German Army—Social Catalyst cs

German Army

Jozik Records

So I have been very lucky to get to hear many German Army songs in the last year and I think it's time I admit that German Army is our new Coil. Or at least they are certainly on their way. Every cassette has been amazing and I am loving the focused yet varied approach to this strange, melting electronic. This particular album actually sounds like a mix between Brian Eno and Throbbing Gristle and I love it. I hope some genius reissues all of this on vinyl someday soon.

The packaging is not really there but for some weird reason it kinda works for me. The name is upside down on the spine, the J-card is too short, the art is totally a placeholder but with the music this good I sorta like it. Normally I want tapes to look as good as the music and in this case the diminished layout really elevates the music. This might actually be brilliant.
