review: Fräulein Luftwaffe - Leeches Come E.P.


The Etch Wear label from Norway did it again! After the great Epilektrician LP here is a single sided 12" LP... well that makes it an EP... by Fräulein Luftwaffe. You get served minimal electronics as I love them and as they should sound in my opinion... raw, industrial, slightly experimental electronic sounds done in a minimalistic way... and free so not restricted in sound and style...

The sound is unpolished but not necessarily analogue or lo-fi... and the music comes with some suprises... the rhythms are not your standard drum machine patterns we know by now from all the retro synth bands around... they are techno influenced, broken sometimes, elektro and IDM inspired maybe here and there... but again in an atypical way...

There is even a short of hip hop / trip hop beat to found in there... and the vocals are delivered in a distorted / industrialized rap kind of way... sounds maybe weird but it works for sure!

If you like Milligram Retreat and especially their rougher side then you should check this out for sure... also if you like the more adventurous minimal electronic of La Seduction Des Innocents this EP could be of interest to you...

The side with no grooves / no music is painted in the best minimal art way... if Frank Stella would have been into dots instead of stripes (in his black and white period) he would not have done better...

This record comes in an edition of 100 hand numbered copies. There are some copies in the Enfant Terrible webshop here...

Here is a full track from the record...
