referencing Lupa, LP, Album, 6435 182
The alternative band Palais Schaumburg has the Honors of be composed by a group of people such as Thomas Fehlmann and Moritz Von Oswald (I don't know why, I didn't Moritz on any credits in this Long Play). "Lupa" brings exquisite combinations of supposedly disconnected rock vocals, synthesizers and the use of instruments. More than that, there is a melting pot of different rhythms, melodies and musical genres influences - from Jazz, Salsa, Electronica to the Kraut Rock or the experimental.
Sometimes, the track mood is more calm, like in "Europa Heist Amerika". There is an unexpected (did I say that? uh, pre-dic-ta-ble, at least) appearancce of xylophone sounds (on tracks like "Seite 1", or "Suss Sein, Nett Sein" - and even the caribbean musical influences are kind of present on "3 Nach 9", melted to the Kraut Rock mood. Odd! There is a horn improvisation on "Sieg Auf Knien", and the last track of A side, Rosen, brings a very introspective jazzy atmosphere.
The whole Long Play is a combination between the experimental and the underground - in a very typical german Kraut Rock perspective. Recommended!
