Slowboy Records 002 (Germany), LP, lim. 300 copies
Da ist sie. NEUSTADT. Der erste Tonträger des Arbeitskreis Neustadt "Neustadt - Drohgebärden". Das Debut.
First of all, I have been putting this one off way too long, it sat in
the promo pile for quite awhile and I gave it many healthy listens.
Slowboy and Themes For Great Cities teamed up to release this absolute
stunner from German synth-wave newcomers, Neustadt. If you’ve been
scouring record stores for rare Kraftwerk records wondering, “why isn’t
stuff like this made anymore”, you’re going to be very happy. Dancey
synthesizer weirdness as only the Germans can do, complete with
unemotionally uttered vocals. As good as the genre gets, a must-buy if
this stuff at all interests you. It comes in a screenprinted gatefold,
has an edition of 300.
