Our brand new album titled simply “Musik” is currently in the works. It will take some time, as we want this to be an even better album than “The Aumega Sessions”, which reached Top-5 in the Underground Charts of the German Eclipsed-Rock Magazin for June 2018. So, enough of jam-sessions (though there will be free form madness on the new album for sure), and time to get to serious (though always with a sense of humor) songwriting… also master the new synths that appeared at Via Kosmische. We think the new, and very cool, album will be ready for January 2019… until then, fellow space tourists!
After Aumega Sessions, we had some leftover jams that we edited and released as “Emptorus Reperitus”, a faux latin title, which is a tribute to Blue Cheer. We also had some unfinished A.J. Kaufmann material, for songs he wrote as a kid, and finished in 2018, motivated by tapes he found during his move from one apartment to another. It’s called “Telegraph Hill Conservation Area”. We hope you enjoy the albums. We also had a nice radio session for the local Radio Afera station – in a no-bass line-up, completed in Poznan just a day before entering the radio studio. So it was really a loose poetic jam broadcasted live. More news on that in a seperate post….
Here are the albums:
Goście z Kosmosu znacząco ułatwili nagranie i wypuszczenie tej płyty jeszcze w listopadzie. Na ich życzenie pozostają anonimowi. Ja osobiście cieszę się, że płyta skończona jeszcze w 2017 roku, choć nie nagrana w studio za parę tysięcy marek pod okiem R-U Kaisera. No cóż – inne czasy. Mam nadzieję, że nasz producent przynajmniej w geście podróży lysergicznych dorównuje RUKowi. W końcu to też ja. I Ty, drogi słuchaczu. Kosmische on…
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!
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.
