Los Angeles-based Tropic Of Cancer is the solo project of Camella Lobo.
Though her music has been labeled Gothic, Cold Wave, Shoegaze and more, Lobo’s take on her influences is anything but nostalgic.
Tropic Of Cancer has managed to imbue its own elusive gaze and craft a strangely beautiful and intoxicating sound in the wake of its predecessors.
Tropic of Cancer | Court of Devotion
Formerly a duo with minimal electronic artist Silent Servant (Juan Mendez), Tropic Of Cancer has been stoking a slow-burning cult following since its first EP (“The Dull Age”) on Berlin-based label, Downwards in 2009.
“The Sorrow Of Two Blooms”, an EP released on London imprint Blackest Ever Black, pushed Tropic Of Cancer into the underground spotlight. Since then, Lobo has released a handful of celebrated EPs on Italy’s Mannequin Records and Antwerp-based Sleeperhold Publications. Her first full-length album – “Restless Idylls” – is out now on Blackest Ever Black.
Dva Damas | Living Again (Hawkline)
“Nightshade” is the debut full-length from Los Angeles-based duo DVA Damas. Recorded between 2010 and 2012 by composer/producer team Taylor Burch and Joseph Cocherell, the album follows up the group’s sold-out 10-inch on Downwards, “Brand New Head”.
Nightshade mixes the western sounds of Ennio Morricone, the processed mechanics of late-70s industrialists, and the heavy heartbeat and conceptual production of dub, exploring a territory somewhere between the spacious vistas of a Sergio Leone film and the claustrophobic, menace-filled spaces defined by masters like Stanley Kubrick.
This event is highly recommended by Digital in Berlin! We are giving away 2 x 2 tickets. Just send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Tropic of Cancer” as the subject.
