Sophie Lillienne - Miniview: The Fragile Idea
Electro Sophie Lillienne is a trip-hop/alternative electro act based off of the IRMA record label. "The Fragile Idea" is his latest album, and contains fourteen tracks of smooth electro flow. Both the physical and digital copies of the album come with two bonus tracks which vary depending on which version you get. And, though there is a lot of content on his album, I'm really not all that impressed with what he's shown me thus far. 

He sounds as if he wants to sing and let his vocals fly out on their own, but then he puts on digital effects that really, really aren't all that great and turns his voice from what I would presume to be alright, to shit. Personally, I prefer his instrumental work over anything with his voice in it, because that is where I don't have to listen to him. Songs such as 'Radio Requiem', 'Erase And Rewind', and 'Lights In The Town' showcase himself as a skilled producer in groovy, indie flavored electro beats. 

Sophie Lillienne has a very skilled mindset when it comes to dishing out music, but his vocals need a lot of work before I can really appreciate anything he does. As of right now, I really cannot go back to this album at all.

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
