Germany's foremost practitioners of laconic, sickly drone-punk minimalism Kai Drewitz and Sabine Blödorn return with what will surely be seen as their late (mid?) period masterpiece. It's a collaboration with Jeff 'Ulf' Barrows, whose presence perhaps accounts for this being the group's most rhythmic and dub-damaged offering to date. But really Dewitz has been honing and refining this sound since the early '90s and his work in P.L.O.: a vocal manner copped from Kevin Ayers, but (even) more strung-out and dissolute (and very reminiscent of his freund and fellow traveller, Christian Henjes of 39 Clocks, Beauty Contest ++) monochord guitar phrasings that split the difference between a heavy commune folk/psych vibe and ultra-louche jangle, terse Suicide-ish drum machine programs, delayed horn stabs...it's like Lou and Sterling upped their dose and fell under the spell of Neu!, yes, but really moreover it feels like the purest expression of a rock'n'roll-under-x-ray ideal that underpins just about everything good and right...from PiL to Stereolab to The Pickle Factory to F ingers. A knockout.
