Release Date:03/02/2018;Notes:The fifth album from Marsmobil has been hailed by many as their best yet. With closer ties to Minx (2006) than their last two albums, Fairytales Of The Supersurvivor returns to Marsmobil's signature strength of wondrously brilliant songs ("And The Fishes In The Ocean", "Shadows Of The Inner Light") that blend off-the-wall cinemascope sounds with dazzling beats and punchy, powerful hooks to create uniquely distinctive art pop anthems. As always with Marsmobil, Roberto Di Gioia writes, plays, sings and programs everything himself. Here, as on Minx, he's brought in support from a fabulous singer - the very wonderful Amber Lin, who contributes vocals on four songs. Art pop meets Mongolian throat singing, Blade Runner meets Walter Carlos's A Clockwork Orange soundtrack (1972), Tom Dissevelt and Kid Baltan (David Bowie's favorite band) meet Tame Impala. Multi-instrumentalist Roberto Di Gioia needs little introduction. The curious can explore his biography, discography, and extensive lists of projects and collaborations as musician and songwriter for an impression of the hugely diverse achievements of this multi-talent and brilliant musician. As a topical heads-up, Roberto Di Gioia is also the founder of the German jazz supergroup Web Web and released the album Oracle with the group in September of 2017 (COMP 499CD/LP). Di Gioia also wrote and produced Teufelswerk for DJ Hell (GIGOLO 250CD/LP, 2009) and contributed virtually all the songs on Hell's latest album, Zukunftsmusik (GIGOLO 302CD/LP/X-LP, 2017).
