Boomkat Product Review:
Düsseldorf’s 2nd best band restlessly explore rhythmelodic permutations of electronic rock and dance music, underlined as ever by the percussive suss of Detlef Weinrich aka Tolouse Low Trax/Toresch
‘Flood’ parts in two distinct sections that highlight the diversity of the long-running group’s focussed but wide-angled vision. The first half is definitively driven by the kind of slow, elegant rhythms that regularly appear in Weinrich’s solo output; saddling up with the almost spaghetti Western noir theme of ‘Eurydice’, and strutting like a saddle-sore cowboy at the disco with ‘Celeration’, while Khoes’ curling vocals on ‘Nesindano’ recalls Viktoria Wehrmeister’s Decha styles.
The other half is given to ‘Flood’, a conceptual cycle of five parts that sees them as “a ship of no port”, sailing from the still seas of part I to poetically exotic expressions on an imagined non-place, and swingeing downbeat rhythmic excursions.
