    KOMMANDO SONNE-NMILCH

    Der Specht baut keine Häuser mehr

    Die mit Abstand beste Rachut-Platte. Mag es daran liegen das sie so vielseitig ist oder am Alsterwasser. Im Gegensatz zum Vorgänger ist diese Kommando Sonne-nmilch wesentlich zugänglicher & auch leichter konsumierbar, auch wenn die 17 Songs auf "Der Specht baut keine Häuser mehr" beim besten Willen kein "easy listening" sind! Mit einer illustren Hamburger Gästeschar (Leute von Slime, Die Sterne, Goldene Zitronen) und teilweise einem Frauenchor, vertonen Kommando Sonnenmilch alltägliches bis absurdes, mal experimentell und mit Hörspielcharakter, mal richtig eingängig und mit Pop Potenzial, dann wieder schräg-noisig oder relaxt / laid back. Definitiv keine Platte für "mal eben nebenbei", sondern Musik, die einen fordert und oft auch erst nach mehrmaligem Hören zugänglich wird, aber wann hat man das heutzutage noch???

    Being Empty:Being Filled

    “The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile but that it is indifferent, but if we can come to terms with this indifference, then our existence as a species can have genuine meaning. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light.” Stanley Kubrick It was with great luck that I was able to discover Listener in the Hamburg-based venue Hafenklang a few years ago. I saw three men on stage, playing the very music I missed so much since the "break up" of Hot Water Music. There weren`t a lot of people in the audience, but I got the impression that I was not the only one with goose bumps in the room. The band's three previous records were completely sold out, so I did something I'd never done in my label history so far: I asked for a re- release. We agreed and I developed the lasered Special Editions. On the day of the release, my server collapsed, because I received too many orders and by then I also recognized for the first time how many fans Listener have worldwide, because the orders really came in from all over the world. This is even more impressiv, if you know that Listener publish either on their own or on very small labels. These fans they earn themselves with their almost 150 shows a year and the good old mouth- to-mouth propaganda. I think this echo for their music is coming, or at least that's how it works with me, through another form of poetry in their lyrics. Dan, the singer, calls it talkmusic, I would describe it as a form of storytelling, as it is common in more original forms of music. Away from the idiom, the idle gesture, the staging, to the story, which must be told. And this is exactly where the genius of this band shows itself. Because these stories could also be made by Kubrick, Gus van Sant or Wes Anderson. They are small-scale and self-consistent, they make a big whole and yet are like a fragmented mirror in front of you and let only guess what world you can expect. Now, Being Empty: Being Filled is the first release I have been able to join from the start, and I hope this album will do many rounds on your turntables. Gregor Samsa If you want to make it easy, the basic theme of the new, fourth album "Being Empty: Being Filled" could be the reference to all the outstanding personalities being presented on it. But it's not that easy, of course. Listener have become louder, the guitars more rocking, sometimes more angry. Kris hits the drums as if there is no tomorrow. But this is just the musical side. The other is poetry and Dan sings, or should we say, talks, about life, with its edges, with the big moments, the many questions and the many failures, like no other singer in this world. No pathos, no false theatricality obscures the view of the content of the narrative. This way Dan recounts his stories, which may be our stories, makes Listener by a long way one of the most interesting bands of today. It is these analogies that best describe our time and let us understand them. This pointing out the contradictions without lifting your finger. This warmth, which in the end still gives hope, makes their music unique.

    Time Is A Machine

    Re-Press Third studio album from US three piece, Listener. As with their previous two records, Time Is A Machine marks a definite shift in Listener's sound, particularly evident with the introduction of Kris Rochelle on drums. Musically this is a more powerful rock and roll driven record, coupled with ambient post rock moments and carefully layered instrumentation. Dan Smith deliberates strong poems about our human emotional tendencies dealing with hopes, hurts, and fears in his distinctively unique vocal style. You can separate underground music fans into people who have heard of LISTENER and those who haven’t. LISTENER is releasing their third album, Time is a Machine, and people everywhere are crying on cliff edges and carving their ex-lovers names into tree trunks in anticipation. What started as Dan Smiths’ solo hip-hop project in 1991 has morphed into a band that undertakes classic DIY-style tours, playing basements and private living rooms and bookstores, sending audience members running out in tears with their intensely personal lyrics. Once you hear this Fayeteville, Arkansas band, you will obsessively play songs, over-analyze lyrics and realize the words apply to all the frustrating, sad and mystifying areas of your life. You have been warned. Thrusting a particularly fervent and confrontational sound that Dan Smith, Christin Nelson and Kris Rochelle term “talk music,” LISTENER is poetry over sound. Lyrics are laden with heartbreaking images: a wooden heart, wrecking balls, dams overflowing. This is Rainier Maria Rilke and Sylvia Plath by way of the American South. LISTENER’s second album, Wooden Heart (2010) brought them wider recognition, with the title track reminding us “we only have what we remember” over a yearning pedal steel. Dan’s Appalachian-influenced accent doesn’t so much sing as spit, shout, demand, yell and plead with you to see and accept the obvious. LISTENER’s sound has no equivalent, but the band has the energy early punk like Ian Mckaye projects MINOR THREAT and EMBRACE mixed the post-hardcore sound you would expect from MEWITHOUTYOU. The songs often have classic guitar tones coupled with intense and forcible horns. The rising and crashing crescendos are comparable to NEUTRAL MILK HOTEL, it’s sort of like a marching band run amok but still melodic enough to be relatable. This LP sees the band reflecting on the passage of time. LISTENER hasn’t sacrificed any of the edge and scariness that characterized earlier releases, but they are moving in a more pensive direction; the album is awash with quieter moments, amidst the sonic assaults. The album crashes into your heart with Eyes to the Ground for a Change, which has Wild West style guitar, like a saloon showdown that will end with everyone slumping over in defeat. Not Today is a fully-formed song: more approachable and traditional in terms of structure. The album features Dan’s gorgeous lyrics: Good News First asks for the good news first “to numb the pain.” Tornadoes reflects that you “didn’t leave/didn’t give up,” prescient in the light of the recent tragic tornado in Oklahoma. Everything Sleeps shows the more hopeful and positive tone of the album, telling us “If we give everything we have /every single time /everything we have every single time we may get to live/ what’s next.” For LISTENER fans, the answer is obvious.

    Wooden Heart

    Re-Press Second studio album from (then) talk-music duo, Listener; Wooden Heart is a concept album that loosely draws it's framework from the popular children's tale The Never Ending Story, with each song having an alternate title that corresponds with characters, places and things from the story. Overall a more delicate affair it's predecessor, the album features 11 heartfelt songs that combine delicate and considered instrumentation with the trademark vocal delivery and vivid poetry of Dan Smith. Unlike anything you will have heard. Originally self released in July 2010, this album is re-issued on deluxe coloured vinyl.

    Neon Lights

    pre-order! You cannot help but wonder how they keep on doing it! Just to make sure, "Neon Lights" is of course still 100 per cent Lo Fat Orchestra, hugely catchy and danceable, groovy but still tough, raw and self reflective. 3 years have passed since their last release and many things have changed in the Swiss trio. First, the bass is now played by Roman (of "Deadverse" fame) and further has the Lo Fat Orchestra sound been expanded yet again. Many new elements and nuances were added, which brings us directly to the hits of the album. "Bankrupt Democracy" is EBM at it's best, scarily close to the best from the heyday of the genre. "Stop diggin the ground" on the other hand is a dancefloor smash hit, really groovy but still edgy, making it impossible even for non-dancers not to tab your foot to it. The sheer range of their music, their artful weaving and playing with sounds make Lo Fat Orchestra unique, you might even go as far as to call them the innvators of independent dance music. Check it out yourself, there's lots to discover.

    LO FAT ORCHESTRA

    Questions for honey

    There‘s no other band having the fusion of Disco and Sixties Punk down pat like this Swiss-based three-piece on their second album “Questions for Honey”. A comparative description wouldn’t do these lads justice, so let’s just say: the Oblivians play Gershon Kingsley’s Über-Hit “Popcorn”, or Yello do a cover version of The Monks. You know what I mean, don’t you? It’s definitely Garage, but they generously left the guitars in Detroit to leave more room for development of the organ, the driving bass, the drum section and the vocals, which latently dither between hysteria and lasciviousness. That’s why the whole thing doesn’t sound like simplistic Garage, rather it’s all about the groove. In detail, it’s a trip through musical history: from 60’s Beat to Soul, from Trash to Pop and Noise, coupled with chilly New Wave beats. This music is best enjoyed hanging around in bad company. It turns even the smallest pad into a smoke-filled red light district dive bar, where beer is only used to wash down hard liquor shots. Minimal-Beat played by existentialists for existentialists. But don’t worry, these cats don’t engage in window-dressing by recycling retro sounds. Instead, Lo Fat Orchestra filtrate the essence of the particular styles and bring them back together – and that’s what makes “Questions for Honey” suspense-packed to the very last note.

    The second word is love

    Late-night drinking at the bar: beer and schnapps were flowing, but the rumors were rather irritating: according to drummer Zimmermann and bassist Strohmeier, the new Lo Fat Orchestra record would feature a children’s choir and a string quartet. Immediately, terrifying notions of “The Wall”, concept album bombast and art rock-crap sprang into one’s mind, fondly hoping this was just an expression of the infamous “Black Forest sense of humor”. Now “The Second Word Is Love” is released. There are no children’s choirs but choirs nonetheless and there’s a string quartet of course. All misgivings crumble in a heartbeat, once the bass-drum of the opening track “Be Honest” pounds out, the electricity rustles and sings through the air before the sawtooth-bass, Schmid’s vocals and the organ set in. All is well! All is better! All is: more! On “The Second Word Is Love”, there are more catchy space-melodies, more beats, which also work in the Electro-Disco (“Don’t Talk To Me), more Noise, more updated Motown, more outer-space drone, more bulldozer bass riffs (“I’m So Happy I Could Cry”), more tiramisu-style layered melodies, with atmospheric noise, with shreds from the sound effect device theme park, with more melody topping and there is Gospel from the Garage and, by the way: more guitar (Guitar? Guitar!). So, what’s happening here? For their third album, unlike both of their sublime previous records, Schmid, Strohmeier and Zimmermann decided not to record live. Instead, they lodged themselves into Markus Heinzel’s Liquid Studio in Freiburg and took some time recording. Great decision! “The Second Word Is Love” became an instant classic. It’s packed with brute and crunchy hits that will play “Occupy brainsterm” with you, but there are sprawling, colossal songs as well: a killer record, that you will play to your kids in 20 years time (and they will jump up and down on your sofa, cheering). The world of Lo-Fat just got bigger, more colorful and more complex. But the musical ménage a trois between the Black Forest and Schaffhausen does know that electronically amplified music is all about reduction and repetition. Nothing is flamboyant, bombast is strictly prohibited – Lo Fat is the keyword. The title already gives a clue: “The Second Word Is Love” revolves around affairs of the heart, it’s about love – no longer coming first, but still being ubiquitous – about (self-) hatred, betrayal, loss and fragile happiness. The emotional state is unstable and the music defends itself vigorously against everything falling apart. By the way: the song with the string quartet is called “Going With The Punks”. It’s the definite highlight of the LP. And it will break your heart.

    We need you

    Lo Fat Orchestra have done everything right with " We need you", their latest release, and further keep on perfecting their synthesis of pop and noise. While you could enjoy their previous albums at home or in a convertible, for these four numbers you immediately wish to be in a club, by 3 clock at night, in the midst of a narcotic, omitted dancing crowd with a drink, that yet has to be invented and that in no time shoots you to ambient level. On their new EP the three guys again get along completely without guitars and confine themselves to the essentials: Fat drums and bass sounds, covered with a decent, distorted Farfisa carpet and great Casio melodies. Fortunately, Lo Fat Orchestra still have that certain something, and do not spend time dealing with music that the masses understand at the time. And yet their secret is very simple: You never know when hearing if you are in the past, the present or the future. Supersonic Rock meets movie credits tunes. And at the first hearing one wants to say about this as about any release of the Lo Fat Orchestra: "I like it, but the former album was much better." But every time you catch yourself by no later than the third hearing in saying the opposite.

    MEINE KLEINE DEUTSCHE

    Before people forget sound

    Meine Kleine Deutsche are a phenomenon. Founded in 2002 by Maria „Mia“ Johansson and Patrik Boman, they are sort of the godfathers of Scandinavian Electroclash. It is a well known fact, that the art of computer-aided music-making is flourishing in Northern Europe – at least since the major success of The Knife or Aavikko. With their latest effort “Before people forget sound”, the third album of the Stockholm-based band is available now. It took three years to puzzle-over and fine-tune the sound, to draft and discard and to recreate. Furthermore they called for back-up bringing in Max Groundstroem (Sons of Cyrus, Holiday Fun Club) on guitar and Topi The Kat (Sons of Cyrus, Front de Boeuf) on drums. While the first two records were still dominated by a fury à la Bikini Kill, the third album is infused with melancholic reflectiveness. Now Electroclash is on everyone’s lips not only since yesterday, but what does Meine Kleine Deutsche do differently than all the other bands? The answer is plain and simple: their notion of Punk doesn’t start in 1977, but rather kicks off in 1967 and embraces The Monks just as well as the Velvet Underground. It refers to a time when the creative potential wasn’t limited to “Hey-Ho” and leather jackets, but rather took minimization – rage, sorrow, joy and despair – to give utterance to a completely new form of art. Surely, the most memorable stylistic features are the catchy, shifting vocals by Mia and Patrik, which fluctuate between sweet and weird, between evenly and disturbing. Once again, Meine Kleine Deutsche are breaking fresh ground and chafe at the boundaries of Punk, Electro, Garage and Pop. And: they’ve got something to say! Not only does it sound exciting, but it makes “Before People Forget Sound” a unique record.

    MEINE KLEINE DEUTSCHE

    Body Me

    Two summers and two winters have passed since the last record by this three-piece from Stockholm. The left hand path that was pursued on „Before People Forget Sound“ is steadily kept on „Body Me“. Meine kleine Deutsche are still grinding on the edges of punk, electro and pop with dark lyrics about busted love, a bad moon rising and young, sudden-death. In a world full of empty truisms it´s their desolate form of quest for meaning that distinguishes Meine kleine Deutsche’s works and unfolds it´s full momentum. In times, in which a misunderstood and misused concept of melancholy is romanticised as the ductus of free development, this kind of self-deprecation is an appropriate remedy against everyday phrasemongering.

    MEINE KLEINE DEUTSCHE

    Roky

    Wild and crazy, danceable and swinging, Meine Kleine Deutsche stamps out boredom by grabbing it at the jugular. Auf Gutdeusch: Harte Elektrobeats, mehrstimmiger Gesang, fette Fuzzgitarre, fertig ist Elektropunk der besten Sorte. Begeisternd, zumindest für die Leute, die sich vor dem Aufweichen der Grenzen zwischen Punk und Elektronik nicht fürchten.

    Concert-Requiem / -Islands-

    Limited All Analog Remastering Recording This is one my most beloved albums ... it always reminds me of the horror that occurred in my homeland, Ukraine, in 1933. And I am always thankful when I hear it. It is good to remember the suffering of other people ! Otherwise, life is not worth living..... This album came about in an interesting way .... there came to me a melody at some point that year ... I was not even at the piano .... a melody that I just began to sing ... When I played it on the piano for my friend, the artist Dmitri Farkavec, he right away loved it and suggested that it would be a great opening for a piece dedicated to the multi-millions of Ukrainians who suffered a terrible and deliberate extinction at the hands of the Russians who had invaded my country. As he said to me, "1983 is the 50 year commemoration of the Terror Famine --- it would be a good year to make this piece." And so it came to be ! "CONCERT-REQUIEM" is dedicated to the over seven million Ukrainians who were killed by the Forced Starvation of 1933 who watched in agony as Communist police destroyed grain as they and their children lay starving to death. This album also contains "ISLANDS" for solo piano --- a remarkable bass-oriented piece depicting enormous masses of mystical and murky islands moving through an imaginary sea.. It was inspired by and created for a dance performance by Windwitches of Stockholm. Original Release: 1984 Limited All Analog Remastering Recording

    Illirion

    Lubomyr Melnyk is a Ukrainian pianist and composer. Through his pioneering work in the 1970’s, he developed the technique of “Continuous Music” for piano, and with it a stunning new language for the instrument, based on its actual sound. By way of this new technique, he set several world- records on the piano, notably in Sweden in 1985 where he was recorded playing at over 19.5 notes per second – a speed that has never yet been matched, making him the fastest pianist in the world. Since the mid-1970’s, he has performed concerts with his music world-wide as well as radio recordings. Most of his works are for piano solo and duo, although there exist several works for orchestra and various ensembles. While his revolutionary piano playing was mostly ignored by the classical institutions in its early years, his music is gaining an ever-wider international awareness. This album features five recent works, that display the beauty and magic and virtuosity of his playing.

    The Lund - St.Petri Symphony

    " In 1978 I arrived for my first time to Sweden, to the town of Lund .. and there I met a remarkable man named Jean Sellem who ran a tiny gallery in the middle of the town, "The Galleri St.Petri: Dedicated To Modern Art and Thought "... and he was one of the few and first people who saw the greatness and beauty of Continuous Music .. and since I was a complete "unknown" at that time, I really needed his moral support ! --- and he created with me, the idea of a huge work for multiple pianos ... three pianos .. in stages ... and it became as he had envisioned ! and was first performed on a small upright piano in 1978 in his gallery, and the piece was called THE LUND.St.PETRI SYPMPHONY .. becuase it was so symphonic in grandeur (once the three pianos came together ...) The Lund - St. Petri Symphony, from 1979, is the second album from Lubomyr Melnyk and the first composition for double piano which he released. In this work, the early minimalist tendencies which played such a major part in the emergence of Continuous music, are very significant and clearly evident. This Double LP set sold out within 1 year of production, Only 1000 copies were made. Original Release: 1980 Limited All Analog Remastering Recording
