Boomkat Product Review:
Bureau B give new life to Hans-Joachim Roedelius' timeless, gorgeous 1982 issue of electronic chamber music, 'Offene Türen'. Manning a selection of synthesizers at a time of musical flux and upheaval all around him, Roedelius steadfastly forges his own sort of inner-space music, a complex, enigmatic patterning of rhythm, harmony and melody with a uniquely mediative and compelling outcome condensing ideas he hatched and developed in the '70s, with an '80s efficiency tempering his more overblown tendencies. The use of analogue rhythm machine is a distinctive quirk to much of the album, whether powering the strange, otherworldly shapes of 'Mitt Offnem Visier' or to more discreet effect embedded within the stereo-wide pulses of 'Spiegelung', and to, dare I say, sexy effect, in the shuffling grind of 'Husche', but ultimately it's that searching, quintessentially queered German feel for electronic melody and harmony that marks this album out from the rest of his era and even his own catalogue.
