Das Bierbeben

Alles Fallt

by Nicolai Hartvig

29 August 2006


Repetitive bass thumps, ‘80s keyboards, and monotonous guitar strummings are layered with judgmental vocal, navelgazing insistingly professed by the German spoken/sung vocals of two same-tone female vocalists, simply known as The East and The West. It is a futile sense of mystery introduced into a formula that is annoyingly caustic in its simplicity, seemingly minimalistic only for stubborn obnoxiousness. Alles Fallt is an album for self-important performance art students, high on their own “art”, to inebriatedly stomp to. You may get a bit of a rise out of this album, but it will likely be one of annoyance. Or revulsion at arrogance. What’s your poison?
