Slovenian electronic music pioneers and video art trailblazers Borghesia return with the new full-length album ‘Proti Kapitulaciji’ (‘Against Capitulation’). The album is out today, October 23 2018, on Moonlee Records. It is available on CD, in digital format on all music streaming platforms (including Bandcamp “free download”). The double vinyl will be ready by early December (pre-order here).
Borghesia’s new album is a free-floating retrofuturist industrial art rock epic based on Srečko Kosovel’s modernist poetry that sits somewhere between an alternative soundtrack of Blade Runner, the uncanny ambience of Coil, melancholy of Berlin era David Bowie and immediacy of Nine Inch Nails.
The album is based on the striking poetry of Slovenian visionary Srečko Kosovel (1904-1926). During his short but fruitful life as an adherent of unrestricted technological change, “the Nikola Tesla of modernist poetry” grew into an ardent critic of European politics. Years before Burroughs and Bowie, he invented the cut-up technique and wrote a poem called “Heroes”. His verbal explosives calling against sterile politics and petite bourgeois provinciality are now resurrected by Borghesia.
‘Proti Kapitulaciji’ was recorded, produced, mixed and mastered by Aldo Ivančič. The band includes singers Dario Seraval, Ivo Poderžaj, Irena Tomažin Zagoričnik, and Jelena Rusjan (also on bass guitar) and guitarists Sašo Benko and Andraž Mazi. The cover and booklet are work of the talented Matej Stupica. Live visuals are provided by Boštjan Čadež and Lina Rica.
