German Army – Last LanguagePosted: December 28, 2013
If you enjoy Excepter’s amorphous, schizophrenic trippertronics, you’ll probably fall in love with the sounds of the mysterious German Army, who prefer to crawl in the dark rather than bathe in the light, churning disorienting industrial-noise soundscapes propelled forward by cold, sterile beats. It’s definitely not easy listening, it’s more like maze listening – during the course of the LP’s 10 tracks one desperately tries to find a way out of the narrow corridors filled with strange creatures and terrifying sounds. But the maze doesn’t let go so easily. Last Language is cold and unwelcoming, but once one gets familiar with noise cut-ups and mangled electronics, it becomes strangely enticing. One of the more adventurous releases from 2013, also available on 12” vinyl. Recommended!
