Harald Nies - Cableworld (50635)

„Cableworld" is the name of the new album of the spacerock-musician
Harald Nies. Whereas his last album "Torodial Sequences" was dominated
by experimental, meditative moments, with his new album the musician
shows a slightly different side: "Calbleworld" is full of catchy
melodies at a high level using sounds from past and present. Elegant
guitar-soli are skilfully combined with dreamy sequences. Nies even
adventures a short trip to the world of 4tothefloor in his own manner.
"Cableworld" is full of music, which does not follow a fixed scheme
but whose catchy grooves invite the audition to daydreams. Moreover,
the theme of the album "Calbleworld" can be found in the music
immediately which makes the album, in my opinion, a real insiders' tip.

Faber - Universal Flow (56996)

Real masterpieces of music always leave the handwriting of the artist.
The musician Roland Schmidt who lives in Lübeck, Germany, achieved
this already with his debut album. Now, five albums later, the
tradition is being continued with "Universal Flow". It sounds like
Faber instantly. The musician adventures sound technical experiments
and interrupts his album with different moods which only unfold in
combination with traditional electronic music. Catchy melody patterns
repeat unremarkably during the runtime of the album and fuse all
together. Faber's music hopefully never grows up which is fully appreciated.

FD.Project - Nocturna (76389)

You remember the last album of FD Project; Water and Earth? As a bonus
track, the German guitarist/synthesist had inserted an extract of a
long improvised title that he had played during a concert at Satzvey
Castle on May 7th, 2011. The concert was presented as "The Other Side
of... FD Project". Well this other side of Frank Dorittke is now known
as Nocturna. And it's this long composition, redone in studio, which
furnishes Frank Dorittke's last opus on the Syngate label. Nocturna is
a long minimalist carousel of more than 71 minutes divided into 5
parts that lot of twinkling arpeggios, choirs and breaths of astral
synth torment throughout of a hypnotic spiral procession which feed of
fine sequential movements. Strongly filled by influences of Mike
Oldfield and Tangerine Dream, Nocturna goes down softly such as a pact
with sweetness.

As a door which opens on its peevish hinges, the long polyrhythmic
tunnel of "Nocturna" opens with tones of caustic and reverberating
waves. The synth layers which roam in suspension are squeaking among
the howlings of twisted metal, hiding some harmonious chords which
make contrast to a heavy intro where metal engenders coldness. But far
away we hear a delicate carousel makes swirl its chords of glasses,
embracing a splendid ritornello which is not without recalling the
strong influence of Mike Oldfield and his Tubular Bells on Frank
Dorittke. Some dark and meditative synth layers complain, such as
violins' sighs, and caress this delicate floating spiral that a bass
line with upward jolts comes to cover. From note to note, the intro of
"Nocturna" prepares its first mutation. This bass line opens the ball
to crystalline arpeggios which are only passing by, while the
percussions shake a little this innocent waddle. This new rhythm in
permutation accelerates the weakened flow of this soft oniric intro
which swirls with more heaviness under good synth solos. The 2nd phase
of "Nocturna" begins nearby the 22nd minute with a warmer approach.
Morphic waves and choirs push a fine sequential movement to skip
stealthily on an always circular structure. The rhythmic output is
more fluid and melodic. Standing on neutral percussions it revolves
under soloing synth breezes, which are not without reminding to me
some nice melodious approaches of Tangerine Dream from the Schmoelling
era, and some beautiful shimmering arpeggios in which the sparkling
gets mixed harmoniously within angelic breaths. This delicate and
somehow oniric tempo brings us up until the 31st minute point, moment
where Frank Dorittke grabs his guitar. This 3rd segment is a beautiful
unexpected passage which cuts the spiral magnetism of "Nocturna". It
offers a strange structure of abstracted Western with chords of
solitary cowboy which drag among limping sequences such as clogs badly
adjusted under a sky pummeled by solos of a guitar as incisive as
poetic which competes with a synth with aromas more and more
influenced by Tangerine Dream.

We are at the 40 minutes spot and "Nocturna" starts changing skin like
a snake on fire. A sequenced bass line emerges from the astral
crystalline breaths. Its ascending movement takes back whirling
structure which imposes the quiet rhythm of "Nocturna". More fluid,
the twisted ritornello rolls its sequenced chords under ethereal
breaths and prismatic keys. After a short black passage, crystal clear
sequences dance below the paradisiacal breaths of a smooth synth. A
synth which hears the sequences subdivided their keys and gets cling
to this upward bass line which had evaporated earlier, while
percussions beat down to draw a short rhythmic turbulence. And little
by little the silence of celestial bodies is returning. The poetry
settles down with waters which flow from nowhere and breaths forgotten
in a musical labyrinth where shine floodlit keys. And the Frank rhythm
gets back. Hammered of sober percussions, it kowtows beneath
iridescent winds and arpeggios which shine constantly around the
permutations of "Nocturna". We reach the 58 minutes and the spiralling
crystal notes draw arcs more fluid while the sequential movement opens
wide its musical tangent, leaving its sequenced ions multiplied and
crisscrossed, to bind itself to another bass line as much hesitating
than as softly throbbing. From fluid to bouncy, the rhythm of
"Nocturna" continues its accelerated permutations over a short period
of time, ending its procession polyrhythmic in the airs of a slow
morphic techno where the knocks of sequences and percussions are
coated by a synth with perfumes of Vangelis.

Writing a long suite of 71 minutes without losing anything of its
vital lead is an ambitious project that FD Project fulfills very well.
Forgetting his guitars and concentrating more on sequences and musical
effects of the synths, Frank Dorittke shapes a beautiful melodious
universe which walks in the furrows of Mike Oldfield and his series of
virginal chords which draws the main lines of his cult opus Tubular
Bells. I liked it very much. This is nice Berlin School. Poetic and
dreamlike, without clashes nor complexities, which flows like a
beautiful soporific tale, keeping us well awake; eyes closed to
daydream on the winds of the chimed spirals.

Mythos - Quasar (76076)

Progressive electronica and synth rock. Mythos hereby continue their
ongoing re-releasing of classic albums. Quasar, originally delivered
back in 1980, is something of a Janus album: looking backward it
recalls the progressive rock roots of the band - Tull-like flutes,
dramatic Krautrock moogs and ambitious melodic structures; looking
forward it hints at the synth-pop explosion that was to dominate a lot
of early eighties music. Berlin school music as well as much of the
popular rock output was undergoing swift change at this time and
Mythos seem to capture the whole spectrum of that change here on
Quasar. There are some fairly heavy sections where chugging rhythms
and live drums propel earnest male vocals and zappy, squirting leads.
Other tracks have a Teutonic grandeur, focusing the lengthy pomp of
the seventies into brief three-four minute tracks. Electro-beats of
programmed percussion running in tandem with sequencer patterns form
the back bone of other recordings.

Quasar has been lovingly repackaged into a sharp digipack of two
panels with a generous sixteen page booklet insert. The outer cover
presents the artwork from the SKY Records vinyl original: the brittle
form of a huge insect held aloft upon a backdrop of strikingly red
craggy hills and distant settlements. The rear cover holds a tracklist
with times alongside. Within, a studio shot under twin lighting
umbrellas hides behind the booklet; a simple logo on black ground to
the right. The booklet holds a fascinating collection of performance
photographs and gear shots that nicely reveal something of the musical
environment of the band. There is also a lengthy explanation in both
German and English of how the album came about. Details are revealed
of the recording challenges of the time and the choices facing a band
with personnel concerns and an exploding array of new technological options.

Quasar was released originally via Hamburg label Sky Records at a
turning point for Mythos - the third line-up was approaching its end
with a couple of vinyl albums under their belt - a plethora of novel
kit items was opening up - musical styles were rapidly evolving. The
1980 release of this follow-up to the previous year's Concrete City
straddles this period of flux. Mythos main man Stephan Kaske began
with a seasoned touring band and concluded as pretty much a one-man
outfit producing the new album with studio musicians. There are eleven
tracks here from the original release, most a little under or over the
four minute mark - pithy concentrates and brief gutsy statements as
opposed to the lengthy extravaganzas of the previous decade. The album
concludes with an almost ten minute montage of Mythos radio, TV and
film music jingles. This record is one of the few Mythos creations
that has thus far eluded re-release (along with 1981's Grand Prix) -
catch it now restored to its for mere glory.
