Sendelica - Ziggy Stardust 7"

Fruits de Mer Records (Crustacean 69)

One of the next releases on Fruits de Mer will an ultra cool cover 7" by Welsh psychedelic space rockers Sendelica. This is a great homage to the late musical genius David Bowie including two versions of his masterpiece "Ziggy Stardust". I must add that the tracks were recorded months before Bowie passed away. Sendelica has played this song live and you can hear an acoustic version by them on the compilation album Fashion - Songs Written By David Bowie, the limited Fruits De Mer club members only year 2015 freebie. This of course is a whole different deal. On the A side we've got a marvelous, slow, atmospheric, psychedelic and dreamy version of the song with gorgeous female vocals, sax, lots of floating synths etc. What an amazing vibe, the band really turn this track into something ethereal and very different. If that wasn't enough, Astralasia does an excellent remix of Sendelica's version on the flip side. No, Marc Swordfish does not transform the track into an up-beat dance hit, on the contrary. His remix is even more ambient in nature. I like the way he has added some sequencers and stuff but still uses some of the vocals, lead guitar and sax to a great effect. Wonderful! A must have for Bowie and Sendelica fans. As always, this will be limited issue so hurry up!
