Mariangela - S/T LP
In the mid 70s, Mariangela Celeste signed to a major label (Polygram) at the age of 13. She would then go on to record her self-titled album with rising European superstar Vangelis. Though tragically overlooked upon its release, Mariangela is a gem of early electronic pop with sparkling synths, drums machines, and lush arrangements, propelling the songs of an unapologetically strong-willed Adolescent.
Its sound is years ahead of its time, with Vangelis' decisions to wrap the song’s dreamy melodies in sun- dazed synths, popping drum machines, and cavernous guitar effects, confounding even its creator.
