Jessie Evans & Bettina Koster – Autonervous

During the last Vanishing tour Bettina Koster from legendary Berlin based 80’s band Malaria! joined the band on stage. Therefore it was no real surprise that when Vanishing stopped, Jessie Evans and Bettina continued as a duo. They have a lot in common when it comes to sounds and tastes in making music. Jesssie’s project Autonervous is now expanded with Bettina on board.

The sound of Autonervous is somewhat like Vanishing although the electronics sound more modern now. You will hear rather fat beats and electronic rhythms, on top of which the girls play saxophones.
You cannot escape to compare this record with the last Vanishing album. And, when doing that it is a fact that this record is not as powerful and innovative as Still Lifes Are Falling. But what you get is a nice and solid album with contemporary sounds and some 80’s sentiments.
