NOEXIST007 is the seventh official album released through the multi-tasking and loosely defined collective No Exist. It's the first compilation, and curated by nomadic No Exist artist Così e Così. The genre-bending arch of new and/or unreleased songs reflect current issues surrounding sexual politics, tech-dread, and the conflicting methods of survival in our age of brutality and beauty.
Comprised entirely of artists Così e Così has met and worked with across the globe, it features from Montreal Valeda, long-time collaborator YlangYlang, and from Toronto Cares, and Brigitte Bardon't, who is behind the mental health awareness podcast Drone Therapy. Representing on the other side of the ocean from Paris is the young producer Désiré (appearing here with his duo Euphonic Alliances Ltd.), newcomer John Poubelle (with a powerful "punk fragile" album-opening track), and the veterans of doom poetry: Winter Family, who split their home between Paris and Jerusalem.
Also featured is up-and-coming talent from Turkey - Okay Vivian, and producer Jtamul, along with additional Turkish artists braun.aar currently based in Klagenfurt, and Robogeisha currently based in Berlin. Closing off NOEXIST007 is Melbourne artist Nothinge, who has been on the fringes of the No Exist collective since the beginning, with the paradoxically creepy yet tender ballad of robot love, "I'll Be With You Again".
NOEXIST007 is a dark and textured musical foray into the depths of the unknown, as per course for No Exist, but offers pockets of light and journeys across either side of the spectrum.
