Boomkat Product Review:
In the year of the snake, Serpentine arrives; a collection of music from new and current artists on Extreme. The tracks are both previously unreleased and from albums already available. This album is a statement about the music of Extreme and how, as a label, it continues to seek out the new and innovative music of the world, with Maju, Kiefer and Ether. It is also a sign of the continuing support Extreme has for artists such as Soma, Social Interiors and Pablo’s Eye. From the melodious ambience of Maju to the roaring percussive rock music of Ether, it is always music that slips between the cracks of the mainstream. Soma deliver their filmic dub noir and Pablo’s Eye charm with their beautiful eloquence. Social Interiors provide an otherworldly soundscape and the folk western songs of Christian Kiefer are further testament to the challenging diversity of the label.
