Kyoto / Zoe Sinatra – Venetian Blinds / Mais Qu’Est-Ce Que Tu Fumes?
Venetian Blinds / Mais Qu’Est-Ce Que Tu Fumes? offers immediate satisfaction with its opening sounds ~ metallic and buxom drums, rippling piano fill, moreish guitar and that velveteen voice… which belongs to Belinda de Bruyn, the crown jewel of this 1984 original release. On the flip, a sultry, swinging downtempo bottle of bittersweet bliss - which may or may not have ever been pressed before now. When you thirst for such new-age wave / rage / mage, Stroom are there to quench.
