1 - KREIDLER - ABC - (CD) 
BUREAU B


2014 marks twenty years of KREIDLER. The band has outgrown adolescence, but remains juvenile, reckless, impetuous. They recorded their new album ABC in Tbilisi, Georgia. And there will also be a film - by Heinz Emigholz, who accompanied the last album DEN with film clips. ABC. Like TANK, it's two times three: Six tracks characterized by elliptical shifts, where suddenly the bass and drums take over the helm - or a choir appears. Indeed, a choir. KREIDLER worked together with Georgian singers: Either hovering freely in the meditative pop piece Ceramic, or defining a new space within a space, as in Nino. Nino perhaps most clearly suggests that the album was recorded in Tbilisi, Europe's southeasternmost metropolis, on the former Silk Road at the intersection of East and West.

4 - KREIDLER - DEN - (CD) 
BUREAU B


The album's opening track SUN displays an inspired beauty that is perhaps reminiscent of Eno during those periods in which he was interested in songwriting. Pan-Asian counter-melodies interplay around the stoic but light architecture of DEADWRINGER. And ROTE WuSTE is a mysterious painting, spanning a vast emotional arc between it's dark beginnings and the possibility of a conciliatory resolution. The heavily grooving CASCADE finds an utterly mesmerized Alex Paulick on guitar - just how many chord changes does Andreas Reihse get through? But one nice aspect of Kreidler is that those kinds of things hardly matter. Kreidler never burden the listener with strict didacticism. Everything flows naturally. MOTH RACE is another uninhibited dance number built on Detlef Weinrich's harsh yet supple beat, suggesting New York City as envisioned by Arthur Russell. CELTIC GHOSTS dissolves this impression through ornamentation and leads us out onto the glassy ice. WINTER is a gliding machine of magnetic, polished chrome - self-reflective. A rhythmic firework commences - devoid of all morality? Perhaps. Or rather, beyond such categories. Maybe its just the view through the window. Not a promise, but a look ahead.

6 - KREIDLER - EUROPEAN ...(NORMAL) - (L+C) 
BUREAU B


It was originally intended to be an entirely different album.Indeed, KREIDLER had already completed a new LP just prior to recording European Song. Initial sessions in Mexico City in early 2016 evolved into a record that was in many ways lighter, more minimalist and certainly more playful than the band's work of recent years. They put the finishing touches on the mixes in early November and a mastering session was booked.Then came the brutal shock of the US election. It seemed to solidify everything that was going wrong with the world. The times of uncertainty, violence and xenophobisms had attained a new quality. A cartoon villain, the evil corporate manipulator disguised as a refreshing amateur, a "man of the people", lured the masses with unconditional hate speech and now enters the world-political arena. One could say it only reached a new quality on a symbolic level: It had happened already in the UK, as it is ongoing in Turkey, in Russia, as it happens with rightwing extremists all over Europe, in Germany, in Hungary, the Netherlands or France, to name a few. Paradoxically (or rather obviously) they share the same core "values" with the government of Syria, the Arabian dictatorships, and of course the IS. Some post-leftish cynics are comfortable arguing that now the enemy is visible, and now action will speak - as if it wasn't visible before. In their 23 years of existence, KREIDLER have often made music that might be described as "dystopian". And here we are today, faced with the much greater likelihood of all those nightmare scenarios becoming excruciatingly real. Suddenly KREIDLERS previously intended new album felt wrong for this universe. The decision was made to make a NEW new record. Right away.Without notice, you will break open this delicate glass box that houses absolutely nothing.(Seda Mimaroglu, Love Songs)KREIDLER quickly reconvened in order to record a brand new set of tracks. Circumstances provided no lack of inspiration. Fortunately the group had just completed a short run of concerts and were in top playing form. The songs were captured live in the studio as spontaneous improvisational takes. There wasn't much in the way of overdubs or additional production, just some editing for conciseness. The mixes add cohesion and impact without smoothing off the rough edges of the session. The band is audibly unified. In purpose. And that unity brings out the best in KREIDLER. The stringent drumming of Thomas Klein meshes with Detlef Weinrich's edgy electronic sequences, the brutalist opulence of Andreas Reihse's synthetic soundscapes are complemented by Alexander Paulick's restrained flourishes and rhythmic guitar and bass work. As usual, there are no actual "vocals" on European Song. Yet abstract, voice-like sounds often occur, suggesting a terrified crowd or a choir of hooligans. Repetition and modulation are the yin and yang in the band's hybrid of UnKraut | NoTech | DarkPop | Bunker. The hallmark interplay between man and machine results from a combination of collective experience and blind trust in the moment. It's a group thing. On purpose.

8 - KREIDLER - TANK - (CD) 
BUREAU B


"Tank," is a continuation of Kreidler, of course. Indeed, "Tank" does relate to the narrative of "Mosaik 2014", but "Tank" also deals with the break from that narrative. And in some respects the album recalls their very first effort, "Riva" from 1994, which may lie in the pace of its development, or the fact that they have tried to keep the structure of the pieces simple and direct, that we used the computer more as a canister, a container or a vessel and less as an operating room. And of course, the fact that Kreidler has once again become a four-piece band, a band with a clear understanding of roles: a drummer, a bassist who can also reach for the guitar, a keyboard player and a man for the electronics. They have been asked to remix artists such as Einstuerzende Neubauten, Depeche Mode and Faust among 20 others and cooperated with artists like Klaus Dinger (NEU!), Add (N) to X, Young Gods, Theo Altenberg, Momus, Leo Garcia, Pyrolator and Chicks on Speed. Their music has been used for high profile fashion shows (Chanel, Lacoste, Giles Deacon), films, theatre and dance performances.
