Boomkat Product Review:
Berlin's Annegret Perel Fiedler enlists deadpan Quebecois producer and vocalist Marie Davidson to assist on her second full-length.
Following releases on DFA, Perel looks to the electro house era (think Simian Mobile Disco) to inspire the awkwardly titled "Jesus Was an Alien". “Jesus Was An Alien is a discourse about whether Jesus was an actual alien,” she explains, “but also a social debate about what is and implies religion today.”
The music itself is pretty rudimentary electro pop, produced well enough and seemingly inspired by the Italians Do It Better crew. The Marie Davidson-featuring title track is probably the album's most successful moment, evoking a cocaine-fueled '70s (or early '80s?) where Erich von Däniken books sounded almost reasonable.
