ABSTRACT NYMPHO- Static EP - 12" - STATIC AGE

click to enlarge Limited edition of 300 copies on green-marble-colored vinyl! A pretty unusual release for this label, but also in every other aspects. Abstract Dream-Noise-Pop, mixtures of experimental sounds and spoken word. The duo (named after a classic CHROME song) consists of Rahel Preisser (vocals, trumpet, noise-effects) and Ghazi Barakat (also known as PHAROAH CHROMIUM, and many years ago as BOY FROM BRAZIL, ex-member of BURST APPENDIX, and lots more...) playing the "Rauschpfeif", which is a flute, that simply put works and sounds similar to a bagpipe, resp. the modern electronic version of it (called EWI). References: Hawkwind, Nico, Jane Birkin, Chrome, Krautrock...

ATLANTIKSCHWIMMER- s/t - LP - STATIC AGE

click to enlarge Vinyl-reissue of the cassette released in 1983. The band was from Kulmbach/Germany, their members running the legendary tape-label KASSETTO FIX, and producing the brilliant tape-zine "Band-It". The LP contains 9 songs of melancholic New Wave with funky danceable rhythms. A precursor to their LP released later in 1985 on ZICK ZACK.

AUS- s/t - LP - STATIC AGE

click to enlarge All Girl Post-Punk from Berlin. Cool and sinister, definitely and positively sounding like a modern reincarnation of X-MAL DEUTSCHLAND! In the recently massive wave of bands being influenced by the early 80s Post-Punk sounds, AUS are still an outstanding appearance, with their icey synth-sounds, minimalistic guitar and bass, and almost tribal (or industrial?) drum beats. And their german lyrics perfectly fit into the atmosphere created. LP comes packaged in an extremely thick cardboard-cover, with handstamped envelope included, containing a band-photo.

New Release! DIE LETZTEN ECKEN- s/t - 12" - STATIC AGE

click to enlarge Music from Berlin-based Allee Der Kosmonauten camp, what means this trio features members of AUS, PIGEON, GESTURE, etc. Vinyl contains 6 songs of dark, ice-cold and repetitive Synth-Wave, inspired by bands such as LIAISONS DANGEREUSES, DAF and X-MAL DEUTSCHLAND. It's from 2020, but could be as well directly from 1980.

GESTURE- II Tape - MC - STATIC AGE

click to enlarge The second tape (6 songs) from this Berlin-based band, featuring members of CULT VALUES, IMPOSITION MAN, and fronted by singer Eva. Sounding like a noisy and dirty hardcore-version of Death Rock. Maybe like a rowdy and rude mutation of 45 GRAVE... https://gesturebln.bandcamp.com/

HEAVY METAL- Four - MC - STATIC AGE

click to enlarge The fourth album by this non-stoppable hit machine from Berlin. Features 24 new tracks of their lo-fi high-noise punk smashers! Supposed to be released as double-LP vinyl, but that's still not happening... So meanwhile, it's available as a professionally-dubbed C65 tape.

HEAVY METAL- Smash Criticism Smash Optimism Smash Arachnophobia - LP - STATIC AGE

click to enlarge The 2nd full album by this Berlin-based band, who released one of the most outstanding Punk albums ("Anti-Music Anti-Sense Anti-You") last year. This new one features 13 more songs, and it's no less as refreshing and ecstatic as the first one. Lots of references could be named for their sound, from WIRE and ATV over URINALS and WEIRDOS to the early FLYING NUN bands... and more than that! But most of all, these guys are representing it with fun, style, a character of their own, and a great sense of (self-)irony.
