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.
This pulp album intercepted beyond the eyelashes of outer space features the talents of:
Doctor Cosmonaut – everything, but mostly voices, communist guitars and doggerel.
Mrs. Izabella Schoener – sex, frogs & nudelsalat (track 2, 4).
Mr. Mariusch Henschke – guitar (track 1), violin (track 9).
Mr. Kacper Wojaszek – keys (track 3,7), keys/vox (track 5), keys/vox/songwriting (track 6, 10, 11).
Mrs. Agata Grzeskowiak – magnificent guest vocals (track 11).
I was first introduced to A.J.’s music through Sauer Adler, his duo project with Kacper Wojaczek. Their latest effort, an EP titled Wojaczekful of Kaufmann, has changed since I first received it. Wojaczek has left and A.J. now works with German musician Radu Rusanu…
