Lena Platonos: “Hoping By Shopping (Kim Ann Foxman Remix)”


Last year, the ever-excellent San Francisco label Dark Entries has reissued another sublime album from Greek electronic pioneer Lena Platonos, her debut solo album “Μάσκες Ηλίου” (“Sun Masks”). Originally recorded in 1984, the “Sun Masks” LP was Platonos’ first record to feature her own lyrics and vocals. The album featured experiments with different sounds and a new batch of electronic equipment, such as the Roland TR 808 drum machine and Yamaha C60 synthesizer. Lena narrates each song in deadpan fashion, skillfully reciting her surreal Greek poetry. Her lyrics deal with the futility of love, the gap of human relationships, consumerist alienation in the bourgeois lifestyle of the 1980s.
