    Release Notes:

    'There are some great female artists making laptop pop at the
    moment, but even in such company Anja Plaschg stands out. Not
    that she's one of the current spate of solo synth-girls,
    although much of her debut album, Lovetune for Vacuum, does
    find her programming sounds normally the preserve of glitch
    techno/clicks+cuts musicians or purveyors of IDM (so-called
    Intelligent Dance Music). The rest of the time she's singing
    self-penned atmospheric ballads that cry out to be described
    as eerie, haunting and fragile but are possessed of an almost
    neo-classical power and grandeur. The lovechild of a Sapphic
    union between Sinead and Bjork, Enya on depressants or a Dead
    Can Dance for the digital age? Something like that.

    Plaschg - who goes by the name of Soap&Skin is only 18. She
    was born in 1990 on a farm in the tiny village of Gnas in the
    south of Styria, and today lives in Vienna. Her music, a
    jarring juxtaposition of the delicate and dissonant, has about
    it such an air of mystery, drama and quiet insanity it's hard
    to separate the myth-mongering from the truth when it comes to
    the details of her life, but apparently her parents own a pig
    farm and the young Plaschg, instead of devoting herself to the
    joys of pork production, was classically trained in piano and
    violin while learning to navigate basic sound programmes on
    the computer from her brother. At 16, she began studying at
    the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna before uploading some songs
    to her MySpace, earning the attention of the Berlin
    underground - specifically, acclaimed techno-punk T
    Raumschmiere, who got her song Mr Gaunt PT 1000 released on
    the electronic label Shitkatapult.'
