Recently released via Hamburg's Audiolith Records is "Nichtsnutz", the latest - and fourth - longplay assault of the most famous and defo most recognized swiss ElectroPunk outfit ever. Yes, we're talking Saalschutz which are coming up with a big double feature here including the mentioned "Nichtsnutz" plus a full-on live recorded bonus album named "Singen Tanzen Ecken Kanten" to please all dedicated fans out there. Starting with a short spoken word intro feature by Eurodance ambassador DJ Bobo "Nichtsnutz" blows your mind immediately with the first real song, the social media critic "Und Alle So Yeah", sends you to outer space with the beautiful SynthRave ballad "Für Eine Sekunde Unendlich" which features the ethereal, trippy vocal works of Elektra Polytone, touches your heart with the Pop driven melancholia of "Das, Was Uns Kaputt Macht", makes you dance your ass off to the HighEnergy-induced "Alles Geht In Flammen Auf" and serves flashing irony with "Der Star". This combination alone makes "Nichtsnutz" an album as great as an album can be but also the songs not mentioned here in detail are killing your local IndieRave dancefloor within seconds, transforming clubs into moshpits and turning audiences into a frenzy. This is how we like it and whilst listening to the high octane live recordings of "Singen Tanzen Ecken Kanten" one can literally see the audience brocking out wild in front of the stage to tunes like "19, 9 & 90", "Headliner Der Herzen", "Ravepunk Für Eine Bessere Welt" or "Mein Pop, Dein Pop". This is how they do it and this is why you shouldn't miss Saalschutz when they're on stage in your town.
