Boomkat Product Review:
Berlin's Property rattle off lo-fi post-punk that sounds something like third-gen Joy Division demos recorded by Cold Cave. Reverberating, noisy dream-pop fog.
Property are based in Berlin, but you wouldn't think it hearing "Water Temple". There's no minimal techno or deconstructed club here, neither is there anything resembling the city's satellite experimental realms. Dutch musician Marijn Degenaar and Aussie Vivant de Non make their take on post-punk, ditching the angular guitars but keeping the kind of Hook-y bass that gave Joy Division and New Order their relentless drive. The songs work best when they're most corrupted: opening track 'Empty Leather Shell' sounds as if it could fall apart at any moment, and 'Diet of Worms' sounds like it's being piped through a thick concrete wall.
The album is reportedly inspired by the theme of hydromancy - we're not completely sure what that means, but if it's something about nostalgia for music created in wet Northern weather, we hear it.
