Boomkat Product Review:
Eccentric, lo-fi electronic pop that inspired Felix Kubin, Mouse on Mars and Barbara Morgernstern.
The enigmatic solo project of Swiss oddball Christian Pfluger, Die Welttraumforscher released over thirty albums over the years, penning stories, drawing illustrations and making films to vividly document his artistic universe. If you're unsure of where to start, this stunning Bureau B retrospective is a useful jumping off point, collecting up Pfluger's early Die Welttraumforscher material from 1981 to 1990 and remastering it for cohesion.
At it's core, Die Welttraumforscher is pop music, but Pfluger's eccentric world is too unusual for mass market concerns. The songs have vocals, basslines, rhythms and riffs, but everything's assembled with such quirky surrealist fantasy that it feels as if it has more in common with outsider folk, prog fusion or the outer reaches of the electronic avant-garde. The difference is that Pfluger appears to make music without any stuffy notions of hierarchy; these songs are refreshingly pure - it's easy to hear how a Mouse On Mars and terminal pop outsider Felix Kubin were inspired by these alluring, labyrinthine compositions. So weird and so enjoyable
