INFO: Everyone who went out buying multiple copies of Slowdive, Ride and Chapterhouse albums seemed to end up making electronic music of some sort, at least that's what it feels like right now. Already this year we've had albums from Ulrich Schnauss and M83 and the whole nu-gaze thing was supposedly over, so it's surprising to see another drawing in from the mists, this time from electronic music veteran Marcus Schmickler's Pluramon project. With releases dating back from the mid 90s in the early days of Mille Plateaux, it was with his last album that Schmickler finally made the dent in the music scene we always knew he was capable of, and that was thanks in some part to his collaborations with a certain Julee Cruise. Yep, that would be the same Julee Cruise who made her name lending her smoky tones to David Lynch for the Twin Peaks soundtrack, and her vocals made Schmickler's 'Dreams Top Rock' album something of a milestone in the genre.
