Longplay love 40.0

Wolfgang Raspe's "Try To Keep The Balance" has been released recently as 019 of Super Six Goodies - an album that basicly deals with a style that might (or should?) be called Intelligent / Ambient / Armchair Techno. Deep grooves, long tracks, strings, sometimes minimalistic and influenced by Tribal or Ritual Music that causes a natural state of hypnosis - if you remember the legendary album "Record Off Breaks" by Psychik Warriors Ov Gaia you'll know which kind of musical language we're talking here. No more words necessary - check that one out and don't miss.

"The Sun Behind The Dustbin" is the title of the forthcoming Beehoover-album which is scheduled for release on Exile On Mainstream on January 22nd - an exciting project able to create the tension of a whole (Skate) Metal-group with only being a two piece project consisting of bass, mic and a regular drumkit. Creating songs with this specific and minimalistic approach the two members named Claus Peter Harnisch & Ingmar Petersen come up with at least 10 compulsory tunes somewhat between the borders of down-to-earth Doom, smokey Psychedelia and a slight similarity to early relases of Vienna-based Mucky Pub which partly ruled the european Skate Metal-scene in the early 90's, at some point even with touch of dark Folk, which seems to be the new "everything matches with..."-genre of last - check "A Nice Romantic Evening" to prove this. If you're up for a nice piece of extraordinary music file "The Sun Behind The Dustbin" as one album to ask yr local dealer for in January as this one seems to get better everytime you listen to it, which is one characteristic point of every album that'll be referred to as "important" in the future.

Mike Patton's very own imprint Ipecac Recordings comes up with the first album of re-formed two piece band Hella, now back and re-born as a bunch of five musicians which teamed up to produce "There's No 666 In Outer Space". Piped for February 9th the album with the more than mysterious title is going to catch attention of lovers of more Experimental or Progressive Rock Music that are used to bulky, not easily accessible songs and structures plus a kind of more artsy, GlamRock-related attitude. Surely not the one to be Ipecac's most successful album but as their release politics are not focused on commerical success anyhow this won't matter at all.
