Boomkat Product Review:
Spirituality from The Germans, on Cortizona.
"Picture a clandestine meeting in 1984 between Mark Hollis of Talk Talk, a sleepwalking Kate Bush, and Enya on expired LSD, in a wooden shed in the secret corners of Bokrijk, drinking absinth and recording an album on the synths of Suzanne Ciani and a treasured mid 18th century french horn. A sonic fever dream directed by David Cronenberg, "Spirituality" is not just an album; it's an invitation to explore the extraordinary. Let the music be your guide as The Germans redefine the boundaries of reality, inviting you to embrace the sublime and surreal. Open your ears and heart to the extraordinary journey that awaits.
Following the extravaganza of their previous album 'Sexuality', The Germans set sail on a transformative quest in search of peace and quiet. Withdrawn to the countryside, unaffected by the spirit of the times, the Belgian ensemble managed to create a unique and fascinating new opus. Serving as the second installment in a trilogy, the album surprises with its classic songwriting and introspective mood. Guided by maverick producer Micha Volders, The Germans meticulously craft a delicate sonic landscape through the use of classical guitar, early digital synths, percussion, prepared piano, and the addition of rozanne descheemaeker's beautiful french horn arrangements. You will not be disappointed."
