After successful writing/recording sessions October 21-24 2016, half of the album is now ready, and so is the cover, which you can see attached to this post. “Polish Tribal Music” will contain the track “Savages”, shared previously on youtube, and also “Barbaric Obelisks”, which I will upload to youtube soon. Four more tracks: “Luzifer in Kanaan”, “Champagne Desert”, “Space Swords and Highways”, and “Wake Up Girl” complete the image of “side B” of the future album. I’m about to take a little break, and return to the second (“side A”) half of the LP later this year, so that it will be ready for an early 2017 release. I’m basically listening to two albums right now: Hawkwind’s “Doremi Fasol Latido”, and Venom’s “Welcome to Hell”. So, I further radicalized the “brutalist rock” sound of Sauer Adler, and it will hover somewhere between those two albums mentioned, updated to 2017, arrogant and uncompromising, with a bit of retro-Kraftwerkian electro-punk. I also dig a lot of noise, no-wave and early Sonic Youth lately, so that will definitely show in the new material too, especially in lead guitars and bass solos. Stay tuned for more info as the work continues!
A new The Sauer Adler album, “Polish Tribal Music” is in its writing stages right now… we hope to share a new track by the end of the year. In the meantime, why not check out the A.J. Kaufmann solo catalogue @ http://ajkaufmann.bandcamp.com. We suggest starting with “Stoned Gypsy Wanderer” (2014) or “Kaufi” (2015), and moving from there into various albums, demos and ideas of the Sauer Adler main man. Hope you enjoy the sound, the vision, the music!
Things got so busy at Sauer Adler HQ, that we forgot to share the news about the new album, “Trippen Mit…” here. It’s been released August 5 2016. It is available for free @ our bandcamp page http://saueradler.bandcamp.com. Enjoy!
The new Sauer Adler album, “Trippen Mit…” is almost almost ready… Inspired by Melvins, krautrock, science fiction b- or even z-movies, road movies, The Who, Kurt Cobain’s wildest live solo guitar, Butthole Surfers, The Residents, Chrome, Hawaiian shirts, straw hats, jam sessions with local musicians, books about Russian submarines, random Polish art postcards, Norman Spinrad, and pornographic lighters it promises a lo-fi DIY brutalist rock sound experience unlike anything else you’ve possibly heard before, yet somewhat familiar to ears accustomed to space rock and krautrock. Here’s the first track off this album, “Wings”. Hope you enjoy, Sauer Adler!
The new Sauer Adler album, “Street Dada Brutalismus” was recorded between London and Poznan, Poland this summer. It contains 10 new tracks in the A.J. Kaufmann-coined genre of “brutalist rock”, focusing on recording first takes only, lazy vocals, dirty guitar riffs, mostly muddy and atonal guitar solos, primitive drum machines and even more primitive electronics. Our inspiration to make this album credited to “The Sauer Adler” started with the “Cold War Kid” track transformed from a heavy riffed rocker to electronic oddity earlier this year, when we both thought, hey, let’s make an album together, while aural impulses ranged from various Polish punk rock bands like Moskwa or Brak, Chrome, Ramones, early Pink Floyd, Hawkwind, Black Sabbath, Amon Duul II, Van der Graaf Generator, to brutalist architecture, old mystic books and nursery rhymes sheet music which made love to our ears in high concrete fashion. Recording was done live direct to the machine, but took about two months with large breaks for various life-related reasons, and turned out a bit claustrophobic, especially on headphones. We had much fun making this album, and we hope you will have lots of fun listening to it. Yours, Doctor&Luna, “The Sauer Adler”, 2016.
