Boomkat Product Review:
It’s an odd release this, it seems to have some kind of multiple personality disorder going on, but don’t shy away now – what Pendler lack in sanity they make up for with guts and commitment. The band is made up of feminist video and performance artist Sabine Marte, guitarist Markus Marte and Oliver Stotze and the three artists have managed to come up with an unsettling blend of organ-led Low-style slowcore and Morr Music-esque Germanic pop. Both of these styles are attempted and perfected well, yet they seem slightly at odds with each other, at least when you first listen. A record that wouldn’t sound out of place on the Monika or Karaoke Kalk catalogue, holding similarities with early Donna Regina and Contriva records, this is a high point in the young Karate Joe label’s catalogue and something you should definately investigate if any of those labels /artists appeal.
