Warm, acoustic, lo-fi and heavyweight dub experimentations from mega trio Automat, aka: Jochenen Arbeit (Einst?rzende Neubauten), Achim F?rber (Phillip Boa & The Voodooclub) and Georg Zeitblom (wittmannzeitblom). Presenting the group's fourth album is Compost Records out of Munich, helping commision collaborations across the LP's eight tracks from the likes of Max Loderbauer (Vilod) and Paul St. Hilaire, aka Tikiman, to Lydia Lunch (Teenage Jesus And The Jerks), and Mika Bajinski (Swans) on vocal duties - so yes, seriously heavy weight. With subaquatic basslines wish-washing with ambient textures, acoustic drums, percussion and undeniable dub riddims, the project brings together a world of deeper new wave with touches of post punk, modular electronics and the slightest of classical refrains. Our pick: "Easy Riding".
