OUT: album 'Air II • Travelling Without Moving' by Air

Air re-issued the album 'Air II • Travelling Without Moving' from 1994 on vinyl!

The second volume of the Air series is even more abstract, stringing together eleven untitled chapters in a zero gravity journey aptly dubbed “Traveling Without Moving: The Trip.” The album lives up to that loose aforementioned tagline, imagining an ever-elusive search for meaning in the interzone Namlook never really abandoned. A lot of live recorded percussion in conjunction with environmental sounds is giving this album a more human touch. Over 60 minutes in one go, eleven "trips" on this worthy successor. Ambient with and without beats between 0 and 130 BPM.

OUT: album 'Book of Fulfilled Wishes Vol.1' by Ensemble Du Verre

Despite consistently positive critical acclaim, the Ensemble du Verre, founded in 2003, was long denied a major success. However, this success came all the more clearly in 2008 in the form of the German Record Critics' Award for the album 'Sanctuary For Animals'. Since then, the project led by Hamburg-based keyboardist and drummer Sönke Düwer has repeatedly produced musical gems - such as 2011's 'The Contemporary Cowboy', a masterful combination of jazz and electronic (dance) music, which was praised by French techno and house producer Laurent Garnier.

And although things became much quieter after that, Sönke Düwer and his extremely sound-conscious creative circle always managed to present albums that exude a fascinating aura of waking, dreamy clarity through their sophisticated use of structures, reduction and concentration. Be it in the form of 'Rooms', 'My Jet-Black Notebook' or 'Book Of Fulfilled Wishes, Volume 1' - the latest collection of audio films by the composer, producer and sound director.

Abwärts singer, guitarist and bandleader Frank Z. died on January 17th.

Abwärts singer, guitarist and bandleader Frank Z. died on January 17th.

We have had close ties with Abwärts since ‘Computerstaat’ days, personally and later professionally. Only last year decided to extend our cooperation again.

It is painful to think back to the SO36 concert less than a year ago. Frank had just released the brilliant 'Superfucker' single and was full of energy, drive and in the midst of tour planning. Superfuck.

But Frank has also lived a life like few others - as straightforward as he was: Courageous, uncompromising and always with a generous portion of deep black humour. Our thoughts are with his wife Sonja, the band and everyone else who will miss him as much as we do.

OUT: album 'Live in Berlin' by Teho Teardo & Blixa Bargeld

The album contains the complete setlist of their concert at the Sonic Morgue in Berlin on December 6th 2022. This summary of their production emotionally involved the audience, who came from different parts of the world for this show. The concert is part of a series of European dates culminating in the Berlin evening, a sort of homecoming for the duo who turned the Rome/Berlin axis into a membrane continuously crossed by sounds and words in Italian, German and English.

New signing: Simon Slomma

Simon Slomma says he "slipped into" music comedy through his acting studies. But he has been making music all his life. He got into hip hop in his early twenties. "It really resonated with me. I just like language and I like rhythm. As a rapper, you're basically a talking drummer and I really liked that," says Simon. After three albums and an EP, he recently released the new EP  "Gargantua" and we are delighted to welcome him to the Freibank family.
