It's not a secret that the beloved triple named Frittenbude recently unleashed their new album "Delfinarium" via Hamburgs hardest hitting independent label Audiolith Records which has been home to all of the bands albums so far and the sales rates prove that they are on their way to the top - congrats for crashing Germanys album top 100 at rank #14. And they've come a long way in their musical evolution as they're branching out from their well-known 4/4 party bangers, embracing influences of Drum'n'Bass - "Nur Wegen Dem Eiskonfekt" - and even Dubstep - "Dies Das (Riesenlöve)" / "Innere Altmark" - beatwise, fusing 4-2-the-floor with deep melancholia and formerly rare intimate moments, far out psychedelic abstractions - "Aufregende Farben" -, proper Indie songs and, yes, also bangers setting floors, iPod speakers and panda bears on fire, transforming your local dancefloor into your personal moshpit of choice. Play out "Heute Nur Einmal" or the oldskool piano driven "Heimatlos" with its massive, techy and seemingly Poker Flat Recordings-influenced bass line and you'll know what we're talking here. Defo the most diverse and grown up Frittenbude-release so far that surely will be gaining attention from an audience wider spread and a little older than the bands average fan base which is, in fact, a young one. And this mixture of young and adult is what'll take their album number four to the very top - approximately scheduled for 2014. Maybe. That's two years to go and in the meantime we'll be enjoying our trip to their "Delfinarium" on a regular basis. You're recommended to do so as well.
