Boomkat Product Review:
Palais Schaumberg's self-titled debut is a cornerstone of early '80s German new wave, or NDW (Neue Deutsche Welle). The group is perhaps best remembered as the launching pad for its central figures Holger Hiller and Thomas Fehlmann (Moritz Von Oswald would join a few years later) and left behind a small but perfectly formed catalogue of avant-pop-py, dance-oriented albums and singles which often crop up in best-of lists for the era. 'Palais Schaumberg' is arguably the best of them, from the meaningful opening statement 'Wir Bauen Eine Neue Stadt' (trans: 'We Build A New City') to the absurd jazz-fonk of 'Die Freunde', the dotty swing of 'Gute Luft', yelpy experimentation on 'Grünes Winkelkanu' and the clinically techy-funk of 'Deutschland Kommt Gebräunt Zurück' or 'Eine Geschichte'. Essentially they're like a German answer to Factory's Cabaret Voltaire or Section 25, only suitably more buttoned up, economical. Recommended!
