Hydrus, Italy

Hydrus - Midnight in Space. 1978 PDU.

Hydrus is one of the 3 indigenous electronic albums on the PDU label along with Eletriktus and Robert Cacciapaglia's "Sonanze". (As an aside, PDU were most known to collectors for their Italian pressings of the German Cosmic Courier clan). Of these, Hydrus is the only one that remains without a CD reissue. Hydrus could have been named Hybrid, as they mix spacey, non sequencer based electronic music with tiny hints of disco. Lovely wordless female vocals adds an exotic atmosphere. Not a bad record at all, though they should've let loose a bit more as the electronics get a bit static after while.

Priority: none
