlets via Broken Silence distribution.
