New Sheriff

New Sheriff

New Sheriff is a music project based on vocal samples (or “she-riffing”). The main instrument is a robotic synth made out of a female voice. Live instrumentations and often a bit quirky sound technical mishaps enrich the meditative electronic feel, leading the music towards sound art. A somewhat melancholic story starts at the entrance of a New Town. All the songs are about the extreme: confidence, envy, mania, loneliness, depression, repression, paranoia and loss of Love. The limited edition C-cassette is published by Phallic Vatican Records. Side B is by Eloise Colaballos, mixed by Vilunki 3000. In 2018 the album was re-released as a vinyl LP by Kasino Records.
