STATION 17

Werkschau. Out February 1st, 2019

Anyone who has followed the progress of Station 17 over the past three decades will know: the only constant in this band is change. Evolving, stretching musical parameters, testing limits — these are the guiding principles of the band founded in 1988 by a group of mentally handicapped residents in Hamburg. The anniversary compilation "Werkschau" offers a wonderful introduction to the cosmos of these pioneers of inclusive music production.

GÜNTER SCHICKERT

Nachfalter. Out February 15th, 2019

Günter Schickert's debut "Samtvogel" (Brain 1975) and the follow-up "Überfällig" (Sky 1980) were two of the most significant guitar albums of the Krautrock era. His new album "Nachtfalter" carries on from these beginnings. Recorded during the scorching hot summer of 2018, "Nachtfalter" shows the pioneer of the echo guitar sound his very best. Here Schickert was assisted by Andreas Spechtl (Ja, Panik) who recorded the album and played the drums. They form a truly winning team: Spechtl selected the best moments of Schickert's guitar tracks, mixed them while also supplying some own loops.

RICHARD PINHAS

L'Ethique. Reissue from 1982. Out February 15th, 2019

Following the vaguely poppy shapes of 1980's album "East West", his fifth solo album "L'Ethique" saw ex-Heldon guitarist and synth wizard Richard Pinhas return to bigger and bolder band-like methods. After the release he disappeared from the limelight for nearly a decade and returned in the 1990s.

SOLARIZE

Nachtwerk (1991–1998). Out January 11th, 2019

Since 1981, Wilfried Franzen and Thomas Grötz have been developing their own version of experimental pop music, which oscillates between song structures, noise, and psychedelic trance. Bass and keyboards form the instrumental substructure of the duo's compositions, which are enriched with guitars, violin, piano, electronic percussions, and samples. After self-publishing various cassettes and CDs, "Nachtwerk" is the first official release of SOLARIZE, which presents selected pieces from the years 1991 to 1998.
