We Are Monster
Finally reissued and at a mid-line price! Pampa re-releases Isolée's second album and critically-acclaimed 2005 classic We Are Monster, newly-remastered and including three tracks previously not released on CD! Just like Alice, we enter into Wonderland, which in this case consists of nothing more than three sounds. And we don't even need to snack on those mushrooms to experience all sorts of unheard-of things. Just like organic tissue, these sounds unfold a life of their own -- they break apart in fragments and recombine to form strange shapes, often leaving the acoustic senses in the dark. We Are Monster is fascinating because of the suggestive power with which Isolée charms the ear. This sound is not disco in the classic sense, but some mutation of classic disco combined with elements from the 21st century, with wonderful, harmonious and still disrupted tunes, space noises from another galaxy, strange bass tones and leaking drum patterns. It goes way beyond pure disco because disco is designed for the dancefloor. We Are Monster is rather an ingenious soundtrack for city life as well as for space-out times in your living area. Enchanting music conceived by one of our greatest contemporary artists. For the first time enriched with three very rare pearls from Isolée's treasure chest: "Can't Sleep All Night" and "Lost" are tracks from a 2003 Playhouse 12" and "Hermelin" is a track from a 2006 12" in a previously-unreleased version.
