Sasu Ripatti and Antye Greie team up for their sophomore album in February.
Greie had a busy 2008, putting out two solo full-lengths as AGF as well as co-producing Ellen Allien's Sool, and she's looking to carry that on into this year with the release of Symptoms. Produced with her long-term partner Sasu Ripatti (who you may be more familiar with under the name Luomo, Uusitalo or Vladislav Delay), their AGF/Delay collaboration combines the duo's experimental and pop tendencies to create restrained vocal tracks that overflow with sexual tension.
As with their previous album Explode, Symptoms is full of dubby textures and micro-samples, whilst Greie adds her quirky vocals that drift between singing and spoken word. Greie's friendship and co-production work with Ellen Allien has meant that Symptoms will see the light of day on Allien's BPitch Control label, which should see AGF/Delay's sound brought to a wider audience this time around.
