With 2 brand new recordings (“Android of Mu” + “Dim Dum”) we were hoping to start working on a brand new album. But while working, we realized, we are merely repeating old experiments, which were hidden well in our cupboard. So, we decided to dust off some “old” recordings and quickly issue a compilation album of unheard ideas, plus the 2 brand new tracks mentioned before. This is good news, but even better news is, that on October 23 we are entering a recording studio to cut the “Anarchokraut in Posen Stadt” album proper! Keep your fingers crossed! Punk on, stay kosmische.
With a title that best describes our way through space and time (on Earth, Earthly time 2.09.2017, 19:18 – Persean time, 23-40-3797, 9-21) and music which fuses our old and new inspirations, here’s a new album of ours. A.J. Kaufmann is now jamming with everyone and anyone he can possibly jam with in Poznan, Poland, preparing to record a new album next year, and Luna Lenina got lost with her electronics somewhere behind the Schwarzwald moon, making love to the dawn birds, learning bass. There will be a new album, and the saga will continue into 2018 earth time for sure – but no new material is currently at hand. We are void, we are ready to receive. Transmission cuts here, and katzenmusik begins.
This album is a labor of love, dreamt at 13, and recorded between 2014-2017. All of the tracks have been previously released on A.J. Kaufmann’s solo albums. This compilation is free, but if you’d like to support the artist, please visit ajkaufmann.bandcamp.com and grab an album or two.
With a decision to keep things raw and keep first takes only, the album has been completed earlier than expected. We hope you enjoy our underground blast of brutalist rock/psychedelic noise rock. Here’s “Sauer Adler”, and now off to well-deserved long holiday. Until next time!
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!
