Quarantine album pick(s) is our new series focusing on musical confessions during involuntary isolation. Sharing his favorite albums at the moment is the head of the Amek label, producer and messiah of Bulgarian underground music – Angel Simitchiev aka Mytrip.
“If I have to be completely honest, the pandemic caught me binge listening to early Korn and Marilyn Manson albums. However, some more leftfield definitely made its way to my most played records. These past three weeks I’ve been constantly coming back to the latest Moss Harvest cassette I got as a gift for lockdown birthday. Ferric Memory is a record I can’t possibly recommend more for its beautifully destroyed sound possess an amazing amounts of sadness, desperation and power. Also, I catch myself thinking a lot about Italy, being hit the hardest in Europe right now, so should come as no surprise I’m listening a lot to Caterina Barbieri’s Ecstatic Computation. Last but not least I was rediscovering the genius of Pretty Hate Machine by Nine Inch Nails and they dropped the digitals for Ghosts V-VI for free, and a day doesn’t pass since then without leaving those on shuffle, especially Together. Stay safe everybody!”
