Messier Objects by The Notwist is a compilation of music recorded by the band for various theatre productions and radio plays. The music was recorded between the release of their 2008 album, The Devil, You & Me and 2014’s Close To The Glass. It was a period when the band also worked on solo projects. Throughout the 17 tracks on the album, the evolution of the band’s sound can be charted.
Available on double vinyl LP with etching screen printed sleeve and CD.
1115 are a bit of an enigma. Vocalist Fehler Kuti teaming up with the mysterious “Grey” (Julian Maison/G.E.F.) for their Post-Europe “Opera”. Dark, psychedelic, distubing yet playful, their debut full length is an artistically free no-man’s land -- hints of Nicolas Jaar, Arca, Dean Blunt, and Juan Atkins combine with ghost like vocals. Vinyl and CD on Alien Transistor.
The latest release from Rayon, aka Markus Archer, aka singer of The Notwist. Though A Beat of Silence is a quiet and considered record, several of the numbers here create ambient textures via the use of organic rather than effect-laden instrumentation. See how the title track and ‘Dots’ bring about a feel of gradual motion not through delay pedals but through careful layering of marimba, vibraphone and piano. Out on vinyl and CD through Morr Music.
Micha Archer of The Notwist (along with drummer Andreas Harberl) set up Alien Ensemble to explore instrumental arrangement, to take it down a gear, and strip things back. Their second album is further stripped back with it sounding like a backing band to jazz pieces without the soloing madman upfront. Sometimes krauty sometimes lounge-appropriate, but really quite serene.
Nook is the second full-length album to be recorded by German band, The Notwist and was originally released in 1992. Nook is an example of their early sound which took in elements of heavy metal and dark indie rock rather than their later electronica sound for which they are more well known.
Nook is available on CD.
The Notwist are the cream of German indie rock, and by their fifth album, Neon Golden, they had really hit their stride. First released in 2002, it is now seeing reissue by City Slang. The band have a nicely inventive approach to what they do, filling in all the corners of their sound with textures. CD / LP reissue.
On their fourth album, Shrink, German indie band The Notwist made a departure from their early punk days. It was the first album by the band to include more experimental sounds, embracing electronica, ambient sounds and even a bit of jazz. Shrink was originally released in 1998.
Shrink is available on CD.
The Notwist were formed in 1989 in Germany. The band's first few albums could be classed as heavy metal or dark indie rock. 12, their third album from 1995 is regarded as being the point of transition from their early dark, guitar-driven sound to their later more acclaimed electronica sound.
12 is reissued on CD and LP
