German Army - Social Catalyst

Escaping the past is easy with so much music available. Modern sounds and techniques can create music completely different from what was listened to. Artist today can abandon or copy the past. German Army has grabbed just enough of the frequency of early 80s, and allowed listeners to move forward, still having safe ears in listening pleasure.

The beats and effects on "Social Catalyst"  evoke a diverse trip through a soundscape of cavernous falls. Some light or platform of security and then blackness and unknown sonic beings make themselves present, loud and wondrous. This is early Cabaret Voltaire meets early African Head Charge while listening to a Witchbeam cassette.

Fascinating and simply really good, German Army has always interests me. Sometimes to far advanced for my novice ears, "Social Catalyst" is a release i can keep on flipping over. Out of everything recently being released, Jozik Records delivers another essential cassette for expanding the spectrum of sound. You will be thankful watching theses spools spin, and listening to a German Army release with the ability to appropriate new recruits.

Tomentosa is the place for my purchase. If sold out there Jozik Records still has copies.
