Behind The Sky has released Appalachian Wilderness, by ‘synth sorceress’ Lisa Bella Donna.
The album features two long-form synthesizer compositions, that the label says “further establishes Lisa Bela Donna as the torch bearer for analog synth-based Berlin School music.”
For fans of classic electronic music sounds – Mellotron, Arp 2600 and Moog synths – Lisa Bella Donna has created a set of sonic journeys inspired by the Appalachian wilderness.
Bella Donna plays Moog Synthesizers & Sequencers, ARP 2600, Mellotron, Organ, ARP String Ensemble, Polymoog, Reel to Reels, Gongs, Chimes & Bells.
Appalachian Wilderness is available via Bandcamp. You can preview the album below.
Witch Moon, right, is a synthtacular psychedelic portrait of the sonic sorceress.
The artwork is by Dan Lerner / Omnigraphicon. The design is available on a classic unisex jersey short sleeve t-shirt, in sizes from small to 3xl.
Skull Synth, below, is by Masruron Nihayanto and seems to channel classic 70’s fantasy book cover designs by artists like Frank Frazetta.
The t-shirt art features a desolate landscape, littered with skulls, and dominated by a nude woman and her 4-tiered modular synthesizer. In other words, it’s exactly what you’d want to have airbrushed on a 70’s conversion van full of analog synth gear.
The Skull Synth design is available in sizes from small to 3xl.
Both shirts are made with 100% Airlume combed and ringspun cotton t-shirts.
