Verlass Die Stadt by Gustav

8/10 Phil 02 July 2008
Gustav is the latest release on Chicks On Speed Records. She apparently is Austria's answer to Bjork and she won the Amadeus award in 2005 (Austria's answer to the brilliant Mercury Music prize award). Also she's a massive icon of the feminist music scene (I have to admit to not being aware of that particular scene... typical bloke) and is a media artist (2 words which fill me with fear) as well as a musician. A reasonably impressive resume so you'd be amazed you'd not heard of her already. Label hyperbole aside I quite like the music. Bonkers quirky pop gear centered around electronics..... laptop trickery etc... pop songs all sung in German with a fresh crazy approach. Possibly a little kitsch at times but it's certainly not without charm. I think the Bjork comparison is lazy. Any female artist who is making electronic pop music that's a bit off kilter gets tarred with the Bjork brush. Lazy lazy.... you wouldn't find me doing things like that. Oh no.... It's more like a less extreme Kevin Blechdom I reckon but sung in German. Verlass Die Stadt is on CD/LP.
