Sounds | Einstürzende Neubauten, Ten Grand Goldie

Twaalf jaar wachten we alweer op nieuw werk van ex-Bad Seeds Blixa Bargeld en zijn experimentele band Einstürzende Neubauten. 40 jaar zijn ze ondertussen al bezig en ze brengen later deze maand hun 12e album uit (18e als je de supports albums erbij telt), Alles Im Allem. De eerste single Ten Grand Goldie gaat verder waar Neubauten gebleven waren, teksten die vlot wisselen tussen Engels en Duits, een jazzy baslijn van Alexander Hacke en op het einde komt Blixa's dochter zelfs trombone spelen terwijl Blixa zelf in een driedelig kostuum met mondmasker staat te dansen.


After more than 12 years, Einstürzende Neubauten' long-awaited new studio albun is finally going to be released and will be performed live on an upcoming extensive tour called THE YEAR OF THE RAT. The album and the tour markl the quintessence of the band's output, opening yet another unexpected door in 40 years of ongoing sound research by a very experimental group of musicians around Blixa Bargeld, consisting of Alexander Hacke, NU Unruh, Jochen Arbeit and Rudi Moser. The Neubauteb tour in the band's own impressive and unrivaled style presents the results of these latest musical innovations. The band, like nearly no other has managed to create a musical cosmos. It has, in fact, built up its own genre by uniquely combining edgy sounds with sophisticated poetry.

Appropriately, in the Year of the Rat - the symbol of ingenuity and versatility according to Chinese zodiac - the band is not resting its laurels of its last four decedes. Instead, it curiously continues to explore everything that the sound universe has to yield, with one eye on the future and with boundless playfulness.
