Ellen Allien & Apparat
Orchestra Of Bubbles
This is an amazing album. I heard the cd version first and later bought the vinyl to hear things clearer, not only are they much clearer, there are several extended moments throughout, and the unique track-listing keeps the bubbles popping better than the cd does. The extended opening on 'Way Out' is one of the most amazing delay fixtures on the album. Tailored to the dance floor, but also for your ears. rEither way this is pure gold form the duo.
On his previous albums, Richie's always had the plastikman image guiding him, but then he presented the bridge between 'Musik' and 'Consumed' with nothing but a faint, imprint ghost of the plastikman and notes as to it being a form of closure for the previous alums, disappearing into 'Consumed' and on. It's a transitional album, but more of an understanding about how the sounds that we associate the plastikman with change overtime. It gives us a chance to remember and look foreword in a length of space. Like a good dream, but when you wake up, he's no where to be found.
Past is Prologue
One of my favorite new artists, perfect music for a rainy day. The mysterious shapes beneath the sheets is a really interesting aesthetic choice, especially where the image on the back side gives us a little more of the image. Perfect album cover for such a mysterious sound.
