As part of electronic rumors continuing support for Buffetlibre DJs’ and Amnesty International’s ‘PEACE’ project, we are pleased to be able to announce that the album is now available! Described by the Buffetlibre guys as a ‘musical atlas’ the record features over 150 brand new songs by artists from over 50 countries, including some big names that will be of interest to our readers, such as: The Antlers, frYers, Gooseflesh, Jori Hulkkonen, Kissogram, Marc Almond, Marsheaux, Micro, The Neon Judgement, Patrick Wolf, The Toxic Avenger, Kid606, The Ultrasonics, Operator Please, You Love Her Coz She’s Dead, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Tesla Boy, 4hero, ASCII.Disko and Avian X…just to name a few!
Of particular interest is a brand new track by Dubstar! It seems Sarah Blackwood and the guys have put their differences aside for this good cause and recorded a cover version of Passions’ ‘I’m In Love With A German Film Star’. 2008 was the last time we had the possibility of Sarah taking time out from the wonderful Client to record new Dubstar material but things turned a little sour. If a reason to shake hands and make music was needed, then drawing attention to human rights abuses worldwide seems like a very good one.
The Buffetlibre guys have very kindly allowed electronic rumors to exclusively share this track with you lot.
It’s a lot more post-punky, shoegazey even, than I had expected, but a track the washes over you and carries you away with it. The instrumentation and vocals swirl around each other and swell toward the finale. It’s nice, as well, to hear Sarah singing in her ‘Dubstar’ voice (as opposed to her ‘Client’ voice) again, it reminds me of the early 90’s so much I can’t help but smile.
Does this mean a future for Dubstar? Who can tell.
You can choose to pay between €5 and €25 for the album, which for 180 tracks and artwork is a cracking deal, and the collected money will be used for Amnesty International’s investigation and action campaigns aimed at preventing cases of Human Rights abuses around the world.
Fantastic cause, Fantastic album, just listen to the stream here.
