Boomkat Product Review:
Renowned photographer Wolfgang Tillmans demonstrates the distance travelled from his earliest musical work thru a mix of new, original material, archival finds, and remixes from Justin Strauss, on his Fragile label.
Leading on from his recent live shows with Powell, the Heute Will Ich Frei Sein EP is a typically diverse and spunky set drilling down to Tillmans’ variegated musical interests, namely darkroom EBM/house in the title track; a light headed sort of avant-ambient-trance-pop in Completely Changed; and strong nods to classic synth-pop and Salem in On My Own.
Yet, our favourite piece is perhaps the most whimsical, a 2 minute field recording of a Tired Car Alarm going thru its paces, while the speed-freak NDW styles of Fast Lane (original 1986 / 2016) recalls strapping DAF classics, and comes in dubbed-out, cosmic disco remixes by Justin Strauss.
