New album, “Street Dada Brutalismus”, out today!!!

coverdadabrut2The 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.
