Ivy's Day - In Another Time (1985)

For those of us who search high and low for the next hidden synth gem, it's often easy to feel discouraged, as though all the truly worthwhile items have all been found by now. That may be at least partially true, but every once in a while you discover something that renews your hope and keeps you in the hunt. This record represents that very experience for me.

Another French masterpiece (a true weakness of mine), this 7" has all the right elements for dark-tinged minimal synth wave greatness. I'd only discovered it at the end of last year, having never even heard of it before, so I'm fairly certain there aren't many copies of this kicking around. Have to say I love the artwork done by French cartoon artist Enki Bilal, as well. Hope you dig this one. Enjoy!

Track List:

A - In Another Time
B - In Another Time (Instrumental Remix)

I have found myself listening over and over to this track more than any in awhile. The music is beautifull, and artwork does have that certain 'je ne sais quoi'french melanch that compliments it so well. Love this. Thank-you.
