Boomkat Product Review:
German electronic pop quartet Like A Stuntman release their sophomore long-player Original Bedouin Culture four years on from their Highpoint Lowlife debut album. With a sound that comes close to the latter day output of the Morr Music imprint, Like A Stuntman take a stab at bristling indie-tronics with a more forwards-facing attitude than most. Far from being another romp through Postal Service revisions, Original Bedouin Culture is a little more contemporary and experimental in its execution. It's something of a shame that opening song 'Wake Up William Blake' gets you off to a bit of a misfiring start though. It begins with the wholly deflating opening couplet: "Wake up, William Blake/You're not awake", which the band deem worth repeating. As the record progresses, far more interesting and obscure elements come to the surface, with 'On Repetition We Are' sounding especially enticing with its recorded-in-a-sports-hall reverb and looping, thudded percussion. The band get a bit zeitgeisty with 'No Tundra, No Sun', making strides towards Animal Collective's corner of the universe, while 'Drive To Cologne' comes somewhere between old-school krautrock and Panda Bear's Brian Wilson-isms. There's a lot to recommend this album, and but for a few vocal sequences straying slightly wide of the mark, this is a highly captivating, sonically adventurous outing.
