Boomkat Product Review:
Ran$om Note brilliantly head perpendicular to their previous form with Flug 8’s astral navigation, Leuchtkraft (or Luminescence); finding Frankfurt-based graphic designer and producer Daniel Herrmann veering from prior techno experiments into uncharted deep space located somewhere between the constellations of Steve Hauschildt, Conrad Schnitzler and Popol Vuh.
Lifting off from the saltier synth-pop and kosmiche inclinations of his Trans Atlantik  LP, Flug 8 plots out a wide-eyed yet introspective sound in his 3rd album to date, expanding his scope to absorb light from more distant, kosmiche inspirations, giving the sense of a search for some alien sensation that he knows is out there and must persist in discovering.
Initially he remains in contact with mission control in the scene-setting Rollfeld but soon enough the communication is severed as he enters the ice-fields of KristallPalast and the trip takes a starker turn to the isolated heights of Man High, coming to terms with the beautiful loneliness in Eisregen before the interception of jagged distress signals of acousmatic provenance steer the trip toward an unknown planet in Mittelwelle. On touching down he’s greeted by radiant light beings, distant relations of Popol Vuh in Wolkendecke, and joins their ritual dance in the jelly-limbed jig of Sierra Charlie until dawn, when Morgenstern breaks above the horizon with the radiance of five suns, and the doomy Solarwind blows our protagonist off course again, spiralling towards the melancholy resolution of Nordlicht’s creamy ambient hues.
